Barbara Crown

Barbara Crown is the editor and publisher of The Hunting Report. She first came to The Hunting Report as managing editor in 1999 She brought with her a bachelor of science in communications from Florida International University and a great passion for hunting, along with 10 years of professional writing experience. Her own hunting experience at the time involved numerous years of bowhunting for whitetails in several US states while on vacation with her husband and partner, Kevin. They also spent much time wingshooting over their Brittany spaniel. In the years since, Barbara has been fortunate to expand her horizons with trips to Arizona and Mexico for Coues deer, Argentina for red stag and ducks, Namibia and Tanzania for plains game and Cape buffalo, as well as the local alligator, wild pig and deer hunting available in her home state of Florida.

      During her time at The Hunting Report, Barbara has read, digested and researched thousands of subscriber hunt reports and investigated countless stories on hunting all over the world. Her knowledge on international hunting runs the gamut from the challenges of traveling with firearms to the specifics of tur hunting in the Caucasus Mountains to the latest trophy shipment problems caused by government bungling.
