Make no mistake, seeing plenty of game not only helps spark interest, but also allows the student to practice hunting skills under realistic conditions. It's one of the things that separates this operation from the rest. Some skills that women can expect to learn from TinaMarie are hiking, glassing, stalking, shooting, and even field dressing, skinning, caping and meat handling. During deer season, the five days of training she is offering can include harvesting a buck ($2,000) or a doe ($1,250). During the off season, the cost of her training course drops to $1,000. During this time of year, a healthy population of wild pigs on the ranch provides the opportunity for hands-on field experience. That should not be a deterrent, because anyone who can clean and skin a pig will have no trouble with a deer.
I talked to several women about this program while I was doing my research for this article. One thing they all agreed on was, they definitely feel more comfortable taking advice from another woman, rather than a man. Even though the program has just started, it has been so successful that during deer season only doe hunts are left for the next two years. So, if you are interested, you should contact TinaMarie........(continued)
