EP002: Sadie Kennel
Sadie Kennel is what you would call an Ultimate Outdoors Woman! She can rough it with the best of them with no problems.
Sadie started hunting at 17 as she became interested in the archery word inspired by her friends. Her first hunt was a cow elk hunt where she harvested a cow and felt that she was very fortunate. First hunt and first harvest? Winner! This ultimately has become her favorite hunt.
Sadie classifies her biggest hunting disappoint to be in 2014 on a fall elk/deer hunt. She also calls it her frustrating learning curve: Excited➡️frustrated➡️excited➡️frustrated➡️excited. She dive us the full details in her interview.
She currently hunts as often as she can with her boyfriend and will occasional go out by her self, but has some anxieties about going out alone. Her family supports her passion for hunting and being in the outdoors. They say that she is following in her grandfathers footsteps. She did get a bit of a hiccup with social media though. She and her boyfriend created a time lapse of them building a antler shed tree and some of the anti-hunters were not thrilled about that..... (Find the link here)
Sadie practices her archery skills as often as she can and keeps her bow with her in case she can get away from work on her lunch break and make it to the range. She has been shooting the Hoyt Vixen but just recently made the switch to the Nitrum.
This girl is an amazing avid hunter and has some awesome stories!
