EP004: Christy Barney

Christy Barney has been a lifelong hunter. She would go along with her dad from a young age, but really got into it after she met her husband and received her first bow.

Over the years, she has been able to harvest some amazing animals, including a trip to South Africa. 

Many people get their information about South African hunts from the media and not from looking into them themselves. Christy tells us about her trip and and how great it was to work with the outfitter she and her husband went with.

Not only is Christy a busy hunter, she has also been working with some young women to train them in archery and ready them for their first hunts. 

Things you'll learn from Christy:

  • When you go on an African hunt, you can select your harvest animals.
  • Outfitters work with so many hunters that they take care of almost everything for you.
  • Meat from your African harvests gets divided up. You get to have a sample, then the rest is either donated to sent to be sold.
  • She shoots her bow every morning to help with muscle memory.
