EP076: Whitney Vau
**DISCLAIMER: There were some technology glitches.**
Whitney Vau grew up on a farm in California where hunting was a way of life. :She learned all about how to keep the farm growing and what animals do to the plants. This farm was not the typical farm your thinking of. It was a vineyard. She learned all about the grapes and the critters that wanted to eat them, taught to her by her father and grandfather.
Learning about it on the farm transformed into learning about the hunting world out in the field. She was ofter the only girl at camp but it never bothered her. From taking the time to learn all that she could and hunt with her father and grandfather, Whitney has been able to harvest many animals over the years. She also went on her first ladies hunt where she learned how fun it is to hunt with other women.
Whitney talks with me today about her family and her hunting adventures, and how she works it in with her work.
