EP081: Courtney Nicolson

Courtney Nicolson is not your average hunter. She didn't join into the hunting throng until later in life. She grew up going out fishing with her dad and had fun in the water. 

She has always loved writing and TV and decided that that was the industry she wanted to get into. After graduating from a fine arts school, she was made the decision to apply for Sportsmen Channel. Her love for the outdoors grew. After speaking with some of the show hosts, and getting asked if she hunted, she decided it was time to give it a try. Then she was hooked! 

Today, we talk on all things Courtney! From going to school, her favorite hunt and women in the field, Courtney tells us about her experiences!
