Boddington and Lansdowne Partner to Introduce the She Hunts Skills Camp

Meet Brittany Boddington: Partner of the She Hunts Skills Camp
I’ve partnered with my good friend Shannon Lansdowne to introduce the She Hunts Skills Camp taking place at the famous 777 Ranch in Hondo, Texas. Her dad was an outfitter in British Columbia for many years and he taught her everything about hunting and guiding from an early age. We realize that not all female hunters are lucky enough to grow up with this type of father figure. Some lady hunters start hunting because their spouse or significant other likes to hunt but typically the guy still ends up doing all the set up and prep for the hunt. Our goal with this skills camp is to give ladies all the skills that they need to be successful and independent hunters. My dad took me to the range for the first time and I was so nervous to pull the trigger on the gun that I would flinch terribly. He told me to stop thinking about the gun and that this little gun wouldn’t hurt me. It was then that he taught me about controlling my breathing. I could see the little chicken through my crosshairs but by the time I pulled the trigger I would somehow shift the gun and miss. I am very fortunate to have had my dad as a teacher but now I feel like it is time to share some of that knowledge with the next generation of female hunters.

Part of loving the outdoors is sharing it with the amazing hunting community that I’ve had the privilege to call family for the last decade. It is no secret that hunting is still a male dominated sport but the tide has begun to shift. There are new females deciding to hunt for the first time all over our nation and a lot of them don’t have a dad like mine to show them the ropes. This camp is for them! I’ve partnered with my good friend Shannon Lansdowne to introduce the She Hunts Skills Camp taking place at the famous 777 Ranch in Hondo, Texas.

Skills Camp

I was fortunate enough to have my father as a resource when I was learning to hunt but many women don’t have anyone to guide them. Shannon also grew up in a hunting household. Her dad was an outfitter in British Columbia for many years and he taught her everything about hunting and guiding from an early age. We realize that not all female hunters are lucky enough to grow up with this type of father figure. Some lady hunters start hunting because their spouse or significant other likes to hunt but typically the guy still ends up doing all the set up and prep for the hunt. Our goal with this skills camp is to give ladies all the skills that they need to be successful and independent hunters.

In the last few years I have met several female hunters that had no male hunters to lead them into the sport but rather they had chosen to become hunters on their own. There is a clean eating movement happening in the US that has pushed a lot of women to take up hunting in order to feed their families with clean non GMO meat. I applaud these women for taking action for their families but I know it…
