Renée Thornton - Women Hunt

Renée Thornton - Women Hunt
Renee Thornton is leading the charge with the Women Hunt program, part of the Wild Sheep Foundation. With women being the fastest growing part of the hunting industry, the need for something to help open the doorway for women across North America and provide opportunities to involve new hunters to learn from experts and give them the knowledge and tools to go back into their communities and share with others was a huge reason for the start of this program. Renee's personal experiences getting into hunting later in life and knowing she needed a good mentor to be a successful and ethical hunter, has led her down a path to be able to share what she has learned. This was such a great conversation about a lot of different topics within the sport of hunting. Be sure and follow the Women Hunt program and stay up to date with all the great work at The Wild Sheep Foundation.
