There already is one and this thread is in itI feel of all the hunting forums I frequent, HuntTalk is the most friendly, helpful and open (except for a very few topics) forum available. Maybe I am wrong and just looking though a male's lens, but I feel any questions you posed here would be replied to honestly and openly without the "stupid comments". Maybe it is time for a women's hunting subtopic for HuntTalk?
Oops! I just click on the new posts link and peruse them all at once.There already is one and this thread is in it
To the OP....I think the issue is this site and many like it are male dominated. I personally would suggest google if you are not finding what you want here after the 2 weeks you have been a member. There are hundreds of thousands of posts here and I'm not sure how many are women related, but tons of info.
Ok, I get what you mean now.Maybe a key component was looking for women based web sites or forums or fb pages.
Ha! I think this to myself all the time! Those damn big feet step on every pine cone within a 4 foot swath, I swear! I am SO much quieter....... how the men make so much noise, ...
This has been my experience as well. I like the entire process - research, scouting, all the little things that make up the hunt itself, processing and all the culinary wonders to be had. The only people I have met who share the same level of interest in hunting that I do have been men thus far, so that's who I talk/hang out/sometimes hunt with. Most of the other female hunters I've interacted with seem to have a more superficial interest, and it's hard to have really meaningful discussions specifically about hunting with them - certainly not the same level of discussion that I can share with the guys. I know there are a few other women out there more like me, but I'm not aware of any within a proximity to me that would allow us to gather over drinks for stories and lies.I would love to have regular roundtable beers with women who also hunt mostly solo. I just don't think there are that many of us. Take the number of ladies with hunting tags, subtract the ones who don't really hunt but their guy has them put in for tags anyways, subtract the women who have to have to be catered to in order to get persuaded to even come to hunting camp, subtract the wives and girlfriends that only go with their husbands or boyfriends, subtract the women who just walk around the woods taking selfies with their perfect hair, and you really don't have very many women left who are hungry enough to scout new areas, do hours of research, spend long days scouting and glassing, and are unafraid to hunt solo without anyone leading them around.
This is the second time I have seen you mention the Colorado BHA event. Backcountry Hunters and Anglers group. I found the web site. I will look into it. I don't think I have taken the steps to actually joining any actual groups and this may help me. Thank you for the suggestion.You may run into us sometime if you ever attend Colorado BHA events, as we're fairly active members.
