The New Game Changers: 11 Women Who Are Redefining the Outdoors

These 11 outdoors women—pro anglers, big-game guides, bad-ass hunters, dead-eyes, and divas—are inspiring other females to take to the outdoors in record numbers.

In 1951, Joan Wulff won the National Fisherman’s Distance Casting event against an all-male field by casting a fly 131 feet. Brenda Valentine was shooting 10-rings with a compound bow in the ’80s. It was more than 25 years ago that Christine Thomas founded Becoming an Outdoors-Woman, and Melissa Bachman launched Deadly Passion Productions back in 2010. In short, highly skilled women excelling at hunting and fishing are nothing new.

Thanks to the aforementioned pioneers and others like them, the number of outdoors women is now exploding—to the point that increased female participation is the biggest trend in our sports today. Just as important, women are carving their own space in the outdoors.

You already know some of the most prominent female faces, but a legion of women are making a difference on the grassroots level. Here are 11 hardcore hunters, anglers, and shooters, who by example and by outreach are making the outdoors a place where more women want to be.

There are lessons and legends, secrets and skills, traditions and tools. And, perhaps best of all, there are stories. Stories that are so great they almost become heirlooms of their own, because we can’t help but pass them down. Stories like the 15 you’re about to read.
