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.

But let’s face it: Historically, women have been underrepresented in the outdoor sports, and too often marginalized. That’s all changing. 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.

Membership Breakdown. Which one is right for you?

One Year = 365 Days

Daily Range Fee:  $20

  • $20 x 365 days = $7300 for the year

If you purchased a “One year membership” instead of paying the daily range fee, you save $6,950.01

If you visit the range more than 18 times a year, it is a good idea to get a “one year membership” for $349.99.

Example:  18 daily range visits = $360 vs $349.99 one year membership allows you to visit the range 365 days.


One Year Membership:  $349.99

  • $349.99 / 365 days = .95 cents per day

Let’s say you plan to go to the range only 1/4 of the entire year.  That is about 91 days of out of 365 days.  By purchasing a “One year membership”, you save $1,470.01.

1/4 days out of the year is about 91 days.  91 days x $20 daily range fee = $1,820 in daily range fee.

Here is another scenario.  $349.99 / 12 months = $29.16 per month.  Therefore even if you visit the range three times a month, you save $30.84.  It would have cost you $60 for three visits in a month on a daily range fee.


6 Month Membership: $279.49

  • $279.49 / 182 days (~ 6 months) = $1.53 per day

Let’s say you went a quarter of the time of your membership, that is about 45 days.  45 days in daily range fee would be $900.  Therefore, even if you visit the range a 1/4 of the time of the 6 month membership, you are saving $620.51.


Monthly Auto Debit:  $34.99

  • $34.99 / 30 days = $1.16 per day
  • $34.99 x 12 months = $419.88

If you visit the range 3 times a month, you save $25.01 vs the $20 daily range fee; which would end up costing you $60 for the 3 visits.

Monthly Auto Debit Memberships renew monthly until cancelled.
