The Canadian Sportswoman Society started because I, like so many others, did not grow up having anyone to help get them into hunting or shooting sports. We want to be that support.
As there is a very steady increase in women and youth entering the hunting community, we felt what better way to help support them than to provide a safe, positive environment with hands-on learning. A base so that, once out in the field, they can directly apply a solid foundation of knowledge and confidence.
The great thing about the hunting community is that most people are very welcoming, patient, and helpful. Most are more than willing to take new people out as they want to see the future of the outdoors grow and continue to pass on our hunting heritage and conservation efforts for the generations to come.
It has been an amazing adventure. We have had the pleasure of meeting/helping thousands of like-minded people from across the province and beyond. Many of whom I consider great friends. I can't wait to see what the future holds for us, them, and all of you.
