Hunt Like a Girl
It’s no secret that women are the fastest-growing demographic in the hunting community. While the outdoors industry is making strides in creating new products for women and including female “influencers” in their marketing efforts, Shoot Like a Girl (SLG) is going a step further to actively bring more women into the hunting community. In fact, SLG’s sole mission is to empower women to participate in the shooting sports with confidence. Now Beretta USA is partnering with SLG to bring that mission to life via a spinoff program called Hunt Like a Girl.
"I’ve been hunting my entire life, but it wasn’t until I went on this trip that I realized just how out of place some women feel in the hunting community. Waterfowl hunting in particular can be intimidating due to the technical aspects of shooting, calling, identifying birds, setting decoys, etc. If you don’t grow up immersed in the sport or have the right mentor, there are times when a duck blind can seem like a very unwelcoming place ... Don’t get me wrong. I love hunting with men, but it’s nice to take a break from the 'bro culture' sometimes. My experience at Hunt Like a Girl empowered me to embrace my role as a waterfowler and a mentor, and to champion female involvement in all aspects of the sport. Many of the women who attend events like this find a community of likeminded hunters, which they can relate to and rely on in the future." - Mallori Murphey, DU's social media specialist
