LWCF Story Challenge Results!
Artemis threw the gauntlet down and you picked it up!
For our LWCF Story Challenge, we asked you to tell a hunting or fishing story that took place on LWCF land. We asked you for a story that would make people stop for a second and see how LWCF – a landmark conservation act – impacts their lives. What we got were stories that moved us – sometimes to tears – about relationships built, lives changed, hearts healed, lessons learned, beauty encountered, and sportswomen empowered on LWCF lands and water from Florida to Alaska. After much deliberation, we have chosen the top three stories. However, we are proud to share all of the stories because each and every one represents an Artemis Sportswomen who has taken action to advocate for her lands, waters, and wildlife. We are humbled, inspired, and grateful. Thank you!
