As sportswomen and conservationists, we do more than hunt and fish. The complete sportswoman can skin a deer, land a burly bass, navigate in the wild, and she knows her game commissioners and politicians, knows wildlife laws, defends all wildlife, advocates on their behalf, and teaches others these skills. Artemis embodies the definition of the complete sportswoman and sees it as our duty to use our platform to promote and teach this philosophy. Welcome to our team of complete sportswomen!

Write a love note to public lands!
Mary Jo Brooks publishes these short notes here and would love to publish a note from each of you.
Marcia and Ashley have both written one and it’s a low stakes way to dip your toes in the water of advocating for the existence and importance of public lands and waters.
