Who is Artemis? The group’s genesis story is rooted in a pack of women who sought to elevate the voice of female sportswomen and conservationists. Turns out, it’s a mission a lot of people are interested in. On this episode, hear bow hunter and conservationist Jess Johnson dish on what kind of earrings make a legislator pay attention to you (brass, everyone…big ‘ol rifle brass), what’s on deck for the Artemis Ambassadors program, and why this work matters.
