Extreme Huntress Contestant – Jeana Mitchell
The Extreme Huntress™ Competition is about preserving our outdoor heritage. Our goal is to create positive role models for women who want to participate in hunting.
Jeana: Jeana: I was 40. Yeah. So it was only seven years ago and so I was older than a lot of people but I guess younger than some people, too.
So you’re never too old to learn something new and if you’re passionate about it, you can become proficient.
Bruce: Let’s talk about any barriers that you had to get through, and this is for our listeners to hear what a lady 40 years old, married, husband loves to hunt and is investing time.
So let’s talk about how your husband taught you or allowed you to embrace the outdoors and embrace hunting and embrace harvesting game, killing game.

They were both in high school so I didn’t have to worry about staying at home with them or finding baby sitters so we had the time to go out.
They were at the age to where they could take care of themselves so I had the time to go out and I know that that’s a problem for a lot of both men and women because in today’s world, there are a lot of single men out there that are raising children as well as single women. So that was on our side.
He just taught me that if I wanted to do it, all I had to do was put my mind to it. He had extraordinary patience with me.
I was not the easiest person to teach because I am very strong willed and hard headed and I love him for taking the time with me.
