Get ready for some intense sporting action as the Extreme Huntress Competition finalists battle it out in this first-of-its-kind, on-camera, head-to-head outdoor skills and hunting competition. The first of eleven episodes of Extreme Huntress goes online this Sunday Oct. 6th. Now it’s your turn to be part of the action. Watch the episodes and afterwards, you can vote for who you think should be awarded the title of the 5th Annual Extreme Huntress.
Visit www.ExtremeHuntress.com every week from now through the holidays for a brand new episode of Extreme Huntress presented by Brownells. Each episode is just 10-12 minutes in length, perfectly suited to be watched at home, as well as on mobile devices. Online voting began Oct. 1 and will continue through Jan. 1, 2014.
The four finalists in the contest are Mindy Arthur of Peoria, AZ, Candace Crick of Chandler, OK, Cheyenne Dahlberg of Palmer, AK, and Amanda Lowery of Sandpoint, ID. This past July, these four women traveled to the acclaimed 777 Ranch in Hondo, Texas, where they embarked on a competition unlike any other.
“No one has done this before,” stated Tom Opre, contest organizer and owner of Tahoe Films, Ltd.. “This is the first time women have both competed in outdoor skills and hunted head-to-head in front of a camera. This was not easy hunting. It’s intense, hard core action.”
Watch as Larry Weishuhn and Olivia Nalos Opre host the women in technical events, such as long range shooting, field trophy scoring, Jeff Rann’s Dangerous Game Shooting Course and an exhilarating biathlon in the hot Texas sun. The women then hunt a variety of exotic game species at the renowned 777 Ranch, including trophy black buck, Axis deer, Audad sheep and Iranian red sheep.
Extreme Huntress host, Olivia Nalos, stressed that although a little friendly competition kept the head-to-head competition at the 777 Ranch exciting, the main goal of the Extreme Huntress Contest is to promote and preserve the outdoor heritage. “Positive female role models are an integral part of getting more kids into hunting and other traditional outdoor sports. If mom hunts, so will her kids.”
The Grand Prize winner will be determined through a combination of the judges’ scores and the online votes: 30% outdoor skills competition, 40% judges’ score, and 30% public online voting.
Similar to years past, the the Extreme Huntress winner will be announced at a gala event. This year, it will be at an award dinner at the 2014 Dallas Safari Club Annual Convention.
Women who wish to enter next year’s contest will need to submit a 500 word, or less, essay and up to two images, at ExtremeHuntress.com, no later April 1, 2014.
