Multi-time world shooting champion, hunter and author Julie Golob has accepted an invitation to participate in the inaugural Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt, held Oct. 3-6, 2013. Hosted and organized by the Wyoming Women’s Foundation, the event will provide guided antelope hunting for 50 women.
“Hunting provides so much opportunity, from learning about the outdoors, safety and responsibility, to being able to provide food for the table. It’s not just for the guys either, and I am especially excited to share my passion for hunting with other women,” Golob said. “It’s such an honor to be invited to the first Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt. Add to it that this antelope hunt’s ultimate goal is to raise funds for the Wyoming Women’s Foundation only makes it all the more special.”
Golob is one of the most accomplished professional shooters in the world, having won more than 120 championship titles in international, national and regional marksmanship competitions. In addition, Golob is a veteran of the elite U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit and was named both U.S. Army Female Athlete of the Year and AMU Athlete of the Year.
In 2012 Julie authored her first book, SHOOT: Your Guide to Shooting and Competition, which is a valuable resource for new and experienced shooters.
An avid hunter, Golob is a member of the Prois Hunting Apparel Pro Staff. She also enjoys wild game cooking and sharing her recipes.
The Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt will take place at the historic Ucross Ranch in northeast Wyoming. The event will host women hunters of all experience levels, and the emphasis will be on safe and responsible hunting.
Monies raised by the weekend hunt will support the mission of the Wyoming Women’s Foundation, which is to invest in the economic, self-sufficiency of women and the future of girls.
