Washington Regional Director
My name is Jo, born and raised in the Northwest my Dad taught me how to be a outdoor girl. I raised two Sons and they both have grown into fine young men. They also enjoy numerous outdoor sports, hunting, fishing and camping are a few. It is rewarding to be able to share and experience Mother Nature with your own Children, Friends and Family.
Born and raised in the Northwest my Dad instilled the highest ethics of a Huntress. My memory of my first hunt is when I was five. With BB gun in hand, red slicker and boots ready to go out for a special day with Dad. The day was cloudy and drizzly, Dad picked me up and sat me down on a huge stump. I remember being cold and wanting Moms hot chocolate she sent in Dad's thermos. I was very serious about that day but, later in life my Dad told me I was a chatter box and wiggle worm the entire day. He also said it was not even hunting season! It was one of the best days of my life and I would not trade it for anything!
I have traveled and had the opportunity to hunt in other states, Oregon, California, Arizona, Nevada, Wyoming, North and South Dakota, Montana, Idaho, and Alaska. Traveling to Canada for a big bull Moose and Black Bear. Learning to roll with the punches by sleeping in a rustic cabin without facilities for ten days. I have harvested Blacktail, Bench leg, and Mule Deer, Antelope, Elk, Pheasant, Grouse, Chuckar, Rattle Snakes! Over the years I have developed a passion for this sport.
I made my career in the dental field. Practicing Dental Business Administration for over twenty years. I was able to remain with the same Doctor for my career. Now retired, I feel this is the time to share my outdoor skills and help others appreciate and enjoy the great Northwest.
Being a Huntress I have affection and awe for all natures creations, perhaps more so than a non hunter. For the Hunter must learn to read the most subtle signs of habitat and learn the animals behavior to be successful.
