The October event brings women from across the nation together at the Ranch at Ucross in northeast Wyoming for a weekend of hunting, mentorship and camaraderie. It also raises funds and awareness for the Wyoming Women’s Foundation (WYWF).
Waller, who has been a hunter for three decades, promotes women in the outdoors and the undeniable relationship between hunters and conservation. Her show “Skull Bound TV” on the Sportsman Channel highlights Waller’s passion for the outdoors, as well as the intricate skull art she creates. Waller plans to feature her experience at the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt as an episode of the show.
“I am so excited to be a guest! There's nothing more inspiring than surrounding yourself with like-minded women who have a passion for the great outdoors and hunting!” Waller says. “There's something magical about the wide open prairies of Wyoming, and coupled with campfire stories from dozens of women, it's bound to be a wonderful adventure. I'm honored to be a part of this year's exciting event.”
2015 will be the third year WYWF has hosted the all-women’s hunt. The event helps raise awareness about the nonprofit organization’s mission – to help women achieve economic self-sufficiency.
“What an honor it is to have Jana join us for the hunt this year!” says Shelley Simonton, WYWF board chair, and two-time hunter at the event herself. “The other women hunters will certainly appreciate her knowledge, experience, passion and advice.”
The Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt will be Oct. 8-11 at the Ranch at Ucross, 17 miles outside of Buffalo. The event provides training on all aspects of hunting, from harvesting to processing. For more information visit www.WyomingWomensAntelopeHunt.org or call 307.721.7007.
