Laramie, WY -(AmmoLand.com)- Mia Anstine will be a media guest at the 2016 Wyoming Women's Antelope Hunt.
She is a big-game guide, mentor, instructor, writer, and the first American woman to be featured on the cover of Field & Stream magazine.
Remington Arms Company is supporting her trip to the Wyoming Women's Antelope Hunt, and she will be hunting with a Remington model 700. The hunt will be held Oct. 6-9, 2016 and will bring together 40 female hunters from across the nation at the Ranch at Ucross in northeast Wyoming for a weekend of hunting, mentorship, and camaraderie, as well as raising funds and awareness for the Wyoming Women's Foundation.
Anstine is co-owner of Wolf Creek Outfitters, where she guides hunts for elk, mule deer, black bear or Merriam's turkeys. She sits on the Colorado Sportsmen's Roundtable and is the secretary of her local Safari Club International chapter. She has a lifelong commitment to wildlife conservation, hunting ethics, habitat, and preservation.
Anstine loves exploring, learning and sharing the modern day Wild West. She inspires others to get outside, hunting, shooting, or come together around the table, savoring all life has to offer. She's hunted around the world, pursuing moose, brown bear, red stag, bull tahr, elk, mule deer, black bear, turkey, game birds, waterfowl, predators, varmints, hogs, carp and has more on her bucket list. Above all, she takes pride in guiding ladies and children for their first hunts. To learn more, visit www.MiaAnstine.com.

So far the annual event has raised more than $200,000 for grants and special projects to help women and girls across Wyoming. Special guest hunters have included retired Wyoming Supreme Court Justice Marilyn Kite, Wyoming State Superintendent Jillian Balow, Jana Waller from “Skull Bound TV” on the Sportsman Channel, Women's Outdoor News (WON) Editor Barbara Baird, 2013 Ms. Wheelchair USA Ashlee Lundvall, and Julie Golob, captain of Smith & Wesson's highly successful shooting team.
Of the 40 total hunters in 2015, 36 harvested antelope, 11 for the first time.
