April 15th isn’t just the deadline to file your taxes– it’s also the deadline to enter the 2016 Extreme Huntress Challenge. Now in its seventh year, this one-of-a-kind competition continues to set the bar for serious outdoors women, while at the same time providing positive role models for women who are new to hunting, shooting and other traditional outdoor sports.
Women who wish to enter the competition need to submit a 500-word essay describing why they are the most hardcore Extreme Huntress™. The essay, and up to two low-resolution jpeg photos, must be submitted online by April 15, 2015 at 11:59 pm MST. The online entry form, along with the official competition rules, can be found at www.extremehuntress.com.
A panel of five celebrity judges, including current Extreme Huntress™ Erika Bergmark, Olivia Nalos Opre, Brittany Boddington, Larry Weishuhn and Melissa Bachman, will score the entries to determine the top twenty essays. From May 1 through June 1, 2015, the public will vote online to determine which six women will compete in the head-to-head hunting and outdoor skills competition at the famed 777 Ranch in Hondo, Texas.
The head-to-head competition will test the semi-finalists physical fitness, shooting, tracking, and hunting skills. Tahoe Films, Ltd. will produce thirteen exciting weekly episodes to be aired this fall on ExtremeHuntress.com. Once again, the public will be invited to watch the episodes then vote for their favorite Extreme Huntress™ online or on the Extreme Huntress™ app. Online voting will run from October 1, 2014 through January 1, 2015.
The 2016 Extreme Huntress will have the greatest combined score in the outdoor skills competition, the judges’ scores and the online votes. The Extreme Huntress winner will be announced at the Dallas Safari Club annual convention in January 2016.
Major sponsors of the Extreme Huntress™ Challenge, include the 777 Ranch, Brownells, Dallas Safari Club, Camp Chef and Coppersmith Global Logistics.
About the Extreme Huntress™ Challenge
Now in it’s seventh year, the Extreme Huntress™ Challenge is about preserving our outdoor heritage. Our goal is to create positive role models for all women who want to participate in hunting. With a fifty-percent divorce rate, there are a lot of kids who won’t get into traditional outdoor sports unless mom does. We feel if mom goes hunting, so will her children– and the whole family.
