Welcome to BowKrazy with Jackie!!!
I’m a lil’ southern country girl from Louisiana. My introduction to hunting came at a young age, when my brother would stick me in a blind while duck hunting. Once I learned how to shoot a shotgun I became hooked. My brother and I would hunt before school and in the evenings. I soon learned that this was just the beginning and it was the best freedom I could ever experience.
Over the years my love for hunting matured and the excitement became so unbearable that after college I uprooted myself and decided to move to the Rocky Mountains to have more of an opportunity to hunt big game animals with rifles and archery as well.
I can only try to create for you the heart thumping feeling that generates deep down inside of me when the start of hunting season arises. At first glance I don’t appear to be the average female hunter; my physique is pretty tiny but I have underlying strength that comes from my love of hunting.
I am overcome with sensations that I could never have imagined when I begin hunting season and especially when I pick up a bow. I started to have a burning desire during hunting season. It is a feeling of the raw outdoors that can sometimes be overwhelming. My teeth chatter with adrenalin, my hands shake with anxiety and my smile overlays my face while hunting any game. Before any hunting excursions, I have to bring crackers and a soda because my nerves are so excited that it makes me sick to my stomach. It is an uncontrollable feeling that I have never felt in my life. I have to remind myself to breathe and remain calm so I don’t pass out or hyperventilate. It has become such an obsession that my whole life revolves around hunting.
Hunting and fishing makes me so happy and I am truly passionate about every moment I get to be in the outdoors. I hope to teach woman and children that you have to not be afraid to try something new and to do what your heart tells you to. I want to show woman and children that anyone can have a passion in something that they love know matter what the sport is. The most important is to be happy in life. I want to show each of you that staying positive and keeping your confidence and chin up will always help you accomplish your dreams. I want people to know that you can do anything that you want in your life; you just have to believe and take that extra step.
I live for thrill of the outdoors. When I see wild game fly by or run by all I can think is “Mmm that would make good gravy”
