Cindy Barlow is the sixth female hunting outfitter to be licensed in the state of Wyoming. When she's not guiding trips for her business, Antelope Creek Outfitters, Cindy is introducing her grandkids to the outdoors, staying active in local politics, and polishing her skills as a craftswoman by sewing hides. Cindy joins Artemis this week to tell stories about what it was like raising her family in the outdoors, from the time her own kids treed a cougar with their dog Little Ann, to the time her grandson told her, "Grandma can't catch Nemo;" Cindy's life has been robust with new challenges and deep connections. We're thrilled to have her on the program.
