Britt Longoria’s education and career journey took her to Africa, where she had the opportunity to experience an incredible landscape and its animals. At home in Texas, Longoria is still a hunter - and her passion is exploring how the hunting community can tell stories that share with the world the emotion, the adventure, and the “why” of our journey as hunters.
