Last time we spoke with Sharenda, we heard about how she got into shooting and reloading. This week, we get an update on where she's at in her journey being a hunter and angler. She's been dove-hunting and tying her own flies... AND, she's bringing other women along on the journey through a program called WildHERness. Becoming a hunter can feel like a long process. Sharenda breaks down her journey into simple steps, sometimes as concrete as "Next thing: buy tent."
