I was raised on a cattle farm in West Tennessee. We are a simple family, who believe in hard work, dedication, and a strong faith in Christ. I learned to respect the land when hunting and fishing, and to be happy with what you have. I have always had a love for the outdoors, because some of the best memories I have from childhood were made outside in God’s Creation. Whether it be fishing with my Granddad, climbing trees, or even working on the farm, I just loved being out there. As the years have passed, I have gained more and more interests in outdoor activities like shooting guns and riding motorcycles.
When I met my husband, Daniel, I really got into the hunting lifestyle. He is also an avid hunter, so we own and shoot a variety of guns. He has also taught me about archery. Which I love, and have now set my own goals to reach. With persistence and practice, I have managed to achieve many of the goals that I set for myself.
I created Doe Range in early summer of 2016. I love having the ability to share the love of the outdoors from a female perspective. I have gained so much knowledge and understanding through my own experiences and achievements. I have had failures as well as success, but I thank God for the opportunity to do it all. Each instance has been a moment to learn something new. I have filled many tags in the past and I look forward to filling more in the future, especially while on this journey with Doe Diaries. I persevere in my pursuits, even after many failed attempts; I have never given up.
Keep striving for your goals and dreams, because that’s how you succeed in anything in this life. I live by a Bible verse, Galatians 6:9 reads, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we don’t give up”. I have based my life on those southern morals and values. ‘Neighbor helping neighbor’ as it’s written in the Word. God is my guide as I go out and hunt, while never taking for granted what he provides for us.
