I used to aspire to see my image in magazines. Like many other girls I felt that I had something special to offer. And now I’ve realized that I do have something. But it’s not the way I look.
Seeing my name in print above an article that I’ve written is one of the most gratifying feelings I’ve known. The hours of writing, re-writing, editing, adding words, taking those words back out, and proof reading that go into these articles is mind numbing.
But then one day a magazine shows up in my mailbox that I get to scan through until I see my name at the top. An article I wrote about something I believe in, and then I realize that what I have to offer runs deeper than any superficial beauty. My brainpower is one of my greatest gifts, and using it to spread the word about our hunting community is a blessing.
Check out the latest Mule Deer Foundation magazine for my 2nd article from my 3 part series. I’m quite proud of it. And you’ll continue finding my name in that magazine in the future, as I’m doing my best to contribute to this wonderful organization and the conservation efforts of our beloved mule deer, black-tailed deer, and their habitat.
