During this podcast, you will be exposed to a unique opportunity we have the privilege of being apart. The 5th annual One Shot Hunt in Virginia hosted by the Virginia Wildlife Foundation. This event that is open to the public has many purposes, two of the biggest include fundraising as well as hunter recruitment. The event brings the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, landowners, turkey hunting guides, and sponsored hunters all together for a weekend of networking and turkey hunting.
We speak with the Executive Director of the Virginia Wildlife Foundation, Jenny West to get her perspective on the event as well as the future of our hunting heritage. Jenny is enthusiastic and encouraged by recent events and the direction of the hunting culture, especially in Virginia. We also catch up with Ashton Dye, who was a volunteer guide for the event. His role over the past 5 years has been to help facilitate new hunters with outdoor experiences. Lastly, we chat with Caroline Hollandsworth, a new hunter! This event was the first time she took to the woods after any game species. She shares her story and how being a new hunter can be intimidating as well as exciting.
Be sure to catch these stories! We hope you find this podcast engaging and encouraging knowing state agencies are working to promote hunting and joining landowners with new hunters. Enjoy.Learn.Share! #ForLoveoftheLand
