To some hunting is a hobby, but for me it is a passion.  I love hunting whether it is by myself or with my husband and family. I hunt as often as I can, and a few times a year I go on an all ladies BBB hunt to feed my soul.  The women I have met through my time hunting on the BBB trips have become like family to me.  Learning new things from like minded women has been amazing.  Not once have I felt like I couldn't accomplish filling a tag while hunting with these great ladies.  My first hunt with the BBB was a duck hunt in Arkansas.   I had never duck hunted before and never even shot a shot gun.  The minute I pulled into the lodge I knew I was in good hands.  Victoria was in the kitchen making chili super for everyone.  I shared a room with two sister's who hunted together.  And we became friends quickly.  Its like a hunting slumber party.  After a great first meal together and some time around the camp fire I was comfortable and settled in for the night.  Our first day out in a blind required walking in waist deep water in waders.  I will never forget watching the sun come up and the decoy spread lighting up with rays of sun through the trees.  And just in time it started raining ducks.  For three hours straight we shot until we ran out of shells and had six limits.  Fast forward a few years later and now I realize that was an amazing day in the duck blind that spoiled me just a little.  I have learned so much from hunting with my sisters in the outdoors.  The momments we share and the experience of the friendships are the true trophies.   There may not always be ducks but you can be sure there are fun times in the duck blind with the Sisterhood of the Outdoors.  Book a hunt with BBB!  www.babesbulletsandbroadheads.com.   

Usually people don’t associate New Jersey with the Outdoors. Being an avid outdoorswoman I know that is not the case. I wanted to show my sisters of Babes, Bullets and Broadheads a great time by booking an off-shore shark/tuna trip. I was so excited and I had girls from all over the country drive and fly in for this awesome trip. I picked up the ladies from the airport and made room at my house for them. We got up early in the morning and got on the road. It was about an hour drive to the dock in Pt Pleasant, NJ. Once we arrive we were surprised to find 6 guys on the boat that we had booked. They said they were booked for the same day and they were not willing to give up their trip. I tried to call the Captain, he would not return my calls or my texts. The Captain called the mate and told him his truck broke down and to shut the boat up, no one was going out. I was devastated. I put a deposit down and had 5 ladies who traveled far to go on this trip. We all frantically made phone calls to try to book another trip. Most charters were booked and we did not want to go on a party boat. I called a boat called Jersey Hooker Charters from Pt Pleasant and spoke to Captain Rich. He told me it was his day off, but he would be willing to come in and try to salvage our day. He said we could do some fluke fishing. The girls really wanted to go off-shore fishing, but fluke was better than nothing. Captain Rich called in his friend Captain George, who was already on a boat fishing. They both arrived about 45 minutes later and Captain Rich told us he would take us off-shore for tuna. We could barely contain or excitement, what a rollercoaster ride the day had become. The weather was great and the trip off-shore was beautiful. Once we got off-shore the fishing was slow, but Captain Rich and George tried everything they could to get us on fish. We were supposed to head back in at 4, but the fishing turned on late, so they kept us out there until we caught our limit. Capt George was great to us, he had so much patience and he helped us reel in the fish! I can’t say enough about Captain Rich with Jersey Hooker Charters. Taking his day off to make sure we had a great experience. I will be booking another ladies trip with Jersey Hooker Charters!   To book a great trip with them visit www.jerseyhookercharters.com!  Tell them the ladies of Babes, Bullets and Broadheads sent you!

I have had the pleasure of going on two trips with Carl and his crew at Boulder Basin Outfitters.  And I am planning my third trip at this moment   If I had the time and the money I would go every year.  I am from the south but I have been blessed to spend time in the west many years with my family and friends.  I know what the Rocky Mountians are like all year long.  I have camped in the Black Hills and Yellow Stone area several times.  I know these areas are fun but unforgiving if you are not prepared when you take the trail less traveled and get off the grid.  That's where having an outfitter like Boulder Basin Outfitters can get you to places you never dreamed you could go.  And do it safely. 

Where My Danner’s Take Me……..

I am an avid hunter and outdoors kind of girl. Over the years I have worn out many boots for all types of hunting. Last season, I took a trip of a lifetime to elk hunt with my father in Meeker Colorado. Part of my preparation for this trip included having the right gear, most importantly the right footwear. After having years of disappointing and painful issues with other brands including some major store brands I chose Danner.

Are you interested in hunting or already a rifle hunter and thought to yourself that you really would like to try hunting with a bow? That was the scenario for me. I started hunting with a rifle and really enjoyed everything about it. Then I decided that archery looked pretty interesting and I had always heard that it is more "challenging" than hunting with a gun. But how do you get into archery when you might not know anything about it or know anyone who can help you. What do you do? I want to try to help out with that.

Our staff are not just pretty ladies who wear our logo and look good in photos.  The ladies on our field staff are all outstanding women who are dedicated to our mission to encourage women and youth in the outdoors. There are many reasons these ladies feel passionate about what we do at BBB.  Most of all, we are true hunters and outdoor enthusiast.   We live it every day all year long.  We don't measure success by the size of our trophies, we measure success in the memories we make afield with family and friends.  Each year the ladies of BBB participate in all kinds of outdoor events in their home states.  We mentor youth and take our own kids hunting.  Some of us give back by teaching seminars at many of the large sporting goods retailers, teaching NRA shooting classes, volunteering to manage 3D bow shoots and participating in youth shoots, and much more.  We call ourselves The Sisterhood of the Outdoors for a reason.  These ladies are a always there for one another to encourage each other and share in the joys of our hunting journeys.  When we get a chance to hold a staff hunt we become like family; sisters, hence the sisterhood. Most of our staff have been on one or more of our hunting trips with outfitters.  We make sure there is a staff member to host each of our hunts to ensure our guest have a great time.  These staff members are there for our guest from start to finish and will mentor new hunters from shooting to gutting and game prep.  You won't be let down by these ladies, they are some of the hardest working, fun loving hunters you will ever meet.  We have very high standards at BBB for our field staff.  We do it because it means something to us to give back to others, not because of what BBB may give us in return.  The return is seeing new hunters find success and joy in doing what we love most- HUNTING!  We are THE SISTERHOOD OF THE OUTDOORS. 

There are many different ways to prepare your wild game meat.  As a home-made diet in my house, it is all I serve.  I live at home wtih my boyfriend and work full time; so these meals can be prepared easliy on a weeknight after a long day.  My inspiration in my dishes comes from workng in restaurants almost my whle life and watching the Food Network  I do not follow recipes and I make them up as I go.  Enjoy them and I would hope to hear feedback on any of these some-what different take on my entrees.  Only sharing some of my favorites. 

We all know they call it hunting for a reason.  The animals don't always coopertate.  I live by the rule that the more you go hunting the more the chances are you will find sucess.  I also take advice from my hunting friends and family.  Hunting is a learn as you go sport.  The more people I meet and hunt with, the more I learn what they may do to improve thier chances at bagging a big one.  I try to wear the right clothing, be as quiet as possible, and scent free when I can but sometimes you just have to hunt the wind.  And when all of those tactics fail me, I bring out the DOTS!  Yep you heard me right, DOTS candy.  It's also a Babes, Bullets and Broadhead tradition.  Take a box of DOTS and you will bag bigger bucks.  I hope my sisters won't be upset with me for letting out our secret.  Next time you plan your big hunt, pack some DOTS!  Let us know if it works for you. 

Part of the mission of Babes, Bullets and Broadheads is to create opportunites for women to learn to hunt.  Each of our hunting trips is hosted by one of our experienced Field Staff members.  When booking a trip with us, you will be invited to a private group page on Facebook where you will meet your fellow hunters.  This creates an open formum to discuss the up and coming trip and ask any questions before you go.  Having the group page to find out details and meet other guest on the trip makes everyone feel comfortable and most important prepared for the hunt.  Our outfitters also assit with this page and add directions, pack list and license and tag informations.  We want all of our hunters to be as prepared as possbible and ready to be succesul.  The host of each hunt, along with our outfiiters are available to team up with new hunters and actually hunt with them during the trip.  Many of our staff are skilled enough to guide our guest and coach them along the way.  We put a lot of effort into making our experinces once in a lifetime trips.  We want all of our guest to TAG OUT!  Join us on a hunt and experience The Sisterhood of the Outdoors.

This is the hunting story that I will be telling my grandkids one day.  I was with Boulder Basin Outfitters last fall on a cow elk pack trip.  I knew I was going into grizzly bear country but I also knew I was with professional outfitters who hunted this area for generations without incident.  I like to prepare for my hunts, I worked out, packed light and read all I could about what to do if you encounter a grizzly bear.  I purchased the required bear spray and kept it in my pocket close at reach at all times.  I even slept with it on my cot in my tent.
