About Mia

mission-statementI’m happy you stopped by. I live on a ranch, which I call the Funny Farm, in the mountains of beautiful Southwest Colorado.

I am a mentor to many. I created this website, my videos, podcasts, and social media outlets to inspire YOU to get outside, hunt, fish, shoot, and survive life with others in a positive way. I am a certified firearms and archery instructor as well as hunter education instructor. I strive to preserve our constitutional rights with a focus on freedom of religion and the right to bear arms. I also work to continue traditions passed down from generations before with an emphasis on conservation.

I am the first American woman, and of Latin descent, featured on the cover of Field & Stream magazine. Alongside 10 other women featured, we are “boots-on-the-ground” everyday women representatives of the many women who are making a difference in the outdoor and hunting industry.

I’m currently serving my second term on the Colorado Sportsman’s Roundtable committee. I’m a current board member of my local SCI chapter. I’m a board member of the Professional Outdoor Media Association. I’m a lifetime NRA member, and a member of and support many conservation organizations.

I’m a freelance writer, podcast host, and guest at a variety of shows and publications, plus she’s a hunting guide.

I grew up in a small town in Colorado where my great-grandfather used to visit for annual hunting trips. My family moved there when I was a toddler. My father hunted to put food on the table and my mom grew a garden and taught me how to fish. I’ve pursued wild animals around the world and guide hunts in southwest Colorado and northern New Mexico for elk, mule deer, black bear, and Merriam’s turkey.
