Mia Anstine Featured in Empowering Book About Women Hunters

Mia Anstine of Pagosa Springs, Colorado is among 18 individual female hunters across the country profiled in a revealing new book called Why Women Hunt. The book is the first of its kind by Author and hunter K. J. Houtman.

Anstine is a hunting guide and instructor in archery, firearms, and other outdoor-related skills: “Sitting in a tree stand is tough for me personally, more than climbing from 9,000 to 13,000 feet, but I’ve taken bears, whitetail and other game animals from just sitting. I love it all. Each has its own purpose—you can learn from one method of hunting to help in another.”

Mia told the author that she wishes non-hunters understood hunting better and that’s part of the reason she took to being a hunter education instructor, “… the burden is on us to help them understand. I wish they’d take a hunter education class, even if they weren’t going to hunt. Sometimes we don’t get anything after a long day. It’s not always easy and it is never guaranteed. Some people don’t know and some have a misconception fostered from watching hunting TV shows. We need to demonstrate how we achieve healthy wildlife herds and how we affect animals in a positive way through hunting.”

Houtman of Minnesota takes an intimate look at the lives of these intrepid outdoor women—of all ages, professions, education and cultural backgrounds. Their diverse personal stories explore what motivates them to connect—spiritually and physically—with the natural world in one of humankind’s most ancient food-gathering rituals.

Yes, I Hunt – Read With Me

UPDATE – Oct. 13, 2018
I cannot suggest this book as I’m listed as “endorsing” it prior to ever reading the book or any part of it. There are actions that specifically violate the safety rules, which I teach in my hunter ed and firearms courses. Additionally, unethical means of take listed in the stories and in the tips. I will not further review the book.

I read a book last week at hunting camp. Yes, I read a lot of books and have an ever growing list of books to read. Friends suggest them all the time. I buy them and read them in no particular order. However, I purchased ‘Yes, I Hunt’ as soon as it became available on Amazon. I met the author, Dawn V. Obrecht, MD at a Babes with Bullets camp in Steamboat Springs many years ago.

Dawn was curious about hunting, polite and asked a lot of questions. I learned that she’s a former emergency room doctor who consults in addiction medicine. She was also, at the time, a vegetarian that met a man who piqued her curiosity about hunting. Now she’s written a book about her journey into hunting and the adventures she’s had along the way.

MAC Q&A Day (2)

I’ve heard from Dawn off and on since the women’s shooting camp. A time or two she told me she was writing a book. More recently she asked if I had a recipe or two that I might share with her to put in the book. I happily obliged as I’m so proud of her.

Now, I have her book in hand and plan to give it a read. If you’d also like to read, you can click the image above or click and order the book here – Yes, I Hunt. I’m not endorsed by Dawn or her publisher, but the link is my Amazon affiliate. I think it’ll be interesting to get into the mind of a former vegan, hunter, and the journey she’s taken. I look forward to your thoughts, discussion and reaction.

Cheers,

Mia
