FACTS ABOUT MARIA!
 

I started shooting archery when I was about six years old
in a little archery shop in Depew, NY called Leo’s Archery.

I became quite good at archery and started competing locally,
regionally and then on to state and national competitions.
I won multiple matches and shoots.

I have a psychology degree and I went to nursing school.

Silly, I know, but I am afraid of cows!

My grandpa Jerry was my biggest supporter in EVERYTHING I did
and the best male role model I had growing up!
He passed away from Alzheimer’s and Breast Cancer on 2/12/12.

I am obsessed with coffee.

Two of my daughters have shot bigger deer than me!
Dakota’s was a 171″ and McKenzie’s was 169″, both shot with a muzzleloader, 50 gr of powder.
McKenzie was honored with a 3 page spread in the October 2008 issue of the
North American Whitetail Magazine.

Cooking With Candice

This post features a recipe I completely botched the first time I attempted to cook it for the DTK team. So consider this somewhat of a virtual redemption meal, ladies. To all of you who didn’t get to witness my chili here’s a tip: Can Cookers require a lot more water than you would guess.
So, if you have more than one Turkey hunter in your house, like we do, the meat from these flying foul can start to add up. Take those turkey breasts out of the freezer and try something new!

My greatest desire in this world begins and ends with a quality lifestyle not only for my family and myself, but I hope that in my journey through this crazy life, that I can inspire hope in others to do the same. I think that we all can agree and learn to understand that our days on this earth are numbered, therefore it is up to us to learn and sometimes fight for a meaningful life of value. I believe that value comes from your roots; It’s who you are, it’s what you believe in and it’s the purpose driving you to be the absolute best version of yourself.

The Pink Camo Debate

1270739_417417225026777_449709278_o

From birth, and even before birth, colors have differentiated the male and female genders. Baby boy showers are expected to be riddled with the color blue and a baby girl’s with the color pink. As we enter our adolescent stages of life, the color assigned to us transcends into the clothing we wear, the paint choice for our bedroom walls, the decorations on our birthday cakes and even to the polish we put on our finger nails. When we grow older, this color either becomes a preference to some or an irritation to others. So, how do we generally feel about this new pink camo craze for female hunters?
