A hunting article in WHAT magazine?!

I just got my monthly NWTF newsletter and in it, they mention that the magazine started by Oprah Winfrey, O Magazine, includes an article written by a young woman going on her first wild turkey hunt. Below is a link to the online article...

I am taking the time to register on that site, so I can comment on hunting and the growing role of women hunters. I was initially very surprised to see Oprah allowing this article to be printed in her magazine, but then I got to thinking about it a little more. Oprah is a VERY smart lady, who has become quite wealthy and influential by understanding modern women...she is not going to ignore the trend of more female hunters going afield each year. I am reluctant to applaud her decision to publish the article, because I don't know what her personal feelings really are, but it is encouraging to see a mainstream magazine, outside of the hunting industry, recognizing the positive and growing influence of hunting on women in this country.

my wife has been a bow hunter(for deer) ever since she was 14(minimum legal age in new york to bow hunt). she has given me many many pointers on shooting a bow. actually, i have to give her the thanks for me even being able to shoot a bow with any kind of accuracy. the group i hunt with includes 3 women, and surprisingly they all either shoot muzzle loaders or shotguns. i think its a great thing that women are getting more involved in hunting. that way the only argument over me going out hunting is which stand to sit in. instead of "why are you always out hunting?"
