Event Coordinator? Why, that’s me!

Hello there, long lost blogging world!

I can’t believe I haven’t posted in almost five months!
Life can certainly get busy and change – and quickly, too! Continue reading “Event Coordinator? Why, that’s me!”

Huntresses UNITED!

Are you a blogger who happens to also be a huntress?
Then join the Huntresses United list!

I created the Huntresses United collective so that we as huntresses can meet and support other like-minded outdoors-women and their blogs – there seems to be a lack of huntress/hunter blogging collectives/guilds or a way to find other hunting bloggers.

Huntresses United is a blogging collective of women across the world who share their passion for the outdoors, whether it be wing-shooting, rifle shooting, bow hunting, or angling.”

Click on the link to the Huntresses United info page above (https://texaninsouthafrica.wordpress.com/huntresses-united/) for more information about what being a United Huntress means. :)

Should you wish for your blog to be added to the Huntresses United list, please either comment on this post or on the Huntresses United page with your blog address, or tweet to @vld_safarigirl with #HuntressesUnited.

You don’t have to have a blog dedicated to hunting or the outdoors to be a Huntress United- you just have to have a love for it! ♥

And by all means, once you join in on the list, please display the logo on your blog so that others will be encouraged to join!

I hope to see our little list grow exponentially!
Happy hunting!

 

The Hunting Topic and its Controversy

FaunaFlora (51)

One of my greatest passions is hunting –
and why do I have to be afraid to say that?

I am new to the Twitter-Sphere and I have been trying to learn how to utilize it for our businesses, as well as for personal purposes. There is a Twitter site (do you call it a site?) @AverageHunter and they do a weekly hashtag that is very popular called #TrophyTuesday. I have participated in that hashtag a couple of times, once with a picture of me and my ducks, and once with a picture of me and my Axis Deer.
A few days after the last #TrophyTuesday I did, which happened to be of my ducks, I got a notification. (It’s easy for me to check each one because traffic on my twitter account is quite rare.) It was a notification of someone that had re-tweeted my Axis picture.
I clicked on the account of the re-tweeter and it was @Blueskyemining.
Doesn’t sound like a hate page, right?
As I scrolled through their twitter page, I saw countless re-tweets of hunting, but not in a good sense. One common re-tweet I came across was originally from a man who posted edited pictures of hunting where he included the hunters/huntresses name, work address, and work phone number, encouraging people to get them fired.  I mean… the only appropriate response to that is “What the french toast??”.
Needless to say, I blocked them and deleted my tweet faster than you could say ‘Hot Tamales’. Continue reading “The Hunting Topic and its Controversy”
