One Arrow at a Time, by Candace Crick Extreme Huntress Nominee

Rate this Entry
Iím Candace Crick, mother of 5 boys, married to my best friend, hunter, competitive archer, angler, as well as field producer & pro-staff for OkieWild TV. Archery hunting is my biggest endeavor. I have been known to fling arrows from roof tops & ladders, practicing the real elevation scenario presented from the old mighty tree stand. I am highly active in local & national archery competitions with my family. In 2012, my husband & I, were the 1st 4H certified archery instructors since the 1980s. I have begun my pursuit towards the North American Grand Slam exclusively stick & string. Archery is my fire! I live it, love it, & breathe it!

I was once told by a man, women belong in their womenís clubs back home, not at deer camp. Who was he to deem what club I should join? I am in no way bitter but highly motivated by this man. I found there are all kinds of womenís hunting clubs, and even banquets. I am involved in our local NWTF, Camo & Pearls event. I aspire to make this event grow in mass numbers. We are here to support each other; we are the vitality that will make this dream a reality. There are so many of us in todayís society affixed on winning gold for themselves, or bragging about the ďBoonerĒ on their wall, confined with dark walls of self-greed. It is my goal to be devoted to sharing my love and passion of archery and hunting, even if I have to share all my secrets.

In just a short amount of time of becoming an outdoor enthusiast I experienced my fair share of losses, as well as success stories. Itís called hunting for a reason, if we are all rewarded each time we went out then what would be our drive? In 2011, I harvested my first traditional archery harvest, a 250 lb. wild boar. I have camped in the mountains of Idaho, harvesting a cinnamon color phase Black Bear with my compound. I have been one with nature and the Grizzlies in the deep bush of Alaska for 14 solid days & nights; harvesting my first Yukon Moose. I learned the art of fly fishing, by catch and release only, and have had the opportunity to fish the sea for Halibut, the fish with 2 eyes on one side. I have eaten Yellow-fin Tuna hearts for the simple tradition of fishermanís luck. I have driven to the furthest tip of Northern Quebec, on a DIY Caribou hunt, blessed with opportunity to witness the migration at hands length. Something I feel must be experienced in person.

All things are possible in life no matter what we may deem unconquerable, whether itís accomplishing shooting a bow, or the finesse of fly fishing. Sometimes we just need a helping hand and open heart. I aim to inspire women to embrace the outdoor lifestyle & play active roles in the outdoor community. I am, Candace Crick, the Extreme Huntress, pursuing my dreams one arrow at a time. I am unconquerable!

    I would certainly like to hear more about your DIY Caribou hunt and fishing adventures. Perhaps another blog.
