Hi everyone my name is Cheyenne. I'm new to the forum, but have heard there was questions on why my dad "hoytguy" was here trying to get your votes and why I wasn't on here trying to get your votes myself. Well I am here now! Its been an honor and definitly a dream come true to be just 18 and thought by not just me, but others to be the Most Extreme Huntress of 2014. I'm a young lady who grew up hunting. I eat, sleep, breath and dream hunting! Since I was just a little baby my dad would pack me around everywhere with him out in the field. Now from the looks of me, you would think she probably only does it cause her dad does. Well that's not the case! In my free time I go out and go hunt some bunnies and squirrels and I even take my mum and little sister duck hunting when my dad was away. I clean my own game, pack it out myself and even know how to prep my own animals before the taxidermist (my dad) takes it to the tannery. Now here you hear "taxidermy" and you think she hunts for the trophy. That's not the case, I hunt for the meat not on how big the rack is (even though it doesn't hurt for bragging rights on having the biggest caribou of the year out of your siblings :P ). Now to what makes me extreme: For you alaskans, you see Pioneer Peak? I'd hike to the top of that mountain for a goat with no hesitation. I LIVE for the hunt! The adrenaline I get from stalking closer and closer to a black bear that could kill me, or the exitement of seeing the freshly harvested caribou laying at my feet. The emotions that come out with hunting are intensified for me whether it be excited for the flock of ducks coming into my decoys, or the saddness I feel when the goats we hiked to the top of a mountain in Valdez smelt us and ran to another mountain. But I embrace these emotions simply because I'm out in the woods where I feel at home and I love it.
So help out a fellow Alaskan girl who can only dream of all the opertunites this title could bring me, unlike the other contestants who have deep connections into the hunting industry and shooting an african animal is just another thing to them. All that is a dream to me! So cast your vote at www.extremehuntress.com/vote and you can also go to their facebookpage and vote from there as well. Only one vote per email so if your one of those people with 5, use em up! You have untill midnight of June 15th to cast your vote.
Thank You for reading, Cheyenne
