City Roots to Hunting Boots blogger Kristen Schmitt spent the last year immersing herself in the world of archery and hunting and now she wants to inspire other women to do the same. Her new DVD, Beginner’s Guide to Archery: For Women, features instructional segments on archery lessons, finding a bow that fits your body, practicing and the locavore movement, all developed specifically with women in mind.
The DVD is available now at this link.
“I’m really excited to see the final product and share it with anyone else who is curious to try,” Schmitt said. “If I can do this, anyone can, and the confidence gained in learning archery has affected other areas of my life — all for the better.”
Beginner’s Guide to Archery: For Women, Schmitt’s new DVD, is an extension of her Deer & Deer Hunting Blog chronicling her transition from Detroit to the Green Mountains in Vermont and includes the lessons learned from her personal journey from career woman to huntress. The content guides viewers through every aspect of getting started in hunting, starting with acquiring a bow and ending with a fresh, sustainable meal from a successful hunt.
For anyone considering taking up hunting as a sport or food source, Beginner’s Guide to Archery: For Women is a starting point offering the tools needed to get on the right track.
Viewers will follow Schmitt as she visits a local hunting shop to witness the process of building a bow and then learn the importance of having a custom-fitted bow. Watch as she experiences her first archery lesson and continues practicing at home.
Beginner’s Guide to Archery: For Women covers equipment, scent control, gear to consider purchasing for tree stands and more, everything a first-time hunter would need to get started and feel empowered and confident in the field. Plus, as a masters of science in sustainable food systems candidate, Schmitt shares her unique perspective on the rise of locavore culture and why wild, local food is beneficial for the health of everyone.
“This is the perfect gift for the woman in your life, and the very best way to get her started down the right path to becoming a bowhunter,” says Deer & Deer Hunting editor Gordy Krahn. “Kristen Schmitt is a city girl turned country, and after picking up a bow has never looked back, and her new DVD is tailor-made for women who want to get into the archery game but haven’t a clue where to start.”
