Nicole McClain: Diva, Deer Hunter, Dynamo


Picture 12 of 12

Nicole McClain is not only a multi-talented actress, model and health and wellness expert, but she is also a three-season whitetail hunter.

Much like a chameleon altering its appearance to adapt to an ever changing environment, do not be fooled by this huntress’ wearing of pink. This is not indicative of any naivety of hunting, but rather, a testament to Nicole’s ability to fight a war on two fronts; That of being a female hunter and that of being a cancer survivor… and look closely, because she’s got the scars to prove it.

“Does anyone read the Bible anymore? ‘Do not judge, that you be not judged… With what measure you measure, it shall be measured to you.’

"I don’t want to break any judgmental hearts out there eager to launch snide remarks, but I’m my own worst critic. I’m so hard on myself I whup my own ass twice a week. I’ve been toe-to-toe with God, cancer, death, and a few school bullies who had more insecurities about themselves than I have time to chat about.

Superficial judgement will be the last thing to sink my ship. Here’s what it boils down to: I know me and the truths of my failures and flaws, and the truth hurts more than the lies and assumptions people create about you. If you judge my brains and skills from a 30,000 foot view, you’re not doing a disservice to me, but rather motivating me to press on and laugh along the way.

Get mad, get glad, or scratch your ass — it doesn’t make a difference to me. I’m still a warrior, hunter, fighter and survivor regardless of what mud you sling my way. I’m good with mud.”
