Cindy Stites

Her Wild Outdoors

Women, the Outdoors and Gender Bias Cindy Stites joins me for a conversation on the article she wrote for B.R. Shadley Sporting Report. It is "an article that needed written but no one wanted to write" and she took on the first in the series. We discuss how hard it was to write an article highlighting what women and other hunters deal with on a daily basis sometimes without targeting men who actually do it right.  Listen in and enjoy! Let us know what you think! We want to hear your opinions on the subject as well!

Squirrels, Deer, and Finding Your Joy Again with Cindy Stites

Artemis

Indiana hunter Cindy Stites found her way into the field after exiting an abusive marriage. With every hunt, she slowly saw the return of her old self -- someone who's confident, happy, and adventurous. The more she got into hunting, the more she adopted a new attitude to opportunities that came her way: "Start saying yes." She said 'yes' to becoming a hunter ed instructor, 'yes' to mentoring youth in the field, 'yes' to getting involved with conservation groups. This tactic opened up a number of new doors, and Cindy realized it was the healthy human relationships she formed through hunting that were bringing her happiness. 6:00 Froggin' in Alabama-speak is "giggin'"... and there's a special frog-sized pitchfork for this activity 10:00 A youth bow for small-framed ladies (Cindy is 5"3') is the Bear Apprentice 2 11:00 A thought that's crossed every adult-onset hunter's mindspace: "What if I'd been doing this for the past 15 years?" 12:00 An ill-fated rabbit hunt with a child: The rabbit started screaming, then the child started screaming, and the parent wonders if maybe just maybe hunting alone is better for everyone. 12:30 Cindy's piece on becoming an engaged conservationist Step up and Volunteer for Conservation, (which was preceded by an incredible moment: April Vokey says, "What's your dream job, Cindy?") 15:00 "Start saying yes" -- it can totally change your life. For Cindy, it started with someone asking if she wanted to volunteer teaching archery to 4-H kids. Then someone asked if she wanted to teach hunter's ed. "Yes" can lead you a lot of places! 16:00 'Yes' leads to organizations like BHA, Pheasants Forever, National Turkey Federation... a bonafide snowball scenario 17:00 The learning curve of being a well-informed conservationist? It's a lingo'd journey. Research, research, research. And if you're a storyteller? Break it down for others. 18:30 Cindy's piece on caribou conservation – coming soon! 24:00 Your "in" to spreading the conservation love... it may be getting someone outside, sparking their interest... OR, it might be that moment when someone says "What's a Pebble Mine?" and you're totally ready for that one 27:00 Getting into something new -- hunting/fishing/anything -- at a rocky/transitional time in your life can be totally transformative.  30:00 Hunting as an adult: A series of failures until things slowly start to click, then your confidence goes up, and it gets to be FUN. 40:00 Meaningful hunting experiences with family = highlights of life. Relationships are at the center of everything 48:00 The squirrel "sploot"... you can't go wrong Googling this for 10 minutes (or more) 49:00 That moment when you have food poisoning, even though you didn't eat out, and you realize YOU gave YOU food poisoning... #cheffail
