Shooting Sports: Women (and Girls) in Hunting A Mother-Daughter Hunting Tradition Is Born A nice story about passing the hunting tradition on to the next generation.
Casey Hubbard is taking her 12-year-old daughter Shelby hunting in the hills ringing Eagle Point on Saturday, the beginning of Oregon's deer season for rifle hunters.

They're hoping Shelby will shoot her first blacktail buck on opening morning, just as Casey Hubbard has the past four years with the help of her husband, Robert Hubbard.
Read the whole thing. The statistics are interesting if not surprising on the number of women hunters, but perhaps that will improve over time.
