Sika Deer run wild in the Chesapeake Bay Area of the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I feel like this is a little-known fact but, it’s true…I’ve seen it myself. If you are looking for a unique and challenging bow hunting experience, hunting with Muddy Marsh Outfitters is what you need to do!! Muddy Marsh is located in Dorchester County, Maryland. Hunting wild Sika deer is a rewarding and fulfilling experience that you will not soon forget. Muddy Marsh Outfitters is a group of dedicated bowhunters catering only to bowhunters. The stand sites consist of baited permanent locations as well as portable stands allowing hunters to move with the action. Last year’s hunt with the Sisterhood of the Outdoors and Muddy Marsh we had ladies ages 16 to 60 and made memories to last a lifetime. You can be a lifelong bowhunter or just starting out looking for a challenging experience. Either way this hunt is unforgettable and an experience you will not want to miss.
It is August 18, 2017 memories flood my facebook page with the last 10 years of my life and antelope hunting. The journey laid out perfectly in pictures, comments and memories from my friends. From my first antelope hunt, to taking my family on my hunting journey and getting them their first antelope, to meeting friends for the first time, first time archery hunts, first big game kills, building relationships and friendships, building our sisterhood.
My anticipation of what is coming keeps me going every day. This year I am not only taking old friends hunting, I get to take their kids for the first time, 3 of them, their husbands, more ladies from my sisterhood, 4 young ladies that will someday carry on our mission, and others that will come as strangers but I promise they will leave as great friends. I sit every day in anticipation of what all of the memories will look like next year. The dreams I get to make come true for so many as a lady guide, as a friend, as an antelope hunter make the anticipation stronger.
So until Sept 10th, when my first hunters show up, I will wait, live through my memories and anticipate what lies ahead and what stories I will get to tell after my first year as a Lady Guide.
A good support system….
You can try hard, you can work hard, you can work harder but sometimes you need good help.
I became a licensed antelope hunting guide this year with the help of a ton of people, my support system. From family and friends, to colleagues and my employer. All giving me advice and helping along the way.
When I finally got my license in the mail I needed to find some quality hunting places to take my new clients. I started driving through familiar lands hoping to spark something, writing down numbers on posts, trying to remember who was who and where I was at. It all became very overwhelming. One day I sat at my desk, frustrated and confused so I decided to try out an app I had heard about, onXmaps. After it was installed on my phone, I began looking at the information it provided, I began calling landowners and recognizing where places were and before I knew it I had some great new places to take my clients.
onXmaps has become one of my biggest support systems in providing me with landowner information and details so I know where I am at all times and will be a big part of my success as a hunting guide this year.
