A southpaw from Michigan’s “North Woods,” Britney Starr is a freelance writer and editor in the outdoor and shooting markets. She received a Bachelor’s degree in journalism in 2008 from Western Michigan University, and is currently the managing editor at The Women’s Outdoor News (The WON). Along with editorial copy at The WON, she also pens the column “ShootingStarr” sponsored by Galco Gunleather.
She is part owner, client services representative and social media manager of Starr & Bodill African Safaris, and enjoys working side-by-side with her father and licensed Professional Hunter Dwaine Starr, to provide their clients with a worry-free safari.
Along with big game hunting in Africa, Britney also hunts turkey, whitetail deer, waterfowl and upland birds. In the fall, you will most likely find her in an aspen cutting with her German Shorthair Pointer, Wesson, hunting ruffed grouse and woodcock. She would prefer a beautiful over-and-under shotgun to jewelry, any day.
Along with being a field-staff member for Próis Hunting & Field Apparel, a member of Safari Club International and a life member of the NRA, Britney is the founder of the Women’s Outdoor & Shooting Industry Dinner, held annually during SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nev. Britney truly has an affinity for all things outdoors and strives to connect with and empower other women who share her love of hunting and shooting, or are interested in becoming more involved in those activities.
