“Marti Davis debuts with a new column, “Marti Davis Afield,” and is a pro staff member for several outdoor equipment companies, including Knight & Hale, Moultrie Products, Code Blue, Strut and Rut and Mossy Oak. Mossy Oak’s motto of “It’s not a passion. It’s an obsession,” could be Marti’s creed for her own outdoor lifestyle. In the past 13 years Marti has gone from whitetail and turkey hunting in southwest Missouri to hunting in nine different states. Some of those hunts included chasing black bear in Idaho, elk in Colorado and whitetails and turkey in northwest Tennessee. Marti confesses, “Hunting those big whitetails of southern Illinois is my absolute favorite.”When not hunting or at work at a quarry in Willard, Mo., Marti might be on call as a professional speaker, as a coordinator for NWTF’s Women in the Outdoors and as an instructor for hunting and bowhunting education programs.
