Tammy Ballew has contributed “Camo Mom” to The WON for several years. Published in Women Hunters, The Hunting Life, West Tennessee Outdoors Magazine and Michigan’s Hooks and Bullets websites, this circuit court reporter can be found outdoors when not in a deposition or courtroom. Tammy pens the occasional review or feature for The WON in her spare time. She also is an agent for Outdoor Connection, and arranges hunting and fishing trips of a lifetime for clients.
She writes, “My favorite type of hunting is whatever is in season at that particular time. Deer, elk, turkey, doves, quail, squirrels, rabbits, prairie dogs and coyotes are the species I’ve hunted over the years. This has been with a bow, gun or handgun. Another love of my life is fishing – be it bass, catfish, crappie or you name it. Lastly, but definitely not least, I love shooting firearms. We are extremely fortunate to live in a country where we can enjoy this freedom and I take every opportunity I can to support our Second Amendment. I have spent hundreds of hours in the great outdoors and the sights, sounds and smells have given me many, many memories to treasure for the rest of my life. The sunrises and sunsets from my deer stand have been breathtaking and I have captured many of them in snapshots, not only with my camera, but also in my mind.”
