Tammy Ballew grew up hunting and fishing smack dab in the middle of a bunch of brothers in the Ozarks of Missouri. Let’s just say, there weren’t any companions for playing Barbies in her house. This avid outdoors woman has penned the column “Camo Mom” for several years, but now, pops in for an occasional review. We know that when Tammy likes a product, you’ll probably like it, too!
When she’s not working as a full-time court reporter in southwest Missouri, you’ll probably find her out hunting for whatever is in season. And, in her next life, she wants to come back as a professional bass angler. We think she likes the combination of big fish and fast boats. Who wouldn’t?
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.”
