Prois Hunting and Field Apparel and Primal Adventures TV launch 2nd Annual 'Extreme' Huntress national contest

Last year, hundreds of incredible essays were submitted, countless online votes were cast, and your community voted for the most hardcore female hunter who exhibits fearless pursuits with no limits in the field. And now, Próis® Hunting and Field Apparel has partnered once again with Primal Adventures TV — and a host of industry sponsors — to once again put out a clarion call to female hunters everywhere for the search of the most intrepid huntress out there with its 2nd Annual ʻExtreme Huntressʼ Contest. This time, raising the ante with a chance to win even more exciting hunting gear, and an all-expense paid hunt of a lifetime in New Zealand to pursue Gold Medal estate stags, fallow deer tahrs, and free-range chamois, provided by Fraser Safaris of New Zealand.

If your idea of a good time means taking on one of the “Big Five” with a bow or hunting grizzly through thick bush – then we want to hear your unforgettable story! Simply submit an essay with pictures of your most “extreme” adventure by October 1st for the chance to take home the 2010 “Extreme Huntress” title, and start gearing up for your hunt of a lifetime, which will be filmed by Primal Adventures TV.

Entries that are ranked in the top 10 by a celebrity panel of judges are then placed onto the Tahoe Films, Ltd. website (www.tahoefilms.com) on November 1st, where the hunting public has until January 1, 2011 to select their favorite.

To top it off, the new “Extreme Huntress” will be fully outfitted with the ʻextremeʼ gear needed for her hunt by contest sponsors including Próis Hunting and Field Apparel, Otis Technology, Aimpoint, Bowtech, Swarovsky, Schneeʼs and Badlands Packs — an all-inclusive package to be valued at more than $25,000.

“We were thrilled with the response and excitement the contest generated last year, and cannot wait to read even more inspiring stories of serious female hunters who really go for it in the field,” says Kirstie Pike, CEO of Próis.

“Itʼs evident that female hunting has quickly earned a major role in the industry, and weʼre excited to be able to celebrate these amazing women.”

The 2010 celebrity panel of judges includes: Chris Brackett of Rut-N-Hard TV and Brackett Outdoors; Diana Rupp, Editor in Chief of Sports Afield magazine; Guy Eastman, publisher of Eastman Hunting Journals; Larry Weishuhn of Winchester World of Whitetails; Rebecca Francis, 2009 Extreme Huntress winner; Kirstie Pike, CEO Próis Hunting & Field Apparel and Tom Opre of Tahoe Films.
