Angie Haas-Tennison Wins 2011 Extreme Huntress Contest

Próis Hunting and Field Apparel, creator of female hunting clothing that screams ‘Xtreme’ performance and unmatched quality, is proud to announce the winner of its 5-month long contest and search for the most ‘xtreme’ and passionate female hunter at the 2011 ATA and SHOT Shows. Along with a slew of industry sponsors, and contest partner Tahoe Films, Próis was thrilled to present the award to Angie Haas-Tennison of Kila, Montana.

“From the moment I first heard about the ‘Xtreme Huntress Contest’ I just knew this was something I had to do. Like anything I put my mind to I went full-throttle. I poured my heart and soul into it, raising awareness of the contest, its great sponsors and of my love and devotion to hunting,” said Tennison. “Over the last two months I received an amazing amount of support from my friends, family, community and even some fellow hunters from across the globe. I am truly honored to be the Xtreme Huntress winner for 2011 and I hope to be a positive role model to women hunters everywhere,” she added.

As the new ‘Xtreme Huntress’, Tennison is awarded with an all-expense paid hunt of a lifetime in New Zealand to pursue Gold Medal Estate Stag, Fallow Deer and Tahr Free Range Chamois, provided by Fraser Safaris of New Zealand — which will also be filmed for a future episode of Primal Adventures. In addition to this amazing hunt, prestigious title — and bragging rights amongst fellow competitors — Tennison is taking home a myriad of ‘xtremely’ cool gear from contest sponsors including Próis Hunting and Field Apparel, Otis Technologies, Aimpoint, Bowtech, Swarovsky, Schnee’s and Badlands Packs — an all-inclusive package to be valued at more than $15,000.

The search for the ‘Xtreme Huntress’ began in August of 2010 where the most hardcore female hunters at heart were encouraged to enter, and share their story. Hundreds of essays and pictures were submitted, and then carefully reviewed by a panel of celebrity judges. The top 10 finalists were then chosen and posted online for the hunting community to select
their favorite.

This year’s celebrity panel of judges included: 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, 2010 Extreme Huntress Winner; Kirstie Pike, CEO Próis Hunting & Field Apparel and Tom Opre of Tahoe Films.
