Women of Remington Outdoor Company: Emily Albright

In our continuing series on the women of Remington Outdoor Company, we will meet a buyer/planner, Emily Albright, in the Arms Service Department. We think you’ll appreciate that Albright walks the walk — mentoring the next generation and new women hunters whenever possible. 

I am a small town country girl who was born and raised in Paris, New York. Not only am I an avid hunter/shooter, but I am also a Hunter’s Education Instructor. You could say that I grew up on Remington Firearms.  In fact, the Ilion plant, which will celebrate their 200th Anniversary in 2016, is only 25 minutes from my home.

When I was 15 years old, my uncle took me on my very first turkey hunt.  I didn’t know it then but that day would change my life. Not long after, I attended Paul Smith’s College in the Adirondacks where I received my Bachelors Degree in Natural Resources Environmental Science with a minor in Fish & Wildlife.  After college, I took a job with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) as one of their Women’s Regional Coordinators for their Women in the Outdoors Program. My job was to help set up and organize events that would teach women a large variety of outdoor skills and knowledge — some of which included hunting seminars, safe gun handling courses, fly fishing skills, outdoor cooking, kayaking/canoeing classes, etc.

After working with the NWTF for more than two years, I decided to leave that job in order to come and work at Remington Arms. I currently work in the Arms Service Department as a Buyer/Planner.

I enjoy coming to work every day knowing that we are helping other hunters and shooters stay on top of their game.

It is well known that I typically take my vacation during turkey season and enjoy traveling all over the country to hunt these beautiful birds.  I have harvested many birds in multiple states and even Canada.  There is something about the sights, smells and sounds of spring that keep me coming back.

Those who have hunted with me know I am pretty superstitious when it comes to the turkey woods. I always have my lucky Remington hat and carry my 12 gauge 870, which I have named “Old Faithful.” I have found that this gun prefers Remington Nitros in 5 shot and that’s all that I use. I load (3) in before each hunt … no more, no less. I have harvested over 25 turkeys with this one firearm and have come to depend on it.  I have had it for many years and could not picture myself hitting the turkey woods without it. I bought it with the Shurshot Stock and have added a SuperCell recoil pad. I love the way that this stock allows you to grip and control the firearm.  I know that females and younger children typically have a hard time finding a firearm that fits them but this one does the trick for me.  Not to mention, it is ambidextrous.

My husband and I both are Pro Staff for Mossy Oak and enjoy helping with various “turkey events” each year. Every spring we mentor both a Youth Turkey Hunt and a Women’s Turkey Hunt within our local community. We have also been involved and helped start a Wounded Warrior Turkey Hunt in which we take a couple wounded veterans out into the field  I truly enjoy teaching and helping others get involved in the outdoor and shooting sports.

I am extremely grateful that I get to work for a company who shares in a lot of my same passions and beliefs. To me, hunting is not just about the harvest. I have experienced and seen some really incredible sights and landscapes. If you are someone who is looking to get into the hunting or shooting sports, I encourage you to check us out. Remington truly does make something for everyone.
