Wyoming Women's Antelope Hunt

LAMAMIE, Wyo. -( In its fifth year, the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt brings women from across the nation together at the Ranch at Ucross in northeast Wyoming for a weekend of hunting, mentorship and camaraderie. It also raises funds and awareness for the Wyoming Women’s Foundation (WYWF).

The event continues to find wide support across the country and bring in some big names in hunting. This year the hunt welcomes Courtney Nicolson, a Denver-based outdoor writer, producer and editor.

Nicolson is a senior writer/producer for Outdoor Sportsman Group Networks, working on content for Sportsman Channel, Outdoor Channel and World Fishing Network. Nicolson also writes a monthly column for Women’s Outdoor News called “She Guides” which spotlights women hunting guides around the world. She is an avid hunter and angler, but didn’t grow up hunting.

Like 12 of the 44 hunters who will be participating at this year’s event, Nicolson’s first hunt experience was alongside a more experienced female hunter. Something she feels is positive.

“It’s important that the people teaching hunting aren’t just men,” says Nicolson, who also notes she’s teaching her dad to hunt. “If hunting is to continue as a tradition, we need everyone’s help.”

Sarah Chapman, Wyoming Women’s Foundation director, is delighted to have Nicolson in attendance. “We feel so fortunate to have someone as experienced and enthusiastic as Courtney joining us! All of the hunters can learn so much from her.”
