Every day we meet some amazing people who enjoy the outdoors. We thought it would be fun to introduce you to some of them so that you can get an idea of some of the wonderful things we can all do outdoors. You don’t have to be a fancy scientist, a hunter, an extreme climber – you just have to be willing to open that door and walk into the sunshine….so – in honor of Spring – here is our first friend – Dawn Freeland hosts Women Camp Too – visit her and let her know you support other Chicks!

The Outdoors


I grew up fishing & camping with my family, in lakes & ponds of all sizes, and fishing from small boats and pontoons, docks, and embankments.


As an adult, life has taken a different path for me. I fish less often and hunt & camp more. However, I have never forgotten my roots, and every summer we throw out the old worms, real and/or rubber, a few lures just to see what will bite. Sunfish/Bluegill, Perch, and Bass are a few of our favorites to catch. We keep the bigger ones and throw back the fish nuggets.

Cooking and eating the days catch is just about as fun as catching them.


This is me.


I am an average women doing what she loves. I am trying to make a difference in the way women fit into the outdoors, whether it is hunting, camping or fishing. I believe that woman of all ages do not just belong in the mall, home or work. That there is another place for them, just waiting for them to take part and enjoy….the great outdoors.

As an adult, I have never fished in a tournament. As and adult I have only fished outside of Michigan a couple of times. I just love and respect the outdoors and in-turn it loves and respects me back.


I don’t have the fancy equipment or the best gear, I am just me.

I have never fished in far off waters nor have I broken any records, I am just me.

I love what I do, and I do what I love and, I am just me.
