Reprinted in full by permission. Below is Ms Eckstrom with a turkey.

1. Coming face-to-face with a bull elk could add that necessary element of danger your day job is lacking - because avoiding Steve from accounting has become too easy.

2. It’s a much cheaper way to get organic meat than Whole Foods.

3. All of your friends think that you’re a real-life Katniss, which reminds them why it’s in their best interest to stay on your good side.

4. It opens a whole new realm of possible comebacks to “make me a sandwich.”

5. That sunrise pic from your deer stand doesn’t even need a filter #nofilter #camoselfie

6. Hunting boots are a nice break from those blister-inducing stilettos.

7. When asking for extra vacation days to go on your guided Alaskan grizzly hunt, there is freedom to interpret your boss’ shocked silence as a “yes.”

8. Puppies. Brand-new bundles of furry joy that will someday be your partner-in-crime in the duck blind.

9. There are few better ways to blow off steam than at the shooting range.

10. Last but not least, you did most of the work bringing the “groceries” home, so asking your significant other to do the cooking is completely valid.

As soon as I saw this I emailed Ms Eckstrom's work, knowing I had to reprint in full. Women are the fastest growing segment of the hunting population. Regardless of her gender Ms Eckstrom and people like her pop up on the internet more and more frequently these days. Young, tech savvy, into clean food, sense of humor. They post videos and tweets of themselves enjoying the wild places we are so lucky to have in America. This generation coming up fills me with optimism.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
