"The Schumacher Lions Club recently held our annual Spring Sportsman Show and we invited Amanda Lynn Mayhew to be one of our guest speakers and to meet with all who attended the show. This was our 3rd time inviting Amanda and she never disappoints. Her jovial attitude coupled with her genuine love of meeting and chatting with young and old sharing her stories has once again shined brightly throughout the show. From taking countless selfies with everyone who asked to sharing her vast knowledge in Hunting and Fishing that she has amassed over the years; she was able to entertain and impress all who had the pleasure of listening to her. She is a gifted story teller who captures the audience like few can. The Schumacher Lions have received countless praise for what Amanda has brought to our show and we have already booked her services for 2024. We highly recommend to any organization that is looking for a very skilled, personable and genuinely amazing expert at Hunting & Fishing as well as capturing an audience the way Amanda does to book her services. I would be happy to discuss our experiences with Amanda at our show at anytime."

"I have made a lot of hunting videos in the past in the province of Quebec, with the aim of made discovering my hunting techniques. But, it was the first time that I participated in a video project for Sportsman Channel. Amanda Lynn is truly passionate. Hunting as I do it is very demanding, it involves walking in the woods all day. Additionally, the terrain is very hard to walk on in Newfoundland and Amanda Lynn, who even with a foot injury, knew how to persevere and did not give up. She walked several km to finally succeed in her hunt. She’s the kind of hunter I like to guide." - Michel Breton, Moose Guide
