Women's Hunting Association is a Division of Just Hunt®
The Ambassador Program is about doing your own thing. Amanda Lynn has been an Ambassador and Brand Manager for many companies over the course of 20 years in different genres and knows exactly what it takes to have a successful team. She knows what goes into it from both sides. All that is expected from the Just Hunt® Crew is to love what you do, be true to who you are and #justhunt - whether it be for animals, fish, or life. Stay focused on positive inspiration and keep it simple.
In fact, Amanda Lynn wants to help others succeed in their industries, with the ability to share the potential that outdoors enthusiasts have to inspire others to follow our heritage giving you a chance to be discovered by industry leaders.
There is no pressure, be you, and love what you do. We want to share what you love to do. Simple as that.
We want to share the word across the country in each province. Lifestyle, Hunting, Shooting, Archery, and the Outdoors.
Hard work will stand out and we are here to help push you into the hands of the outdoors industry with credibility and reputation. Sponsors and event co-ordinators look at the whole picture when deciding on who to represent their brand or show and some of the things to be aware of are:
▪passion for what you preach
▪consistency in brand recognition
▪social media existence
Loyalty and appreciation work both ways and the best relationship between endorser and sponsor is one that is open with communication, sharing innovative ideas, and always looking ahead at the next project.

Candace always wanted to hunt, but growing up it wasn't really a girls activity in her family. Candace allowed this notion for a long time to play in her head. It's not like anyone told her she couldn't but one day, her husband took her out to his uncle's field and sent a little orange disc through the sky and told her to shoot it.
She is not only a proud hunter but also participates in interclub trap shooting with aspirations of a future ATA shooter.
"It's a community and we are here for each other."
Sharing stories and advice as well as laughs, that's what she loves most. Candace wants to help women as well as our youth get involved in the outdoors, whether its shooting sports, hunting, fishing or just living your authentic self. Candace lives by being an ethical hunter, and promoting conservation. Not every hunt ends in harvesting an animal but you can always leave with new knowledge. It's a process and the real fun is getting there, so lets get there together.

They signed up, passed, and by the spring of 2017, had their full licenses.Danielle's first time out hunting was with Amanda Lynn. She took part in the very first “Take Me Hunting” in October of 2017, and although the first day out she saw a few birds, she didn't pulled the trigger until the last day.
Over the next few months she participated in deer, and joined Amanda Lynn as part of her TV show that focused on her and first bear hunt. During that week, she learned a lot used that knowledge when she went in for the fall bear hunt and was able to harvest my first big game.
Entrepreneur, Owner of Original Red Beard Company
Dana's a multitasking super-mom with a love of the outdoors. She enjoys hiking, boating, fishing, camping, and recently hunting and many other nature-loving pursuits along with my husband and three children.
Recently Dana participated in the "Take Me Hunting" weekend with a few other women and really came into her own. That experience took her love of hunting and transformed it into a passion that has been amplified by the desire to be self-reliant and being able to "live off the land" in a natural setting. Dana has a belief that more women will become involved in hunting and the great outdoors once the "boys club" stigma is removed by more involvement and education for female participants.
With her passion for travel, food and sharing adventures with others through social media, Dana feels she can encourage other females to pursue their dreams and overcome their doubts and fears of the outdoors and hunting and the stigma that follows.

Sherri Usselman was born and raised on a grain farm in Central Saskatchewan where she still visits every day to look after her 80+ farm animals.
Having a Father with a hunting/trapping/fishing background was a definite influence in Sherri's life.
Besides the gophers and blackbirds that were "hunted" around the farm with her older brother, the passion really took off after the first Mule deer doe was taken when Sherri was a teenager.
Since then the game list has included whitetail deer, wild boar, zebra, red stag, impala, caribou and bear (just to name a few) and the destinations travelled to fill those tags start right at home and go throughout the US, to New Zealand, Argentina and 2 trips to South Africa (with a 3rd in the works for summer 2019.
Whether it's checking trail cameras, looking for shed antlers or focusing on the next wildlife season, it's safe to say that Sherri lives for the great outdoors.
