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.

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

▪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.
"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.

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.
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.
