Woolx scoured the globe searching for intrepid adventurers to test out Woolx gear in the most extreme conditions, we’ve assembled this group of globetrotting daredevils into the #WoolxinAction team! Every month Woolx Life will feature our amazing Woolx in Action team members. To celebrate the opening of November hunting seasons, this month we’re featuring two of our team members who test out their Woolx gear while testing their mettle against fish, fowl and game! Earlier this month we featured hunter and outdoor enthusiasts Travis Sipe of Duck Wild Waterfowl, read on to learn more about our second featured team member Marti Davis of Marti Davis Afield.
Hunting and the outdoors isn’t just a past time for Marti, it’s her lifestyle and her passion. She enjoys hunting, trapping, fishing, scouting, working on food plots, riding an ATV and even brush hogging – although it’s not at the top of her “favorites” list. Besides her home state of Missouri, Marti has traveled to hunt in Tennessee, Idaho, Kansas, Arkansas, Illinois, Montana, Colorado and New Mexico. She has taken whitetail deer, turkey, black bear, elk and antelope. She also hunts small game, traps and hunt predators and occasionally hunts waterfowl. Whatever season, is open, she’s up for it. Marti writes a column ‘Marti Davis Afield’ at the Women’s Outdoor News. She also loves sharing her passion and introducing new hunters to the sport. Marti truly believes we must pass on our great hunting heritage. You can read more about Marti’s adventures outdoors on her own blog Marti Davis Afield.
We of course asked Marti to fill out the official “WoolxinAction Questionnaire”, read on to delve deeper into the mind of a dedicated outdoors women, hunter, conservationist and extreme brand Ambassador!
