All things country…
Hey ya’ll! I’m sitting up here in Minnesooooota thinking about the turn of events in my life. The last few days I have spent my time at Kruger Farms in Starbuck, MN. Any hunters and fishers out there? Kruger Farms offers guided hunting/fishing trips and lead to the launch of www.KrugerFarms.com, an online outdoor retailer for guide recommended hunting and fishing gear. KF brought me aboard the team to work as the National Accounts Manager serving as a “spokesperson” for the company. I will be filming several promotional videos and ideas are in the works for an outdoor show!
I’m sure you are wondering how I went from working in NASCAR to traveling back and forth from South Carolina to Minnesota!
One of my good friends Kelly Bires, Nationwide Series Driver, comes hunting here at KF each year. Back in December the owner of KF asked Kelly if he knew any girls who would want to come hunting at the farm for a story Maxim.com wanted to write about women who hunt! I was raised in a family of three girls and Daddy treated us like his little “boys” taking us fishing and dove hunting. In college I actually got to take an elective class called “Women’s Shotgun Skills.” This gave me the confidence to go duck and deer hunting a few times back at home. I traveled straight from the Texas race to the farm and shot my first geese and pheasant along with some ducks! We had the world champion duck and goose callers guiding us girls and it was the experience of a lifetime!
So that’s how I became involved here at KF! I couldn’t pass up the opportunity! The NASCAR fans and personalities I have met have the same passion I have for hunting and fishing and now I get to introduce them to KrugerFarms.com. When one door closes another door opens and I feel this is a such a natural step in my life. After going through something so devastating in my life, I now get to launch the KF Fearless campaign to give women confidence to enjoy hunting and fishing and give them an overall sense of empowerment!
This week at the farm we had our “Summer Shootout” with historic arms. I was able to shoot some of the most dangerous guns from World War I and II including the fifty cal, AK 47, BAR gun, UZI sub-machine gun and M16. We shot a lot of footage and right now I’m getting fitted with all my Under Armour for a fishing trip tomorrow. Think we are going for some small mouth bass and walleye!
Well I have two more days in in Minnesota. Don’t worry I’ve already hit up the Mall of America and left with some Minnetonka Moccasins. Oh call it luck but WeFest was in town and Blake Shelton and Brad Paisley were part of the show. My friend Kelley and I were able to watch the show from backstage. Funny story here…if ya haven’t seen Brad’s new “Old Alabama” video I was in there for a second. Well, when he performed at one of the races this year his Dad had me pretend I was Danica for a guy who worked with them Haha. I saw Brad at WeFest and he said “Danica” LOL! Geez!
Alrighty, well make sure ya check back often for some updates! I have a feeling I may have some more big news coming your way!
