Shoot Like A Girl at RMEF Hunter Christmas Expo & Ladies Auction

Shoot Like A Girl (SLGinc²) recently visited the Las Vegas Convention Center for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s Hunter Christmas Expo, held Dec. 4 through 7. More than 28,000 people attended the inaugural event, presented by Cabela’s. SLG welcomed 222 ladies to its state-of-the-art, 52-foot trailer.

While in the trailer, women experienced the revolutionary introduction process to shooting, called Test Shots  and Test Flights,  as they shot pistols, rifles and compound bows in a safe, controlled environment in a short amount of time. The trailer features a military grade firearms simulation system and a live archery range, and is wheelchair accessible. If the women seemed excited at the
prospect of shooting under the guidance of qualified SLG² female instructors, they seemed almost more excited after their time in the trailer – as they look forward to continuing their quests to learn shooting skills.  

“RMEF is always a exciting environment to be involved in,” said Cristy Crawford, Shoot Like A Girl Chief Operations Officer. “We are grateful to be partnered with such a wonderful organization, filled with great people who are focused on conservation.”

SLG² also debuted a new firearms counter. The larger firearms counter gave attendees the opportunity to see and touch products and firearms from our corporate partners. This firearms counter features pistols and literature from Colt, Smith & Wesson, GLOCK, Charter Arms and 3m Peltor Hearing Protection.

In a partnership with Upper Canyon Outfitters of Montana, SLG² raised $7,750 for RMEF, by offering an elk/mule deer hunt at the RMEF Ladies Auction. The hunt placed

#8 in funds raised in overall hunts auctioned off at Elk Camp 2014.  This hunt is for women-only, for two on the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest near Robb Creek, which also happens to be RMEF’s first conservation land acquisition. Meals and lodge accommodations will be provided by Upper Canyon Outfitters. The package also included a bow provided by SLG², a Savage .30-’06 rifle, one set of Próis Hunting Apparel’s pants and jacket, SLG² merchandise and two pairs of Danner High Ground boots.
