They Have The Passion Weekly - A Reel Lady

In honor of the opening of Connecticuts Spring turkey season, this week's They Have The Passion post features Glynn over at A Reel Lady.  I've been following Glynn's blog and as well as on twitter and she has been nonstop tweeting and writing about her turkey chasing adventures.

Glynn describes herself like this :
"I love high heels, good jeans, purses, and makeup, but I love fishing, hunting, and being outside."  

Okay, anyone can say that right, but you have to prove it.  So how many pocket knives do you have on you?  Well Glynn claims she has 3 pocket knives in her coach purse. That's right 3!  I'm not sure if that is a sign that she needs help or that she wants to ensure she has a sharp knife with here just in case she runs across a fresh road kill.  From what I read, I'm going with the roadkill theory.

In Glynn's bio she states:
I want to learn to shoot a bow, so I can go gator hunting, and bow fishing. I also want to catch a sail fish, marlin, and halibut. I love the feeling I get when I hear the drag getting pulled on a line.

If the above doesn't convince you that she has the passion for the outdoors then make sure to read her posts about her turkey season so far.  Like I said, I've been following her hunts and she has no quit in her and is pushing for success on harvesting a turkey with her bow.  Turkey's are hard enough with the shotgun and this young lady wants to use her bow.  Yo go Girl!  I don't want to ruin the ending but I know the outcome of her drive for success with the bow this spring and you will just have to follow her blog to find out how it ends.

I would like to talk with her husband though, as Glynn credits him with teaching her to fish and in learning to shoot a bow, but when I read the claim below it reminded me on why I stopped taking my wife to the range and the water and probably why I should stop taking my daughter hunting in fishing as well.

He wouldn’t admit it (on most days), but I can outshoot him with a shotgun AND a rifle (for the most part).

Looks like Glynn might be making the better shot claim with the bow as well

I love to see women and kids share in our great outdoor traditions of shooting, hunting and fishing and following along with Glynn on her outdoor adventures just makes me believe that our traditions are in good hands.  So make sure to stop by A Reel Lady and add her blog to your reading list, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for sharing the Passion Glynn and just a reminder that you are a little behind on the turkey hunting posts.
