One here, 2 a few yrs down the road
My daughter will be in the woods when she gets a shy bit older. Hopefully all 3 of my kids will be in the woods with me one day! I know of a fella whose 11 year old daughter hunts with him.
Honestly I don't know very many of my gender that coon hunt, one at a comp hunt and I heard of one young gal that used to with her Dad, but don't know her. Quite a few deer hunt, hadn't seen many in duck blinds or waiting at the ramp to get in the water either for that matter.
My husband has zero interest in it and I have no close by realatives, so when the kids are down for the night I load up a dog or too and find a little patch of woods (AKA paradise!) He jokingly acusses me of loving the dog more than him. Ha ha, me an Reb do spend an awful lot of time together in the woods! Ever once ina while I get to turn loose with some other dogs, which is awesome! Always lookin for someone to go with...
Just my opinion, unless she enjoys going by herself or her relative, husband or boyfriend goes, other than comp hunts (which goes back to having some one close in the sport, can't comp hunt your dog if you're not huntin it), I think you'd be hard pressed to find most women in the woods at night, there's a few of us though. This is not a shot at anyone at all, just my opinion.
I wish you the best of luck gettin the gals interested in this sport!
