Valley Hunting: Peebles thrilled with hunt in Southwest

Judith Peebles has enjoyed hunting all her life, so when she had the opportunity to go on a Texas trophy whitetail hunt, it was an easy decision. In a column last year, I recounted Judith’s success hunting boar in the Tennessee mountains. Well, she’s been at it again, only this time it turned out to be the hunt of a lifetime.

Judith answered an ad in an NRA magazine and sent in her deposit. She was selected for a Women on Target hunt. This organization, sponsored by the NRA, organizes hunting clinics, shooting tournaments, and women only hunts. They host a dozen or so hunts for pheasant, goose, deer, or bear at sights all over North America. A limited number of hunters are permitted on each trip and the group size varies depending on the quarry.

Judith headed for the K3 Ranch in Hunt, Texas, near San Antonio. She left behind her husband and favorite hunting partner, her son Ryan, with their blessings and full support. She flew into San Antonio the first weekend of last December.

“I had always hunted with my family, so this was something new. I had never hunted with other women before, so I was really looking forward to the experience.”

After arriving in San Antonio, she took the 2-hour drive to the 1500-acre hunting ranch. From the onset she felt a little out of her element with temperatures in the 80s and a Texas desert landscape far different than Indiana.

“There were nine women at the ranch from all different places. There was a writer from Buckmasters, a 69-year-old from Oregon, two ladies from Tennessee, and the rest were from Texas. They all varied in ability as well. There was even one who had learned to shoot a rifle for the first time two weeks before.”
