These ladies are setting a new standard for filling the freezer.
While hunting participation numbers are down, perhaps the greatest saving grace is rise of female hunters. Not only are more and more women getting involved in our nation's oldest tradition, but they're doing it with style, too.
Many women have created their own outdoor brands using social media, namely Instagram, and they're producing the results to back it up.
Let's take a look at some of our favorite influencers who are already off to a hot start this year.
If you spend any time on social media, you've probably heard of Hannah Barron by now. She's widely known for her swamp expeditions down in her home state of Alabama, where she wrestles huge catfish, alligators and feral hogs. But she's no stranger to whitetail, as she was able to drop a top-notch buck with her bow in Kansas.
Jessica Byers, a Texas native, dabbles in every kind of hunting she can, but bowhunting for whitetail deer is undoubtedly her passion. She dropped this stud of a buck in Kentucky this year, but then again, this isn't her first rodeo.
Alex Templeton puts in serious work out in her home state of Missouri, but she travels all over to chase trophy-class game animals. Back in the spring, she and her father doubled up on a couple of beautiful gobblers.
While Hollis Lumpkin doesn't have quite as gaudy of Instagram numbers, her followers continue to grow with her hunting accomplishments. Hailing from Charleston, South Carolina, she's no stranger to hard work or big bucks, but she too travels the world in pursuit of nature's most impressive animals. Earlier this month she brought back a haul of geese and ducks from Saskatchewan!
Cara Harper has a knack for everything outdoors, but remains loyal to her waterfowl and bowhunting roots. Back in September, she managed to harvest her first-ever archery bull elk, which just so happened to be an absolute monster.
