Sarah Peterson @turkeyterminator
I am an avid hunter and fisher woman, based out of Wisconsin. I am a certified hunter safety instructor who is also pursuing a degree in natural resources. My favorite species to hunt are turkey and waterfowl. Why are birds some of my favorite targets? Well I really enjoy how social turkeys are, and being able to go out on the water with some of my best friends is what I love about duck hunting. For fishing, My favorite species are trout, whether in the streams or out on the big lake. I really enjoy hunting and fishing because it’s something I was born into and sharing my passions with my family and friends is what being a sportswoman is all about.
