OKLAHOMA CITY - This whole thing is kind of surreal, because my family and I have watched Outdoor Oklahoma for as long as I can remember. I was approached over a year ago by producers of the show and asked if they could follow me around for a while. 

My first thought was "why in the world would you want to do that?!" I kept telling them I live a very ordinary, and somewhat boring life, but it would be an honor to be on the show. 

As a proud Okie, I love seeing how other Oklahomans enjoy the the outdoors! Our state has so many amazing things to offer!

The crew dedicated a lot of their time to filming me forecast, filming me on-air, and filming me hunt and fish. I am so very thankful to all of their hard work and dedication to put this ordinary Oklahoma gal on their show. I don't catch the biggest fish, I don't harvest the biggest deer, and I don't always limit out on waterfowl, but I do LOVE the Oklahoma outdoors! 

I was raised to never be bored, and to take advantage of what creation has to offer. I spend ALL of my spare time outside doing something. I always have. This is my time to be with my family and to just be still. I am so thankful to the Wildlife Department and to the staff of Outdoor Oklahoma for letting me share some of my families' experiences with all of you!
