Greetings from new Winchester Blogger – Nikki Boxler
Hi Everyone, I’m Nikki Boxler. You may be wondering why I am here. And…how I may be able to help you find even more enjoyment by preparing for a hunt, while on the hunt itself or by reaping the rewards as a hunter with wild game in the oven or on the grill.
Ah yes…good questions indeed. Do know that I am extremely excited to become a regular blogger for Winchester Ammunition. My objective here will be to share some tips and some experiences on how to get more enjoyment from our great sport! Like you, I have a full-time job. I work as a marketing director in Buffalo, NY. I try to balance my full-time career with my full-time passion for hunting, fishing and just about anything the outdoors has to offer.
Through my blogging, I’ll do my best to share my hunting experiences and what I have learned from them to become more seasoned and skilled. I’ll provide some simple exercise tips that may allow you to be even sharper and more proficient when chasing that big buck and favorite game recipes that will make the whole family happy.
My father introduced me to hunting at an early age – the same probably happened to you. He first shared the ins and outs of raccoon hunting. Those early hunts soon evolved into chasing whitetail at his side with my very own first shotgun. To no surprise, these early experiences and memories have instilled a deep appreciation for the sport and the resource. The camaraderie and bonding that occurs between we hunters provides a feeling like no other for me, and continues to fuel my passion for this sport. I know you feel the same.
Most of my seasons are spent hunting whitetail and turkey. However, I relish the opportunity to get out in the field and learn something new with each and every outing. Currently, I’m spending more time waterfowling and am loving every minute of it!
In addition to hunting, it is important to me as well as hunters across the board that we continue to educate and involve youth. I am in the process of becoming a sportsman education instructor and am excited to be able to participate in educating the future of our sport.
I was fortunate to be able to play NCAA volleyball in college. To me, hunting and fitness go hand-in-hand due to the physical demands sports have on our bodies. I’m convinced that maintaining personal health as a hunter not only ensures the longevity of one’s ability to hunt, but I would argue it also increases personal satisfaction of the sport.
There are a million things you can read and see online. I’ll do all I can to share things I have gained through life experiences and experiences as a hunter that may help you find even more satisfaction and enjoyment from our most favorite of sports.
