Jennifer Wapenski is a new hunter with a lifelong passion for the outdoors, dogs, and wildlife. A single day spent pheasant hunting got her hooked on the upland game; just one year later, she found herself with her first gun dog and a whole lot to learn about pursuing game birds. Jennifer lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and their two dogs. On any given weekend, they might be found stalking quail, sitting in a duck blind, fishing for salmon, or on some other adventure.
