These gals love hunting by themselves but sometimes their own minds get the better of them.
Bitch Session: We discuss solo hunting providing tips on planning, scouting, safety, gear and weather considerations. Courtney and Hannah are joined by Heather Shaw to talk about their solo hunting successes, their failures, the good stories and the bad, and maybe even some of the ugly. In this chat we talk a lot about the “head games” we play, and sometimes lose, with ourselves to keep confident when hunting alone.

Courtney is the Founder of Her Upland and is the Education and Outreach Director at Northwoods Collective. She is passionate about sharing knowledge and experiences for DIY upland hunting and all things bird dogs. When she’s not chasing feathers, you’ll find her training and testing dogs for NAVHDA and AKC Hunt Tests and Horseback Field Trials. Courtney hails from Wisconsin and currently resides in Montana with her husband, two toddlers, Bracchi Italiani, and German Wirehaired Pointers.
Hannah Nikonow grew up a big game hunter in Wyoming’s sagebrush sea and became an adult-onset upland hunter in her early 20s. She lives in western Montana with her husband, two bird dogs, and a fluctuating pigeon flock. Her ultimate joy is working behind her Wirehaired Pointing Griffon and Pudelpointer while they hunt, fish, and forage across public lands in the western U.S. Professionally, Hannah works as a Communications and Marketing Coordinator for the Intermountain West Joint Venture, a public-private organization dedicated to bird habitat conservation.
