Perceptions about women and hunting sure have changed in the last quarter century or so. Case in point: It was about that long ago when Donna McDonald, owner of Upper Canyon Outfitters in Alder, Mont., found herself (as she always did) in an elk camp full of men. As they entered camp, eager to wrap their tags around southwest Montana's monster bulls, one of the hunters innocently asked if she was the cook. Fast forward to the present and it's a rare season that finds McDonald the sole lady in camp. That not only makes her proud but it also signifies another ray of hope for a hunting industry that is constantly looking to the future.
