Teressa Groenewald-Hagerman bowhunting big-game elephant

Hunts of a Lifetime is proud to be a sponsor of Teressa Groenewald-Hagerman on her recent elephant bowhunt. Here are a few words from Teressa:

I have been a professional hunter for 10 years and in the hunting industry for 12 years. I don't normally get to hunt for myself because the client will always come first. This time the safari is for me.
A man by the name of Larry, who is a videographer for Orion Multi Media, bet me I couldn't shoot a buffalo or elephant with a bow. He indicated only 1 or 2 women had completed the buffalo with a bow and no woman had ever taken an elephant with a bow. Of course, I couldn't turn down the challenge. The buffalo safari fell through due to personal issues; it was upsetting and disappointing. However, it was best it didn't happen. I wasn't ready physically or mentally.

Once I realized the buffalo safari was not going to happen, I put all of my focus and energy in training for the elephant. I didn't realize how difficult of a task I had taken on. I realized rather quickly when I was constantly told I couldn't do it. I knew then it would happen no matter what.

It has been over a year now. When I started, I was only pulling 45lbs. Today, I can pull 85-90lbs depending on the bow. It has been a long year but will be well worth it when I can prove all the nay sayers wrong.

Hunts of a Lifetime wishes Teressa well on her next big-game adventure!
