Play • 51 min

On this episode, Melissa talks with Christi Holmes, a Registered Hunting and Fishing Guide in the great state of Maine. She’s the founder of the Maine Women Hunters Facebook Community and writer and contributor to publications such as The Maine Sportsman and Modern Huntsman Magazines. She’s also a fellow Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker, whoop-whoop!

Melissa caught up with Christi at her home, outside of Portland, earlier this year, on her way back to Brooklyn after re-hiking the northernmost stretch of the AT,  the 100-mile Wilderness, and summiting Mt. Katahdin with friends “Sprout” and “Harvest,” previously heard on episode 1. “Sprout,” aka Emma, and Melissa sat down with Christi after enjoying a huge meal of lobstahs, oysters and delicious Maine craft beer. They chat about hiking, fishing, hunting, growing up in Maine, Christi’s dog Argos, and most importantly, encouraging other women to get outside and explore.

Just a head’s up for listeners that there are moments when the ladies talk openly about the process of tracking and hunting animals, the details of which may not be suitable for everyone.
