A Good Cover Story

July 22, 2015 - Larry Claypool
A year ago my column (July 2014, Ohio Valley Outdoor Times) was dedicated to women in the outdoors, titled “Supply and Demand: For Pink Products”. The focus was around outdoor products that were geared toward women — PINK products and the like. Manufacturers have filled retail shops and the Internet with an unlimited amount of outdoor products and clothing for females, young and old. As I said before, there’s a good reason manufacturers are offering pink products, and products that fit women, because they’re selling — and making money! I bring this up — to check in a year later — and announce that Ohio Valley Outdoors magazine has recently interviewed Ohio female huntress Beka Garris for an upcoming feature article, written by Brenda Layman. Garris, of southern Ohio, has become an Internet celebrity by offering her almost DAILY outdoor adventures while she roams the region; hunting, scouting, hiking, fishing and bowfishing in the Ohio valley and beyond. Her bowfishing photos and videos are outstanding! With over 42,000 ‘Likes’ on Facebook and nearly 18,000 followers on Instagram (as WILDERNESSBABE), the 20-something Garris is getting a lot of attention these days. We’re excited to hear her story, and present it to you. Many questions of Garris surrounds her hunting tactics, and how she's able to get so many great photographs of herself in the outdoors. She explains. Stay tuned. Note: The attached photo was taken for the article by Mark Layman. We will also have photograph 'selfies' from Garris to run with the article.
