HER PHILOSOPHY

"Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you've decided to see beyond life's imperfections."

40 - 40

Mountain hunting is tough. It takes 12 different species of free-range Ovis (sheep) to qualify for an Ovis World Slam, and 12 of free-range Capra (goat/ibex) to qualify for a Capra World Slam. A few hunters have achieved a 20 - 20; even fewer have a 30 - 30. Only one hunter has a 40 - 40: Renee Snider.
