Emma Garrison of Central-Burden was chosen as the Call of the Wild recipient for the month of May. Garrison is an avid hunter and fisherman.
“Any chance I get I am heading out to the water or the blind,” she said. “No matter what time of year, there is always something I am trying to hunt or catch.”
Garrison not only fishes for fun, but also competes and has significant success.
“I have competed in numerous fishing tournaments, and won a tournament with a 19.11-pound, three-fish limit bag,” Garrison said.
When it is hunting season, Garrison is always keeping tabs on the deer, no matter the time of day.
“During season I am constantly checking my phone to see if my trail cameras have gone off,” she said.
Garrison has a personal favorite to hunt, and it gives her a different kind of feel than any other game she hunts.
“My personal favorite to hunt would be turkeys,” Garrison said. “Waking up before the sunrise and calling to the gobblers while they are in the trees is my kind of adrenaline rush. My family gets tired of hearing about my hunting/fishing addiction, but I talk their ears off anyway.”
