ABOUT IVORY PEAKS
To start off, I've created this brand for a few reasons;
Number 1 - To help those who don't understand hunting to gain knowledge of what we do and to see how much good we actually do in helping wildlife.
Number 2 - To unite the hunting community, as of lately I've seen a lot of disconnect and right now we need to stand together more than ever. Along with giving Women the courage to stand up and feel they have a place and a voice in hunting.
Number 3 - To push people into following their passions, no matter what it may be and no matter how hard it may be.
Number 4 - Lastly, to share my passions with you.
My world has revolved around hunting for the last 5 years, and the outdoors for the last 22 years. Since I was so young I wanted to spend every second I could outside, whether that was going camping, boating, horseback riding, traveling, or just wandering around. And from that young age, my interest for hunting started from watching shows about Mountain Men and Native Americans. I was fascinated by that lifestyle of surviving with what the world gave you. No stores, no internet, no restaurants. Just nature and what it had to offer. Obviously that lifestyle is very difficult. But that's just one of the many reasons why I love it.
My interest in hunting also sparked from the conservation side of things and everything it actually did in benefit for the animals and the land around it. That was something I deeply wanted to be apart of. I love the animals that roam this earth with so much of my heart, especially the elk. I've always connected with those creatures and want to protect them and keep them as healthy as they can be, and hunting is such an important part of making that happen.
I could honestly go on and on about why I hunt, but one other thing that really got me into hunting was the fact of providing for yourself and getting some of the most natural, clean and lean meat you could ever get. I never worry about protein. And while I may end up spending the same amount of money on hunting - if not more between the tags, gas and equipment versus buying some meat at a store... the memories, experiences, effort and achievement you get from it is priceless.
Once I actually started to hunt and become apart of the industry I started noticing how much hate us hunters got from a large part of the human population. While I understand where they are coming from, I feel that there is just so much misinformation out there. Especially with "poachers" who are completely DIFFERENT from hunters. One has immense respect for the animals and the land and the other is greedy, selfish and doesn't care about anything but themselves.
I eagerly want to educate people in the good hunters do for the world. We are the number 1 contributors to conservation. Everything we do and so much of what we spend goes back into helping wildlife.
With this brand, I really hope to open the eyes of those who are unsure. I'm not trying to tell anyone they should hunt, cause I know it's not for everyone. But I want people to understand that hunting is not wrong, it's not evil. It's apart of nature just like everything else. Everyones ancestors have hunted, no matter who you are and what your opinions are. Humans hunting is just as natural as wolves, bears or lions hunting.
So my goal is to help those understand, to write informative blogs and answer questions. I certainly hope you follow along to read what I have to say.
