Alpen Alliance Ambassador - Sharenda Birts
Sharenda Birts' journey into the world of hunting in 2019 is a testament to her determination and passion for the outdoors. Born outside the traditional realm of outdoor sports enthusiasts, she embarked on her learning adventure with a tenacity that defines her character. Despite initially navigating through the complexities of acquiring hunting skills with blind attempts at research and inquiries, Sharenda's story took a transformative turn when she sought guidance from her local conservation community.
As she delved into the intricacies of hunting, Sharenda discovered a supportive network of like-minded women who shared her enthusiasm for the outdoors. Together, they founded wildHERness.org, a 501c3 organization with a mission to guide educational experiences fostering independence and self-sufficiency. Their focus on making outdoor adventures accessible to all women at free to low cost reflects a commitment to breaking down barriers and encouraging more women to explore the wonders of the natural world.
Balancing a full-time job with her passion for hunting and the outdoors, Sharenda has become a formidable presence in the hunting community. Her preferred pursuits include hunting whitetail, pheasant, and waterfowl across the states of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma. Beyond the thrill of the hunt, she actively explores local state parks and conservation areas, appreciating the diverse landscapes her region has to offer.
Sharenda's involvement extends beyond her personal pursuits. As a brand ambassador for Savage Arms, she plays a vital role in representing and promoting the brand. Additionally, she contributes to the discourse on outdoor sports as a panelist on The Reloading Podcast YouTube channel. Her commitment to conservation is further demonstrated by her role as a board member with the local Pheasants Forever chapter. She generously volunteers her time and mentors others within various conservation organizations, creating a ripple effect of knowledge and appreciation for the environment.
A true advocate for the outdoors, Sharenda goes beyond her professional engagements and actively involves her family and friends in outdoor activities. Whether introducing them to the intricacies of hunting or sharing wild game family-style meals, she creates a supportive community that extends the joy of outdoor adventures.
Importantly, Sharenda's message transcends her personal accomplishments. Through her experiences, she sends a powerful message to women everywhere—that it is never too late to explore the outdoors. Her journey is an inspiring narrative of perseverance, camaraderie, and the transformative power of nature. In moments of tranquility, she takes respite with her portable outdoor coffee bar, brewing a pour-over cup of coffee, and relishing the simple joy of being in nature without an agenda—an embodiment of the profound connection she has forged with the wilderness.
