Nikki, originally from a small town in eastern Iowa, has called Des Moines her home for 6 years now.
New to hunting, Nikki picked up a bow at the beginning of 2015 and from the first arrow she released, she was hooked! Nikki harvested her first deer, a doe last fall with her bow and shot her first turkey using a shotgun this 2016 spring turkey season! She is looking forward to hopefully harvesting her first buck this fall and even has a special place on her wall reserved just for her first buck mount!
She loves getting up early and making that trek to the stand or blind, watching the sunrise and listening to the woods wake up! “There is something about sitting 20 ft high, alone in the dark, waiting for the sun to rise. It’s so peaceful. It makes me realize how blessed I am to be given the opportunity to hunt and provide fresh, organic food for my children. “
Nikki’s 14 year old son, Kaleb also hunts deer and harvested his first turkey this 2016 youth turkey season and we even got it on video! You can watch it right here on Trophy Pursuit! Her daughter Ava can’t wait to join in the addiction!
Nikki enjoys spending time with her three children, Kaleb, Ava and Reid, family and friends. She also enjoys taking pictures of nature, going boating and sitting around a bonfire!
“I am truly honored to be a part of such an amazing, talented group of people and hunters. I am looking forward to sharing my experiences with you! “-Nikki
“If you consider an unsuccessful hunt to be a waste of time, then the true meaning of the chase eludes you all together.” –Fred Bear
