For this session, we are bringing in a strong female voice that promotes women’s hunting opportunities: Jana Waller.

Previously she produced and hosted Skull Bound TV for nine years on The Sportsman Channel where she received a Golden Moose Award for Best In Conservation in 2018. She’s been a lifelong hunter and ardent conservationist belonging to numerous conservation organizations for which she’s raised over $82,000 with her skull artwork.

Jana was awarded the Communicator Of The Year award in 2015 by the National Wild Turkey Federation as well as received an Alumni Award in 2016 from her alma mater, the University Of Wisconsin-Whitewater, for “promoting women in the outdoors” with the use of her public relations degree. She was also awarded the Carbon TV Fan Favorite award for best host in 2019 and in 2020. Jana lives in the Bitterroot Valley where she was appointed as a Montana Wildlife Commissioner by Governor Greg Gianforte in the fall of 2021.
While this event is focused on ladies, we invite everyone to join us.
