Shoot Like A Girl has released its annual report covering the time period of July 2020 to June 2021 in addition to the recap of 2021. The report highlights the impactful results in spite of current events. Shoot Like A Girl was proud to once again take their mobile range on the road and host a diverse, engaged group of women ranging in age, ethnicity, political point of view, and economic level at events across the country. In 2021, the mobile range hosted over 2,800 individuals during their trailer events as part of the 2021 Home of the Brave Tour introducing women (and their families) to shooting sports in 2021. The full report is available online.
“Looking back on 2021, I’m grateful for all the experiences and opportunities Shoot Like A Girl was presented with,” said Karen Butler, Founder and President of Shoot Like A Girl, in a letter to corporate partners. “With the support of our partners, we were able to expand our already full schedule, adding hunts and tour stops to reach more women and share our love of shooting sports and the outdoors. To say it was a busy, rewarding year is an understatement.”
Empowering Women Through Events
Shoot Like A Girl offers a unique experience for women giving them an opportunity to shoot a pistol, rifle, and bow in a safe, controlled environment under the guidance of all-female certified instructors and archery coaches. In 2021, the tour included stops at Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s, conservation events and corporate events—with several events setting records for number of attendees.
Shoot Like A Girl’s Home of the Brave Tour reached 2,815 guests, mostly women (and a few men!) and their families. An overwhelming number of attendees committed to purchasing a firearm, and nearly 50% of attendees left with an improved attitude or opinion of firearms.
Shoot Like A Girl was also fortunate enough to host six partnership hunts where 56 attendees were introduced to shooting for sport in an all-female camp. These turkey, pheasant, and duck hunts were an opportunity for women who haven’t hunted, or who are inexperienced hunters, to learn more under the guidance of Shoot Like A Girl mentors.
Continuing the Momentum
Looking ahead to 2022, Shoot Like A Girl is anticipating continued growth from the previous year and hopes to reach a larger audience in 2022. The recently announced Sea To Shining Sea Tour began at Dallas Safari Club, and the full list of tour dates is available online.
