LARAMIE, WY- From snow to sun to rain to wind, SITKA Gear knows hunters’ clothing needs to stand up to all seasons and conditions. The Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt demonstrates this need, having placed hunters amidst a blizzard in the year of its inception and experiencing all types of Wyoming’s unpredictable weather since. Ready to put SITKA Gear’s clothing to the test, the 2019 Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt is excited to welcome back SITKA Gear as a bronze-level sponsor.
With a reputation for innovative design and cutting-edge technology, SITKA Gear debuted its new line of women’s high-performance hunting gear in 2017. The new line of women’s clothing was developed by women, for women, over the course of three years. The head to toe, skin to shell, women’s SITKA system is designed to enhance rather than inhibit women’s movement while hunting.
“SITKA has been incredibly supportive by offering women’s-specific technical hunting clothing for our hunters in 2018 and again this year,” said WYWF Director Rebekah Smith. “We are proud to put these items to the test in whichever Wyoming weather conditions our hunters may encounter, and know that are hunters are covered. We appreciate SITKA’s investment in helping develop skills and self-sufficiency for women at the event.”
This year’s hunt will be held Oct. 10-13, 2019 and will bring together more than 40 female hunters from across the nation at the Ranch at Ucross in northeast Wyoming for a weekend of hunting, learning, mentorship and camaraderie, as well as raising funds and awareness for the Wyoming Women’s Foundation.
Please visit the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt webpage at wyomingwomensantelopehunt.org for more information on sponsorship and individual participation, including scholarships. Based on its level of contribution, each sponsor has the opportunity to invite women to hunt at the event. The foundation is also seeking dinner sponsors and in-kind donations for its fundraising auction dinner on Friday, Oct. 11.
