just for the record, what is a huntress?
In recent years with the rise of social media, the term ‘huntress’ is often used by girls that use hunting and fishing for the sole purpose of gaining attention. Although there are still a lot of real women hunters that use that term, so sometimes it depends on who you ask.

I would say a huntress in Tanya's meaning is a woman monetizing their Instagram and other social media to make a living, get sponsorship, or supplement their income with it. Call it amateur vs pro or semi pro. Their Instagram is more about "look at me doing this", than "look at this. Tanya is a hunter. Eva Shockey is a huntress.

😂 that is a very good summarization of the stereotype of a ‘huntress’. IMO, I wouldn’t put Eva in the huntress category though b/c she has a pretty sizable list of animals she has taken!

Fair enough. She seems to work hard for her meat.

But say Tiffany of Tiffany and Lee fame has quite a list of animals I'm sure,, and I think I would group her as a huntress. She would just be a pre-instagram huntress. Lol. And I would say there are some badass huntresses. They just are more "look at me".
