Calendar of Events – Keep up with Becky Lou!!
Along with all the adventures that keep her running and gunning across the country, Becky Lou is on a mission to help provide women affordable economical adventures. Using her passion and the many people she meets, She is constantly searching for a way for groups of women to share in an outdoor experience! Seasoned outdoors women are welcome, but new beginners are encouraged to join on the events that allow for novice participants!
Becky Lou founded an open Facebook group called, “A Girls Hunt Out” (inspired by the infamous event of a Girls night Out!) with the motto to “Let No Huntress be Left http://buysoma.net Behind”. Hoping to provide a common resource for all organizations to post and promote women’s outdoor activities from shooting, fishing, camping and hunting! Becky Lou plans several activities each year including from Pheasant & Quail Hunting in NE Texas, Waterfowl Hunting in the swamps of Southern Louisiana, Turkey Hunting in Kansas, Nebraska and the Tensas Reserves of NE Louisiana just to name a few, but she also seeks out and promotes others from the many organizations across America.

10 Lucky Girls will get to go for this Terrific Teal Hunt in the Pristine Marshes of Louisiana! This will include two fully guided morning hunts with tips included! My good friend Bobby Palermo will again host a hunt for the GIRLS! He and his wife Roberta have put together this package deal for another Fabulous “Girls Hunt Out”! This will be the fourth year we have taken a trip down to these beautiful marshes, and it is always one of the most laid back and peaceful trips of my year. The locals are so friendly and happy to share their little piece of heaven with a group of women for a few days!
Bobby and his wonderful wife Roberta operate the finest hotel in the area, L’Banca Albergo, which is Italian for “The Bank Hotel“, and it is rated 6 Star in my book! They took a historical bank and renovated it a few years back, with the vault now a Wine Vault, and the Drive Thru Window still intact for one of the rooms! So elegant, warm and cozy!.
See some pics here of the luxurious lodging!
This area is considered the “Duck Hunting Capital of the World” and is truly one of the most beautiful places in the gorgeous Bayou State of Louisiana. See pics from the three previous hunts here:

What Happened on a Texas Whitetail Hunt for Women
This is a private ranch and Jerry has managed it closely for over 13 years. Access has always been restricted to family, close friends, a few celebrities (to include my good friend “Larry Weishuhn”) and an occasional hunt donated for charity. After many years of careful management of the wildlife of whitetail, fallow, axis & black buck within the 5000 acre ranch, they have begun to open it’s gates hunting opportunities to a chosen few! Come join us and you are destined to be treated like a Princess!
