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.

Mike Wheeler has set aside these days for a “GIRLS HUNT OUT” and the price for this group of 6 women will be only $2,000 each! (This price only applies if we get all 6 women to fill up camp!) The price is a reduced for this 3 day hunt (normally 5 days @ $3,700) and because of the large group of women and Mikes willingness to give several women the chance of a lifetime for the Buck of her Dreams! Contact Mike Wheeler referring to the
Wonderful Whitetail Hunt for Women with Becky Lou
This hunt is OPEN to any WOMAN! I am very excited about going back to Kansas! I was on an archery hunt with the #Limbsaver Crew last November 2013 and out of 8 hunters, there was not one that did not have an opportunity at 130 – 180 class bucks! I passed on a huge buck deciding he may be too young.. I know they are there and I am hoping to take one home this year!!
Below is a photo of our group of women on a Turkey Hunt May of 2014, but as you can see in the background Mike manages land and produces MASSIVE BUCKS!
Below is the Buck Gary Sims harvested on the November 2013 Limbsaver Hunt @ Wheeler’s Whitetails, Mound City Kansas

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:

Dreams Come True of Louisiana, (www.dctofla.com ) regularly “hands out happiness” for kids with life threatening illnesses here in Louisiana. Josh Castille was one of those fortunate children. Josh has a rare life threatening disease that has yet to be firmly diagnosed. This condition qualified him as a “Dream Child” and his condition was submitted, reviewed and ultimately he qualified for a “Dream Kid”. His wish was to harvest a nice Whitetail Buck with a Bow. Although a challenge not easily taken, this young boy could have asked for anything and DCT was determined to do grant it. Along with several volunteers the arrangements were made with an outfitter, per Doctors orders a medical nurse volunteered to make the journey, and ultimately Josh’s dream became a reality. At the time of his hunt, there was no way to know how long Josh would live to see his next birthday, but God willing he is still with us and starts college this fall! The love and caring by DCT to Josh and his entire family touched them so deeply that Josh made a vow to do whatever he could to help raise awareness and funding for such a worthy organization. He envisioned an Archery Shoot with all proceeds to help fund Dreams Come True, and enable them to grant another child’s dream. This year will make the “4th Annual Archery Shoot for Dreams Comes True hosted by Josh Castille” and is scheduled for Saturday August 27. The location will be in SW Louisiana @ the lovely Lake Charles Archery Club ( http://www.lakecharlesarcheryclub.com/ ). Truly a first class range and one of the most beautiful ranges in the United States. They have just added some fabulous new 3D targets! There will be lots of food, drinks, silent auctions and prizes for winners! You can see the flyers with info and registration attached here, or go to www.dctofla.com for information. They are also in need of more prizes and silent auction items, so please consider donating to this great cause. (Tax information on attached flyers)
