Rachel Leitch of Moorhead can’t remember a time when she wasn’t a hunter.
Since she could walk, Leitch’s dad took her to the deer stand each hunting season.
“Everyone knows me as the girl who hunts,” the 16-year-old said.
Hunting, often seen as a men’s hobby, is a popular pastime for many women.
According to North Dakota Game and Fish, 13 percent of license applicants this year were women. Minnesota numbers were not immediately available.
