About Rebecca Francis
I was born and raised in Utah. As a young child, I grew up hunting with my father and brothers every year. My love for the outdoors flourished as I spent time every year hunting, camping, fishing, boating, hiking etc. I married my husband when I was 22, and instantly became a mother of 5 young children.

I am now 41 and a grandmother to eight beautiful souls, with number nine on the way. Continue reading Rebecca Francis “Hunter”
