The Droptine Divas go to outdoor shows around the country to promote their group. “[Women] come up to us and even if they don’t hunt, they see our booth and they’re like awe, that’s really cool,” Katie says. “There’s not really a lot of groups like ours.”

The Divas are planning to be featured in a new show on the Sportsman’s Channel called “Workin’ for Whitetails” in 2011. “It is women hosted and the majority of the hunts are by women, but most importantly we focus on the family aspect and tradition of hunting and getting kids involved in the sport. Without kids to carry on the sport, it will die,” Seiler says.

“Some guys see us and are kind of rude. They don’t take us seriously,” Katie says about the Droptine Divas. “But most guys are pretty cool with it.”

“I got my first deer when I was 12, a tiny doe, but I didn’t care. Hunting and fishing are like all I do now,” Katie says.
