you bagged your Thanksgiving turkey yourself
you can fly fish without whipping your fly off your tippet and then being able to retye your fly without calling the instructor
you have to change your outfits more than two times in a weekend
if you aren't afraid to eat something you and 15 other women just made and had your fingers in
you'd rather be hunting than at home watching T.V.
sleeping outdoors in 40 degree weather is fun
you're a nature goddess
you enjoy meeting other women, learning new things and having fun on the "Wild Side"
if you have camo upholstery
you can fall out of a canoe and come out of the water with your glasses still on!
you bug everyone to take a picture of you holding your first fish, you paddling during your first canoe ride, and the .22 pistol you just learned to shoot
if the biggest fish you and your new friend have ever seen just breaks your line and you both fall down screaming on the dock "What the heck was that?!!"
most of the items on your Christmas list can be found at Cabela's and your primary fashion colors are camo and hunter orange
you've ever had your hair "cut" by the campfire
you find animal bones and immediately start thinking about what kind of cool jewelry you could make
you learn that socks make good pot holders around the campfire
you're ok with having bruises on your arms and shoulders from your first shotgun shooting experience
you can shoot an azimuth, count paces, and know if you're on a ridge or in a valley and not get lost!
if your child or grandchild has a camo bunting
