Ashlee Lundvall with her 2015 Antelope.

Motivational Speaker, author, and outdoorswoman, Ashlee Lundvall joins this episode! She shares some of the hunting knowledge she has learned over the years, specifically about antelope hunting. Much of what she has learned about antelope hunting is from participating in the Wyoming Women’s Antelope hunt for the first time in 2014. She is now a volunteer for the organization and on the Alumnae committee.

Lundvall is also passionate about accessibility to the outdoors. After a ranch accident in 1999 left her paralyzed, she made it her mission to redefine her life by helping others who may have similar circumstances. Lundvall shares her perspective of hunting in her Action Trackchair and how she preps for a hunting trip.

“The important things about accessibility that people have to realize is that it ends up being a lot more work for people with disabilities, but its so worth it in the long run. And that really starts with the prep,” Lundvall said.

In May 2018 she was also appointed by Pres. Trump for a two-year term to the President's Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition.
