About Nathalie

Nathalie lives with her husband, son and two dogs – foraging and hunting to put delicious dishes on the family dinner table.

“Growing up in the country with animals and nature constantly present has really shaped me and how I live today. Ever since I was little, I have accompanied my parents in the forest – hunting, picking berries and mushrooms and I’ve learned a lot about plants and animals”.

Living Close to Nature is a Must for me

“When I have shot a game, my son often joins in the butchering. He thinks it’s fun and I recognize myself as a child in him. He asks a lot and wants to know everything. I like to tell stories and try to convey the same feeling that my father conveyed to me. It also feels so good to teach him where food comes from and why you hunt”.

What does International Women’s Day mean to me

“I do not label myself as a "female hunter". I'm a hunter. Nothing more, nothing less. It´s a mindset I´ve always had and I hope I can inspire more women who are interested in hunting to take the plunge. Don´t be afraid because of the fact that hunting is a male dominated industry. See it as an advantage! We have a lot to contribute and my experience is that most hunting teams would like to bring in more women to get a better dynamic in the team.”
