Born from competition…..
Set the scene at Mitchell Deer Camp in Cale, AR in 1998. A group of families come together at the ‘main camp’ building to have a potluck style dinner, a smorgasbord of casseroles, desserts, and venison summer sausage. The guys have practically wallpapered the ‘main camp’ building with their years and years of kills. As Rita (the founder of Buck Girl) looks around, she thinks to herself, “Well, this just won’t do.” Rita emptied a section of one of the walls at main camp, created a banner that said The Buck Girls, and posted her first kill at the top. The wall grew year after year as new members joined and as their daughters started learning to hunt. Being the competitively spirited woman she is, Rita couldn’t leave her hunting pride and winning team at deer camp, so she created hats, truck decals, and zip up jackets with BUCK GIRL.
Enough of our fellow sisters across Arkansas started asking, “That’s so cute! Where did you get it?” We printed a small run of shirts, hats, and decals in January of 2005 for a hunting show, and the rest is history. Now, there are Buck Girls all over this land! We are mothers, sisters, wives, and friends. We love the outdoors, we love hunting and fishing, we love our families, and we love our country. If you’ve ever wondered how in the world this got started, now you know, and now you are a part of our family.
We appreciate your continued support, thank you so much.
