Victoria Jackson's Bio
|Staff - Meet the Ladies|
Welcome to my bio and thanks for taking the time to read a little bit about me. I had
barely started walking when my parents had me out in the Indian River, in a boat
named the “Grey Ghost” to catch my first fish (a Sea Trout) I guess you could say ever
since then I have been hooked. Hooked on the outdoors that is!
I am a true southern girl and a proud native of Ft. Pierce, Florida. Florida will always
be the place I call home (and home to my fondest fishing memories .), Growing up, we
moved a lot: including Georgia, Texas and Upstate New York. Moving to so many
diverse cities and states has opened my eyes to the beauties of each place. Georgia is
where my Southern roots grew stronger, I enjoyed fossil hunting for the first time in
the thick marshland of Savannah. It was after our move to Texas when I was 11 where
I first learned to shoot. I was involved in competitive gymnastics and, became a certified
scuba diver there. At 13, we moved to Upstate New York in the foothills of the Catskill
Mountains; that’s where I where I found my passion for hunting. The first hunt I went
on was an eastern turkey hunt, with the man who opened my eyes to the beauty of it all:
my dad. That day in 2007 when I harvested not one, but two Tom turkeys in one shot, I
felt very blessed and overwhelmed with an adrenaline rush unlike any other.
Listening to nature wake up in the morning is only half the fun, The cmaraderie
fellow hunters/huntresses and their families share after a day out in the woods is
something to be treasured. Since that time, turkey hunting has become my true passion,
and I hope to complete my Turkey Grand Slam with my dad this coming 2011 season.
I have been learning to bow hunt this past year and hope to harvest my first deer in
the upcoming season.
In 2010, I became a proud graduate of Florida State University (GO NOLES!!!),
with a Bachelor’s in Editing, Writing and Media with a minor in Communications and
Anthropology. I began writing for Women Hunters while attending FSU, and was
involved in numerous campus activities such as Delta Zeta Sorority, Homecoming
Committee, and two years as an intern with the Sports Information Office. It is my goal
to use my passion for the outdoors and sports, along with my education in media to
pursue a career in the outdoor television field. I also have a design line of turkey feather
jewelry, and launched my first website this past March at www.turkeytreasures.com.
My passion and love has always been in the outdoors, whether it be fishing,
scuba diving, hunting, hiking, snowboarding or laying on the beach. To work for an
Outdoor Television Network has always been a dream of mine and would be a great
privilege, I hope to make my dream a reality one day.
Thanks Mom and Dad, for getting me outside and teaching me about the
blessings of an outdoor life!
