Rebecca Francis was sitting around the fire in hunting camps before she could walk. She was introduced to hunting as a young child by her father, brother and late grandfather. Her love for hunting and the outdoors quickly became a passion. Rebecca is a highly accomplished archer who has conquered some of the most extreme challenges in hunting. The majority of her successful hunts have been taken with her bow, including a 42 1/2 inch Dall ram, rocky mountain bighorn ram, desert bighorn ram, two Alaskan brown bears, mule deer, whitetail deer, elk, moose, mountain goat, buffalo, black bear, turkey, hogs and many African plains game. Rebecca was the 2010 Extreme Huntress winner, is a TV personality and outdoor freelance writer. She has been featured in Muley Crazy, Deer & Wildlife Alliance, Mule Deer Foundation, Sportsman for Fish & Wildlife, Women’s Outdoor News, Adventure Woman, Huntonly.com, and is a regular contributor to bowhunting.net. She also pro-staffs for her favorite hunting clothing line, Prois Outdoor Apparel. Her newest job is co-owning Alti2ude Outdoors with David Long. They hope to create a positive community of serious, hardcore hunters, both men and women alike. Rebecca loves fitness and has competed in marathons, half- marathons, triathlons and endurance bike races, all of which help her stay in shape for hunting season. Rebecca treasures her time hunting with her children and family, and is continually promoting and supporting women who hunt.
David Long is all about one thing – big bruiser mule deer. David has been involved with the hunting industry for over 20 years and is one of the co-founders of Alti2ude Outdoors. During his tenure within the industry, he has many accomplishments, which include: former editor of Eastmans’ Bowhunting Journal, co-author of the book Wyoming’s Finest Mule Deer, author of Public Land Mulies – The Bottom Line (which is one of the top selling mule deer hunting books of all time), and produced the extremely popular mule deer video series – Magnum Mulies.
