Even lukewarm country music fans know Miranda Lambert is a passionate outdoorswoman. But we bet a few of the other names on this list of female celebrities that hunt will surprise you.
Miranda Lambert, Country Music Singer
Miranda is authentic as it gets. She takes breaks from her tour to go fishing in Alaska, hunts wild hog with her bow for Thanksgiving dinner. And, no surprise, at her wedding they served venison which… she harvested herself.
Eliza Dushku, Actress
Bow hunting is something she doesn’t speak about often, but Eliza Dushku reports only hunting what she intends to eat (which PETA is giving her a hard time about).
Eva Longoria, Actress
Though she is walking back from a movie set in this picture – Eva has hunted many different animals including deer and turkey. She faced criticism when she talked on Oprah about going hunting with her father growing up, saying that she could “skin a deer and a pig and a snake – and rabbits.”
Kate Middleton, Princess
Kate got into some hot water with animal activists and the British press when it was reported that she had taken up hunting with the Royals in 2007.
“Eyewitnesses said Miss Middleton showed a remarkable level of confidence as she chatted enthusiastically with the future king while he showed her the ropes.
As she lay prone in the heather with her rifle, which had been fitted with telescopic sights and a silencer to allow her to shoot a stag a mile off, she appeared completely at ease as Charles’s ghillies talked her through the firing procedure.”
Avril Lavigne, Pop/Rock Singer
We’re not sure if she’s still out in the field much these days, but Avril grew up in Canada hunting deer with her father and brother – and she’s even recently listed it as one of her favorite things to do.
Rosie Huntingdon – Whiteley, Model & Actress
Growing up with her parents in rural England she states, “I come from a farm in the middle of nowhere… I’ve shot a few pheasants and a few rabbits. I’m probably gonna be hated for that. Everything gets eaten on the farm. It’s where food comes from.”
Kristy Lee Cook, Singer and former American Idol Finalist
A singer and former American Idol finalist, Kristy Lee Cook is also a lifelong outdoorswoman. She made waves in 2010 with her hunting TV show Goin’ Country.
