Elkford Extreme Huntress needs your votes

Elkford resident Erica Forsyth is competing for the coveted Extreme Huntress title.

Elkford resident Erica Forsyth is competing for the coveted Extreme Huntress title and needs the communities’ help to do so.

The hunter competed in a week long expedition in Texas in July, in which she and five other competitors were filmed. The episodes are released every Monday and Thursday at 6:30 MST, allowing for people to vote for their favourite huntress.

“It is all on votes and everything else. So I got picked to be in the top six and then we all went and competed in Texas,” said Forsyth in an interview with The Free Press.

“It was really fun and we learned a crazy amount of stuff because there are African Animals down there.”

Currently, Forsyth is in second place, with just over 1,800 votes. The voting for each episode is open until the next episode is released, with all voting closing on Jan. 1, 2016. The winner will be announced on Jan. 9 at the Dallas Safari Club’s awards dinner in Texas, which Forsyth plans to attend.
