Women are known to love shopping, but would you expect them to be the primary shoppers at a hunting apparel company? Well, they are. And they aren’t just buying clothes for their husbands and children. The women’s line is the fastest growing of all the Legendary Whitetails clothing lines and the merchandising team is working hard to give them what they want.
In a recent radio interview with 620 WTMJ, director of merchandising, Mitch Huffman talks about the growing number of women interested in the sport and outdoors in general.
WTMJ: So why have women’s interests in hunting fashion increased in this male-dominated sport?
Mitch: I believe more and more women are getting involved in the sport. In the past, women were forced to wear men’s clothing that didn’t fit very well. It is just not going to be a pleasant experience when you’re wearing something that’s completely oversized and you’re trying to walk miles, and in some cases, in the woods. If you’re having a bad experience, or you’re uncomfortable and you’re sitting in your stand for hours, you’re more likely to want to give up.
Mitch: Retailers, including us, are spending more and more time making sure that we’re representing the women correctly, and we’re asking the right questions, going out to the market and asking, what do women want?
