"People have failure. People should know that. If they come into this and think they're going to have a 100% success—they're not. Learning from your failures makes you a better hunter. And that has to happen."
— Kimmi Greentree
Some of you know today’s guest because of her husband. But in a little over an hour, you’ll see she stands out on her own.
Prior to my interview, I admired Kimmi Greentree's authenticity and self awareness. Her social media profiles are hilarious and I liked her. But in a very impersonal way, similar to how you might think a comedian is funny. Or how you might like to follow a social media account because they post good memes.
But after this conversation, I really connected with that authenticity, and saw it being applied into the outdoors space. She doesn’t apologize for her feelings. She doesn’t apologize for not knowing something. She doesn’t apologize for disagreement, even with her husband. She doesn’t apologize for her experiences.
Kimmi is Adam Greentree’s wife. Many of you will know Adam as the bowhunter who’s blown up recently. He’s been on Joe Rogan quite a bit, which I know a lot of you enjoy, as do I. I wanted to know what it’s like to have a family, and a husband who's traveling all over the globe hunting.
We're going to talk life, loss, love, and more in this show. And it's a fantastic conversation.

This episode of Restless Native is brought to you by Houston Safari Club Foundation. GoWild is working with Houston Safari Club Foundation, and you know about some of the conservation efforts this group participates in.
This is an amazing organization, that is not only funding conservation efforts, they’re helping kids further their education, learn how to get outdoors and actively tackle R3 efforts.
Houston Safari Club Foundation has put $2.1 million into scholarships for hunters. That is, they are paying for scholarships to kids who are proven outdoors enthusiasts with hunting backgrounds. These are future decision makers and educators. They tackle Hunter Recruitment first hand with outdoor programs that have introduced hundreds of students to hunting experiences and career opportunities.
Houston Safari Club Foundation has also provided $3.5 million in hunter-funded programs for habitat and wildlife improvements, anti-poaching and outdoor education.
Members can connect with individuals from diverse fields, sharing a passion for hunting. Go back and listen to Joe’s interview if you missed it—he talks about all kinds of amazing events they host for these efforts.
Members also enjoy an active community, with monthly events and of course, the annual convention where members gather to socialize and share experiences.
