CRYSTAL MARIE IS THE WINNER OF OUR “OUTDOOR DIVA OF THE YEAR” contest...

gaining the most online votes out of a field of 11 candidates who all were former “Diva of the Month” winners over the past year.

Crystal will receive merchandise donated by Strung Out Clothing and Anchor Point Apparel.

At a very young age, Crystal Marie began hog hunting in Florida with her father, Jeff, an avid hog-dog hunter who not only hunted with dogs, but bred them as well. This allowed Crystal to learn a great deal about little-known breeds and hunting methods.

As an adult, Crystal continued her hog-hunting passion by becoming the spokesperson and model for Razorback Outfitters. Later, Crystal took on trophy-size stingrays and trophy alligators as spokesperson and pro-staffer for Florida Bowfishing Charters, and she now has a long list of modeling and promotional appearances on her resume.

DIVA RUNNERS-UP

Lisha LeCouris is the first runner-up in the “Diva of the Year” contest, while Taylor Kennedy is the second runner-up in this year’s online voting.

“I was born and raised in the small, good ol’ town of Crystal River, where there’s not much else to do other than fish, hunt or get a little dirty at the mud hole,” Lisha said. “I’m not complaining, because there’s nothin’ more fun than that!”

Lisha grew up with the boys and has never been the “girly-girl type.” “I love anything that involves being outdoors. I love huntin’ for whitetails, but I must say hog huntin’ is my favorite! There isn’t a better adrenaline rush than hearing that hog squealin’ in the woods!” Lisha added.

February “Diva of the Month” Taylor Kennedy, from Keystone Heights, Fla., is a self-described “Southern Belle” who likes to hunt, fish and play in any mud hole she can find, go to church with her friends, play the guitar, shop and compete in pageants.

But there’s more to this boggin’ beauty than meets the eye. The high school senior volunteers with the local garden club, food bank and various other organizations, while also being dual enrolled in college and carrying a 3.8 GPA.
