Huntin’ ain’t just ‘fer old bearded guys who chew tobacco, drink Jack Daniels and go to the woods just to kill somethin’.

Of course, that silly stereotype espoused by the anti-hunting public is even less true today.

In fact, hunting isn’t just for guys, period.

It’s become a woman’s world, too.

The numbers don’t lie. In Indiana, the number of women who bought hunting licenses soared by 93 percent from 2006 to 2014.

It’s a national trend, too. A National Sporting Goods Association survey showed that the number of female hunters has risen 85 percent from 2001 to 2013.

When Tom Kline went to bed one night a couple of weeks ago, his 2005 Ranger Bass Boat was parked in his home driveway near the St. Joseph River in Osceola.

When he awoke the next morning, it was gone. Someone had sneaked into his drive under the cover of darkness, hooked the boat onto a tow vehicle and slipped away.

Kline hasn’t been the only target of thieves this summer. They have been working overtime in the South Bend area, said South Bend Police Detective Wayne Boocher.

Another bass boat was stolen from a neighborhood on the other side of the river.
