Toting a shotgun and trailing her pointing dogs, Nancy Anisfield is in her element hunting ruffed grouse, woodcock, pheasants and other game birds.
"That's my passion," she said.
She's also a photographer, outdoor writer and former commercial illustrator and English teacher.
And a trailblazer.
Anisfield, 59, of Vermont, is one of three women on Pheasant Forever's 17-member board of directors -- the largest female contingent since the Minnesota-based national conservation group was launched here in 1982.
