Huntress Nikita makes final six

Nikita Dalke is heading to Texas for a head-to-head competition for the title of Extreme Huntress

A Cranbrook woman competing for the title of Extreme Huntress has been confirmed as one of six finalists in the worldwide competition.

Nikita Dalke, a mother of two, was named in the top six on June 4 and is now preparing to travel to Texas to take part in the final competition.

Extreme Huntress looks for a female hunter who will be a role model for other women who participate in hunting.

Online voting was carried out in May to narrow down the 20 semifinalists to just six.

Nikita is the only Canadian to make the finals, and she is joined by women from South Africa, Sweden, Australia, Montana and Texas.

Now Nikita is preparing to head to Dallas, Texas on July 8 to compete in a hunt and head-to-head skills competition at the 777 Ranch in Hondo, Texas.

“I’m very excited. There are animals there that I have never seen before,” said Nikita.

She has been busy training for the competition by practicing shooting and hitting the gym.

“I have learned some about the other competitors but I’m just trying to focus on me and working on my skills and doing my best while I’m there.”

The competition will be filmed for 13 episodes of Eye of the Hunter. Those episodes will begin airing in October and will be available for Canadian viewers at the website, www.extremehuntress.com.

“It’s exciting and nerve-wracking to think that I’ll be on TV. It adds some pressure!” said Nikita.

The woman who receives the title of Extreme Huntress 2015 will be decided in January. The scoring is made up of online voting once the episodes begin to air, scores from the skills competition, and judges’ scores.
