Like most college students, Haley Dunn leads a very busy life. As a 23-year-old recent graduate from University of Missouri—Columbia with an Agriculture Business Management degree, she has been active in FFA, 4-H, band, student council and athletics. She is involved with her church and social life and works for the family business guiding hunts and managing the club house. Oh yes, and she shoots too.

So well in fact, that Haley just returned from the 2008 World Cup in Beijing, China with the bronze medal in International Skeet Shooting. And that’s something not every college senior can brag about.

“I was really excited to come out of this World Cup with a medal,” said Haley. “This is one of the toughest competitions of the year because all the Olympians and alternates from every country are there. To come out third was exciting.”

She has a passion for the shooting and hunting sports and helps the industry by supporting firearms and hunting. Since January, 2006, she has been a member of the local Hunting Pro Team for Bass Pro Shops in Columbia, Missouri. She was recently selected to be a member of the Bass Pro Shops Next Generation Pro Staff which includes filming for the TV show of the same name.

She works hard to promote shooting and hunting with women and youth as well as men. Some of her accomplishments include a gold medal for the 2007 Pan American games, a silver for the Dominican Republic World Cup in 2007 and a first place finish for the 2007 World Championship Team selection. So far, in 2008 she has been the Miami Cup Women’s Champion and the Barbados Open Women’s Champion. And now, the Bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing World Cup.
