Lisa likes the lively atmosphere and the diverse people at Kingscott.

Lisa’s husband got her into bow hunting in her 30s, and she’s been hooked ever since. Now an accomplished bow hunter, Lisa takes down game so big she needs help hauling her kill out of the woods. Not only does she shoot record-breakers, she also grows them. She attributes the success of her 7 ft. tomato plants to a particular variety and some well-guarded secrets.
