Eva Shockey grew up expecting to be a dancer like her glamorous mother. But something about spending family vacations RV-ing across North America and going on hunts with her dad sparked in her an enduring passion for a different way of life.
In Taking Aim, Eva tells a very personal story of choosing the less-traveled path to a rewarding life in outdoor pursuits like hunting and fishing. For her, as her millions of fans can attest, that has meant hunting as a way of harvesting food, caring deeply about conservation, sustainability and healthy eating, and getting closer to God in nature.
In this riveting memoir for the adventurer in all of us, Eva takes listeners along as she hunts caribou on the rugged Aleutian Islands, tracks a 1500-pound bull moose across the unforgiving Yukon, and meets many other challenges of a life in the wild.
Along the way we learn that hunting is about so much more than pulling a trigger. "My story is about discovering your dream," writes Eva. "It's about following your passion, mastering your skills, taking aim no matter who thinks you're crazy...and then letting the arrow fly. If you've done all you can, I can tell you that you're almost certain to hit your mark."
Whether you're a lifelong hunter or a city dweller who has never set foot in the wilderness, Eva's story delivers an empowering message about rejecting stereotypes and expectations, believing in yourself, and finding the courage to pursue what you care about most.

Recap of Eva’s social media
It’s a decent read(Listen) but if you follow Eva’s journey on Social Media, you have (mostly) what the book is already. HOWEVER, I’d say it’s worth diving into. Overall, she’s an excellent ambassador to hunting and for women hunters. This book would mostly benefit non hunters or less experienced hunters. The challenge would be to get this book into the non hunters hands.
Exciting stories, good details to those stories, and a fun backstory to growing up as a Shockey. Shes a positive storyteller with an almost kid like enthusiasm. Congrats on what you’ve done and I look forward to what you’ll become, Eva. I enjoyed listening to your stories and hearing how you pace your own path.
