Tes Randle Jolly: Breaking Down Barriers


MERIDIAN — Imagine the Possibilities

    Some accomplishments that highlight Tes’ talents were winning a Pinnacle award for the best magazine story in the Professional Media Association’s excellence in craft awards, and multiple first place awards in the Southeastern Outdoor Press Association contests.

    The consummate outdoorswoman spends much time in the outdoors photographing wildlife and teaching other ladies about the thrill of the outdoors. “I coordinate and help with a lot of outings with ladies in the Becoming an Outdoorswoman program,” said Jolly. “That program has broken down a lot of barriers for women getting into the outdoors. It’s not about killing, it’s about being out there, and we never make them feel like they have to kill something,” Jolly said. “These days I recycle deer and turkeys with my camera and manage the farm for turkeys.”

    “Being in the outdoors and photographing wildlife and nature really lets me get close to wildlife and share it with others,” said Jolly. “I do it for my own enjoyment but being able to share what I experience out there in magazines, books and calendars is what is fulfilling to me, just sharing my knowledge and beauty of the outdoors.” Take it from Tes; carry someone hunting and introduce them to the outdoors and pass on our hunting heritage!
