SCI Diana Award Winner Suzie Brewster didn’t become passionate about hunting until later in life, but once she got started, she went all in—teaching hunting and shooting skills to hundreds of women.
A Discovered Passion For Hunting
Safari Club International (SCI) Diana Award winner Suzie Brewster grew up in small-town Oklahoma, but she didn’t become interested in firearms until she met her husband, former Congressman Bill Brewster, in college. For their first date, Bill invited Suzie on a dove hunt where she was assigned the role of “retriever.” After spending the day retrieving, she was inspired to learn to shoot and hunt with him. It wasn’t until they moved to Washington, D.C., for Bill’s political career, however, that Suzie developed a passion for the sport. She went on a hunting trip in Africa with Bill for their 30th wedding anniversary and ultimately fell in love.
The Confident Huntress
Everywhere Susie goes, she makes a difference. It is her confident and driven attitude that allows her to take charge. After the Brewsters moved to Washington D.C., Susie founded the Washington Women’s Shooting Club. Over the course of the next 20 years, Susie took more than 900 beginning shooters to a gun range to learn how to shoot. In 2011, where she received the prestigious SCI Diana Award for her exemplary ethics in the field, commitment to wildlife conservation and exceptional skills as a huntress.
