A Sandpoint woman is asking for public support to help win a national hunting competition.

Amanda Lowrey, 25, is among the top four finalists in the 2014 Extreme Huntress Competition filmed in July in Texas. The episodes are currently running online, and will be televised on NBC Sports in November and December.

“This competition has turned into something much bigger than I ever imagined,” Lowrey said by email Wednesday. “It has opened up a world of doors.”

The competitors are judged on physical skill, judges’ scores and public vote. Lowrey, a Sandpoint mother of two, is in first place in physical skill tests but drags in third place for votes.

Five of ten episodes of the Extreme Huntress competition are online at Two episodes will be aired on NBC Sports at the end of the year.

Voting is open until Jan. 1 and will account for 30 percent of the competitor’s final score. The winner will be introduced at the Dallas Safari Club Convention on Jan. 10.
