Welcome to Country Tough with Brandy Von Holten. I have to take a back seat to today's very distinguished guest, Brenda Valentine, the First Lady of Hunting. Brenda has been the host of multiple TV shows: Turkey Country and Bass Pro Shop/Outdoor World. She has modeled hunting attire and even authored a book titled "Hunting MisAdventures with the First Lady of Hunting". Brenda was even riding a saddle made with the hid of a Cape Buffalo she hunted in Africa. This woman is in her own league of coolness!
