Peggy Anne Vallery

Traversing five continents in search of the most challenging hunts, Vallery has succeeded where few women have and has devoted her life to the conservation of animals. Vallery’s hunting career began in Tucson, Arizona and within a period of twelve to fourteen years, she took 109 species, her desired trophy collection. She was given the Safari Club International Outstanding Achievement Award as the first woman to ever take an elephant in Southwest Africa in 1979. In 1981, Vallery was the first woman from the western hemisphere to ever hunt in Bulgaria and also the first western woman to hunt in Korea. She was also the first woman from the western hemisphere to hunt in the People’s Republic of China. While in Australia, Vallery made history as the first woman to take a banting. Vallery has also been successful fishing and enjoys deep sea, lake and fly fishing. Vallery’s expertise has enabled her to be an integral part of numerous organizations such as, Quail Unlimited, Safari Club International, International Wildlife Foundation, Grand National Waterfowl Association, and president of the National Wild Turkey Federation. Vallery has shared her experiences and represented organizations on television, and in magazines and is currently penning a book about her unique experiences.
