Angie Kokes was raised at the foot of the Nebraska Sandhills by a family who loved the outdoors, hunting and fishing. Of course she learned early on that if you want something you are going to have to work for it. After all, she attributes the character and values she has today to being raised with a never quit attitude.
Angie began hunting and fishing at a very young age. Not only tagging along with her dad for any hunt he’d take her along on. But also with her family and grandparents on weekend fishing trips. She hunted and fished all through grade school and high school. Not to mention,her first year of college she made enough money selling furs to make her very first rifle purchase.
Farming and Ranching
Married to her husband Adam, the two hunt, fish, trap and are full time farmers and ranchers. The couple also own and operate a AK Creations Tack & Trailer Sales. Consequently, as a farmer and rancher Angie says being in the outdoors is not just a weekend event. In fact it is everyday life. Angie’s home is situated on the North Loup River. As a matter of fact, it is close proximity to 3 amazing lakes. And of course she takes full advantage of all of the hunting, trapping and fishing the area has to offer. She embraces the life she has been blessed with on the farm. And likewise, the ability to witness nature in all it’s splendor all day, everyday.
An Avid Outdoorswoman
While Angie is most passionate about bow hunting, she will tell you if it can be hunted she either hunts it already or will be trying it in the future. Coupled with her love of bow hunting whitetail and mule deer, equally high up are duck & goose hunting, upland game birds, dove hunting, calling coyotes, raccoon hunting, and hog hunting! Additionally when she’s not hunting you will find her on the river or lake somewhere fishing. Overall, if it’s outdoors you’ll find Angie somewhere near by!
