Born and Raised on the Central Coast of British Columbia; Shannon Lansdowne has always been surrounded by the hunting industry. Her father Leonard Ellis owned one of the largest outfitting territories in British Columbia; Bella Coola Outfitting Company. Growing up on the BC Coast she was exposed to hunting and fishing both personally and professionally. Upon completion of high school she committed her time to working in the family business. After a short time of deck handing on board the MV Pacific Grizzly, she moved on to guiding hunters from around the world in pursuit of Grizzly Bear, Black Bear, Mountain Goat and Wolves. During summer months you would find Shannon trolling with guests in search of the next big Spring Salmon on the outer BC Coast.
In 2015 she submitted her application to the Extreme Huntress Contest and to her surprise she made the semi finals, then the Finals and after proving herself to both the judges and the hunting community she won the title of Extreme Huntress 2016. Following the win Shannon teamed up with Remington Country TV as Co- Host, Girls with Guns, Safari Club International as a Spokesperson and Brittany Boddington as the Co-founder of She Hunts Skills Camp.
