About Jana Waller
I grew up hunting the pheasant fields and fishing the plentiful lakes of Wisconsin with my father. I picked up a bow during my Senior year in college and for the past 20 years, Iʼve been pursuing my passion for bowhunting.  I hold a special place in my heart for Midwest whitetails, but Iʼve also bow hunted elk, antelope, mule deer, bear, turkey,  African eland, hartebeest, blesbok and ostrich.  From elk and deer to all types of upland birds and waterfowl, I also enjoy rifle and shotgun hunting.  I was also introduced to bowfishing in 2009 and have since been blessed to bowfish everything from carp and catfish in Wisconsin to gators and sting rays in Florida and Louisianna.

Fishing comes in at a close second when it comes to my passions.  From float plane trips into the Canadian bush in search of monster pike and walleye, to fly fishing under Montanaʼs Big Sky, I never pass down an opportunity to wet a line.  Top water bass fishing is another favorite of mine and this past year I had the amazing opportunity of  tiger fishing on the Crocodile River in Africa.  

When Iʼm not in the woods or on the water, Iʼm designing skulls for art galleries and retail stores across the country. In 2007 I launched my website www.paintedskulls.com where you can see various designs from painted and beaded to pheasant feathered skulls.  From antelope to zebra and every skull in between, I love bringing the outdoors into my artwork. 

I also do custom designs for clients and itʼs so fun to hear the exciting  story behind every hunt or adventure.  Iʼm currently hosting my own hunting and fishing show called SKULL BOUND which features a strong conservation message on every episode.  From bowhunting Africa to fly fishing under the Big Sky, our show is aimed at encouraging viewers to partake in our countryʼs heritage of hunting, fishing and enjoying the great outdoors. Conservation is another one of my passions and Iʼm currently a member of Safari Club International,  Pheasants Forever, National Wild Turkey Federation, Ducks Unlimited,  Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Sportsman For Wildlife, and Trout Unlimited. 

I often donate skulls for their annual fund raisers and banquets which gives me the opportunity to see the money raised go right back into conservation.  Itʼs my goal that our show SKULL BOUND portray the undeniable fact that hunters are true animal lovers, stewards of the land and passionate about protecting and conserving our countryʼs  wildlife and habitat.  

Iʼve been freelance writing for hunting websites and magazines since 2005 and my articles have appeared in Bowhunter Magazine, Predator Xtreme, Texas Bowhunter's Journal, Turkey Country, Rack Magazine, Petersen's Bowhunting, CNN.com, Focus In The Wild and a variety of other outdoor blogs.  Iʼm a contributing writer for Womenhunters.com as well as Bowhunting.net and The Sportsman Channel blog.  I also Prostaff and am sponsored by Nosler, Kryptek, Vortex Optics, Tenzing Outdoors, Polaris, OnXmaps, Mathews, AMS Bowfishing, Smith Elite, Womenhunters.com, OnXmaps, Trophy Takers, and Les Schwab.
