“Passion” is something very evident when describing Julie! An Indiana native, Julie has had a passion for living life to the fullest and has excelled in many different endeavors. While earning her bachelor’s in business administration from the University of Missouri she found time to have a record setting career as a 4-year starter for the women’s basketball program. Following her college career, she married her high school sweetheart, Brandon and together they have passed down the love and respect for hunting to their two children, John and Madison.
Chapman is a licensed Healthcare Administrator where she owns and operates a skilled nursing facility in Southern Indiana. Additionally, she and her husband own and manage several other successful businesses within the community. Julie is a high energy, enthusiastic person that doesn’t back down from a challenge. She and her husband created Graveyard Outdoors to provide opportunities for children form the surrounding counties to experience the outdoors. Annual events for children include turkey hunts, dove hunts, pheasant hunts, archery events, shooting sports, fishing days, and waterfowl banding.
The intense enthusiasm for the outdoors has led to many different opportunities to serve at a grass roots level with conservation organizations. Julie led the state with record setting financial achievements while serving as the Ducks Unlimited Chairman for three consecutive years. NWTF, RMEF, NRA, Florida Tarpon Anglers Association, and Physically Challenged Bowhunters Association are just a few of the organizations.
The love of wild sheep began with the harvest of her first desert sheep. Jack O’Connor said it best when he said, “There is no halfway. After his first exposure, a man is either a sheep hunter or he isn’t. He either falls under the spell of sheep hunting and sheep country or he won’t be caught dead on another sheep mountain.” Obviously, Julie is all in and there is no “HALFWAY” when it comes to the passion and energy needed to continue the mission of the Wild Sheep Foundation.
Julie received letters of support from: Iowa FNAWS, Vern Bleich (WSF PRAB), Mervyn’s Yukon Outfitting and Adam Bronson/EPIC Outdoors.
