Tina Dokken

Pro Staff

Although Tina is originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin and a die-hard Packer fan, she decided to attend Kansas University where she completed a business degree and played on the woman’s golf team.  After graduation, she spent 13 years in corporate sales and also coached basketball and golf.  Through her coaching experiences she realized a passion for teaching, so she decided to leave the corporate world to become a middle school math teacher. 


Sixteen years ago, she was introduced to the sport of hunting after meeting her husband at Game Fair, a hunting-shooting trade show in Anoka, Minnesota.  Tina’s husband lined her up with a shooting instructor and made sure she had a proper fitting gun and hunting gear.  In addition, he also trained her dogs to hunt.  Watching her dogs work birds is what motivates Tina to keep on hunting.  It is her love for her dogs and the joy she gets from watching them retrieve that keeps her searching for more hunting opportunities.  She now spends her summers training her dogs with her husband Tom, a world-renowned dog trainer.  In addition to waterfowl and upland birds, Tina bow hunts for deer and turkey.


Tina used her husband’s cut-down shotguns, so she was excited and very honored when Franchi invited her to join their pro-staff to participate in the introduction of the first gun ever made for women- the Catalyst line.  The enjoyment she has for hunting and her dogs is what inspires her to continue to encourage girls and women to get involved in the sport.
