even practiced walking like him. As we
grew up, there were a lot of things girls
could do outdoors, but hunting wasn't
one of them."
For years she watched as her father
and brothers - Dan and Tim - left home
to hunt. Since she couldn't go with them,
she always looked forward to their return.
"I was always the one most excited
when Dad would get something and
bring it home; I couldn't wait!" Sister
John Paul recalled.
Despite her obvious interest in hunting, young Connie never got her chance.
"It was just understood that girls
didn't do that," she noted. "You know,
you never even asked, because it was a
different time."
After graduating high school, Connie
continued her education. First, she
attended the Hamet Medical Center
Nursing School in Erie, then served as a
nurse in the U.S. Navy and continued her

Changing Times
While Sister John Paul Bauer grew
up in an era when few women hunted,
the number of females joining the
ranks is increasing in Pennsylvania
at a record pace. Halfway through
the 2015-16 season, the number of
female hunters already represented
yet another increase.

education at Marymount University in
Arlington, Va., University of Maryland,
and St. John's University in Minnesota.
She retired as a counseling psychologist
after 21 years with the U.S. Navy and
U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
She had seen a lot of the world - even
Iceland. But Connie missed home, and
the woods. She thought fondly of her
younger years, watching the Kinzua Dam
being built; piling into her uncle's van to
go see elk; shooting BB guns; ice skating.
She wanted to get back to her rural roots.

A New Commitment
After her return, she found work in
Elk County's catholic schools, first as a
phys ed teacher and later as a counselor
and theology teacher. She became a nun
in 2002.
"I pushed it off for a long time," Sister
John Paul said.
Her arrival was a blessing for Sister
Jacinta, who had prayed for Connie after
her airplane accident in the military,
and later worked with her occasionally
doing chores around the convent, fondly
referred to as "the community" by both
women. But Sister Jacinta wasn't at the
convent when Sister John Paul joined the
team. She was in California donating one
of her kidneys to her ailing sister, Maryann, and heard about Connie's entry over
the telephone.
Still, the news was somewhat of a
surprise to Sister Jacinta, who recounted
a time when Connie and she had a discussion about wearing habits, the traditional
clothing worn by nuns.
"Connie asked me, 'How can you
wear that habit all the time?' and I told her
it's so much easier than wearing pants."
"I can't imagine giving up my pants,"
Connie told her.
But she eventually did trade one for
