Saint Hugh's Story
Saint Hugh is an abbreviation for Saint Hubert (or Saint Hubertus), a Christian saint and the eighth century Bishop of Liège. Saint Hubert is the patron saint of hunters.
Saint Hubert is regarded as the father of humane hunting. He created the following humane hunting guidelines:
- only shoot when a humane, quick kill is assured,
- don’t shoot mothers nursing their young, and
- only shoot animals past their breeding age, to ensure wildlife is conserved.
We admire Saint Hubert’s vision of ethical hunting and are proud to bear his name.
Emily Degan founded Saint Hugh in 2016.
She grew up duck hunting with her dad in southeastern Louisiana and from a young age noted the gender disparity among hunters. It was never more obvious than when she attempted to buy hunting gear and was unable to find suitable products for women.
After graduating from the University of Notre Dame and gaining business experience at Deloitte, Emily took it upon herself to change that.
She and her goldendoodle, Winnie, live in New Orleans where Saint Hugh is headquartered.
