Hey guys what do you do with your wife when she comes out late with only 45 minuntes of hunting time? Gets in her deer stand, and 15 minutes later she takes and 10pt. 255 lbs 21 1/2" spread Il Whitetail. I sat in my stand for 3 hours saw nothing and it was only about 10 degrees out. Darn the luck.
Well this is what I did. I kissed her and told her I was very proud of her. She is still giving me a hard time because the two trouphys I have are two 135 class 8rt. Popers. She is my hunting budy, and good looking to. As you can tell I'm still very proud of her, and plan to keep hunting with her.
you should hunt in the same stand, sounds like the big bucks are atracted to her to. My wife went bow hunting the first time and shot a nice buck right behind the house when I was way out in the sticks, never heard the end of that one. Then she decided to try rifle hunting, built her a stand and opening morning she shot a nice 8 point before sunrise. She then got out of her stand and walked over to my stand and said I just killed a buck, it's dead on the trail, I dont see what thrill you get in that and back to the house she went, never to rifle hunt again.Now she bow hunts only, more of a challenge to her. I love that women!
Unforunatly, my wife does not hunt, but she supports my hobby like no non hunter I have ever seen before. She knows that the fall and winter are my times to go out(when I am not busy as a gunsmith)hunting, and the spring and summer I go coyote and praire dog hunting. She has never complained, and we will celebarte 21 years of marriage in April. I support her hobbies and show a vested interst. (the only drawback is she will NOT let me put my mounts in the living room or bedroom). If my wife did what Sgt. dale's wife did I would take her out foe a steak dinner, and then I would try to talk her into putting the mounts in the living room.LOL...John
