Went out to the lease this last Wednesday since I had a few days before I start a new job. I got a call from my wife on Friday and she told me she was thinking about coming up to the lease. One of my buddies came up Friday and he brought his wife with him to the lease. I called my wife and let her know she would not be the only woman in camp and that sealed the deal, she was coming. Luckily one of my other buddies was coming up Friday also and my wife was able to ride up with him. My wife has hunted with me one time about five years ago and shot a boar hog and got pretty excited then. It took me by surprise when she wanted to go hunting Saturday morning. We saw quite a few deer that morning but none she wanted to take. After the morning hunt I was able to show her around the whole lease and she fell in love with it. We headed back out that afternoon and were seeing quite of few deer movement early. Around 4:30 I saw a large bodied deer walk across behind the feeder in the brush and I could tell it was a buck and he was not going to come to the feeder. I told her to watch where I thought he would come out on the fence line, and luckily he stopped and starting eating where we had corned on the fence line. When she saw him she said" Oh My Goodness", and I could tell her blood was pumping when she told me she wanted to take him. I told her to put the Ruger 270 out the window slowly and get on him with the scope. She told me she had him in the scope but he was not broadside. I said just be patient and he would turn for her and he did. She said she was ready so I took it off safety and told her to put the cross hairs right behind his front shoulder and squeeze the trigger when she felt she had it on him. She quickly told me she was shaking too bad to keep it on him so I put it back on safety and told her to take some deep breaths and we would try it again when she calmed down. She waited until he turned broad side again and she said she was ready again. She got on him and I took it off safety again and she let it go. She made a perfect heart shot and he fell right in his tracks. She jumped up out of her chair and let out a scream and gave me a high five. She wanted to go down to him right now and I had to tell her we needed to give him a little time to make sure he was down for good. After the longest five minutes of her life I told her we could go down and see him. She got down and ran down to him before I could even get out of the stand. When I got down there with her she was grinning ear to ear and told me that she never felt a rush like that and she knew why we do it. Needless to say it was a great weekend and it was great to spend it with my best friend my wife.

Thanks for sharing the story. Congrats to the Mrs. Mrs. Hag is still the same way----excited when a nice buck walks out. Can't say much, I am too. If I loose that I'll quit hunting.

It's the time spent in God's creation with family and friends making memories that counts.
