I am meeting THF member to look at a lease. I told her "you don't have to come if your busy". Behold she says "Nope, I'm going with you". Funny a few yrs. ago she wouldn't blink an eye thinking of going hunting with me, much less look at a possible lease. She is all about the hunting, feeding etc now. Women, can't live with em, can't live without em.

BTW wish me luck. I hope this place is what "we" are looking for.

When we first got married, my wife camped and hunted with me. Now after 34 years of marriage, the closest mine will come to camping is a Motel 6.

For years I hunted leases with this group of guys or that group. Then I decided that I needed a travel trailer for the lease, so I could go and stay for a week or so. Wife said Ok, so I started looking. She came along. All I wanted was the real basics, but the wife got into the whole concept and things got out of hand. Had to have a bathtub. Had to have a decent kitchen and microwave and oven. Had to have a fridge. On and on it went. Finally I bought something that was way over budget, though it was a nice one. Wife started going to the lease and hanging new drapes and recovering the couch cushions and having me install new fixtures in the bathroom. Then she became a regular at the deer lease. Worked out Ok. While I was out hunting with a few of the guys, she'd cook the steaks and taters and make a salad and have a good bottle of wine open. The guys started asking if I'd bring the wife with me NEXT time. She never hunted, but she was a welcome regular. She really can cook a steak.

It is really cool having the wife along. For the first 25 years of our marriage she stayed home and let the daughters and me go on hunting trips. After the girls went to college she starting tagging along. She has shot all kinds of animals and looks forward to whatever season is coming up next. She hunts archery season now.
She even helped skin two whitetails a few weeks back. The same weekend she got her first bobcat. She was more excited than when I got her a diamond solitaire pendant for our anniversary.

My wife has knocked down a few good bucks over the years and has chased hogs and dogs with me too. She has taken a hiatus for the last couple years but has turned it back on recently. Now she is looking for a turkey and asking for a bow! Good times

Be careful of the monster that you create when you take your wife hunting with you. See my article in the Photos forum titled, "Sometimes even Diamonds won't get a women to do what you want."
