My wife has never been deer hunting before
She decided a few months ago she wanted to go with me opening day
So, we went and got her a Savage Axis 7mm 08 youth, she is 5'3", and it felt good to her
We got her rifle sighted in at 100 yards, got her gear, license etc, and she is excited to go
We are heading to our area on the 30th to get camp etc setup
I asked her if she would be able to put cross hairs on a living animal and pull the trigger, she said, her words, "no problem"
I am not sure who is more excited, me or her. smile

Excelent. My wife sat with me a couple times last year and has helped me setup on a new lease this year. She shot my rifle and shotgun last year (first time ever for her), loved it and is a deadeye! She's ready for her first harvest this year, so I'm letting her have the first shot.

Wife is the best hunting partner ever. I'd rather hunt with her than anybody. mine started about 6 years ago, and it has become a passion.

Sunday afternoon at deer camp, I stayed in camper to watch the NASCAR race, wife went bowhunting by herself.... I was proud!

My wife has hunted with me several times. I was more nervous as she took her first deer (a big-bodied 7-pt) than I've ever been for any of my own kills. Y'all will enjoy it.

Good job getting her prepared and equipped, and good luck up

up That's always a good feeling having her want to hunt.

My wife has been going hunting with me the past few years, but has never been much on shooting (not even at a target), but said she would shoot pigs. I picked up a 22-250 for my wife to shoot some pigs with this year. She's not against hunting, she just has that mindset of "I don't want to shoot a poor little ole deer". Last weekend while driving out to the ranch, we see a nice 10 standing about 50 yards off the road, she looks at me and said now I would shoot him! Needless to say she got her first hunting license this year and she's doing pretty well with her new gun banana November 1st can't get here fast enough

I started my wife hunting with me before we got married up you will love having your best friend and now hunting partner with you in the blind nothing better clap And if you think you get excited to kill something just wait till your better half kills something and you get to watch banana banana

We've been together for 5 hunting seasons and last year I finally shot a buck, I've been letting her shoot them all cause it's just that awesome grin

CONGRATS MAN!

Good deal!! Hope she's had plenty of time to practice with the new rifle. Good luck and hope she come home a hunting addict!


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

My wife has gone with me several times over the years. Just bought her first rifle (Tikka T3 7mm-08) and she'll be hunting with me this year.

It's gonna be a good season. up

Having a wife that appreciates her husbands interest in hunting is a good thing no doubt.

Having common interest is always good for the marriage and when it happens to be the outdoors. HOME RUN. Good luck to y'all and I hope she tags one

Only thing better than taking your wife hunting is not taking your wife hunting.


How come everybody I meet is a deer hunting expert?

Now get ready for all your hunting expenses to double! But on the upside, no more having to 'justify' the hunting expenses!! Enjoy, many good times to come for the two of you.

Mine started a few years ago and it is fun. She doesn't like to get up early so she just hunts afternoons. What that means is I still get breakfast when I get back from the morning sit but now I have to wait for dinner...before she hunted she always had dinner ready. Oh well small price to pay.

My wife started going with me when we were dating. She still goes with me now. This year will be a little different as we have a baby going on 2 weeks old. Hopefully I can get her out mid season while Omie is watching the little one.

My wife grew up in a family that hunts but girls weren't really wanted around hunting camp. As soon as we started dating she has been hunting with me. Hasn't harvested a deer yet but is getting closer.

My wife was hunting way before we even met, our tradition is hunting together in the same blind opening morning. After that it's every man for their selves.

I am really looking forward to her going with me
She gets first shot, I will be so happy if she gets one
She has never shown any interest in going hunting with me, I can't wait to sit in the blind with my best friend/wife
It also makes me feel great to see how many like having their wives hunting with them. I never imagined how many enjoyed hunting with their wife
If we don't see so much as a hog, it will be great spending time with her at deer camp. It's only going to be the two of us
I know it will not be the last time we go together, I am looking more forward to the future hunts with her
