One week left and we're all acting like kids in a candy shop. How do you guys get through work and family time? How do you get the heavily adored " Kitchen pass" For this weekend?

I took the wife out for our anniversary Saturday, then she took me to Cabelas. (SCORE !!!) I got all the deer stand goodies including an aerosol can of #69. My M.I.L asked what type of hair spray it was while we were outside. Long story short, that stuff don't go in hair. ( Need another can)
Yesterday I took the .270 WSM out to hear it sing with new loads.
The wife got all my camo ready and packed,
All I need now is that 3:30 bell on Friday

So lets hear it, how do you

Took last Friday off and went MLD, crossbow, and youth hunting all weekend and did prep work for the rifle opener.

No need for a kitchen pass, she knows the drill.



Only thing I have to worry about is not taking her on the opener of her beloved duck season. wife

She's made threats to go set her own decoys, call, and retrieve her own ducks while I deer hunt, we'll see.

I have been hunting since Sept. 15th this year. No wife so I don't have anything to hold me back from hunting every day if I want.

As soon as I was required to get a kitchen pass, I fired the cook and now cook for myself. Fortunately I have a job where I can pretty much take off whenever; however, I have a 15 year old son living with me, so that is almost as bad as the first "cook" I had but when he is out of school, we are hunting.


How come everybody I meet is a deer hunting expert?

I tell my wife when I'm going and when i'll be back so I leave it at that.


I have a flexible work schedule so I can be mobile but that comes at a price, my phone never stops ringing, I'm often on the phone on business in the blind.

Most of my hunting now is an afternoon or a day here and there for the most part, I can't take the 2-3 day trips like I used to every week.

Most years I will take a week or two off from the office to get my serious hunting in though

When I am home... I take care of what I need to take care of. Go to dinner night before.. do some honeydoos that week... and I never have a problem and honestly I never "ask" to go hunting... We have a good working understanding relationship and has been working this way for almost 10 years.... Its a give and take... pick your battles and enjoy your time together and you enjoy yours at deer camp and in return let her enjoy hers... make her a reservation at the spa opening weekend... that always goes a LONG way! up

Retired and don't have to worry about days off. Taking care of a few things around the house. Trying to not think about Saturday morning with busy work. Making jerky right now to take with me. Wife knows this weekend is mine. No kitchen pass required. She will come out and hunt the second weekend and every weekend after this one until she connects.

After 42 years we get just load up and head out. She doesn't ask me for permission and I don't ask her for permission.

Took the wife to a local nature park yesterday and walked for the sake of walking as she likes to do.

I also make it a point to stay ahead of the curve throughout the off season by taking care of whatever breaks around the house and with the vehicles, and evenings out for dinner.

The trick is to establish that BEFORE you get married.... I told my wife, 18 years ago, we could get married when ever she wanted just not during deer season.. When we discussed having kids, I told her as long as their birthdays were not during deer season.. I'm still married to the same woman and have a June baby and an October Anniversary.. That was cool until I got on to MLD property some 15 years ago... My plan kinda back fired there.. Not to worry .. She knows she is a Deer Lease widow when this time of year rolls around... I take the whole month of November and half the month of December off just to hunt.. Not to count the week or two I take here and there during Oct, Jan and Feb... I got pretty lucky..

I was a hunter long before I was a husband. Wifey bought her tickets, she knew what she was getting. The oldest boy is fired up and ready to go, too. It's just as exciting for her to get us two out of the house.

Since buying land 35 miles from home last year it won't be a big deal. I'm away from home during the day every day I'm off duty anyway. This time of year I won't be home before dark. Last night I did remind her of a week long Mule Deer hunt in December. She said it's written on the calender and it's not a big deal for me to be gone on weekdays since kids are in school and she's at work.

Not married but I feed the GF backstrap and bacon wrapped duck breast as much as possible. She loves it.. sends me on my way with these orders: "Come home with meat or don't come home at all". When she gets the chance (not often bc work) she comes with me.

Love her...

25 years of kitchen passes and then she started hunting with me. She gets as fired up about the next season as much as I do now. Turkey, dove, teal, deer, duck and now she wants to do sandhill crane for our anniversary. banana

There is no need for a kitchen pass, it was in my prenup. I told her 20 years ago that I hunted before her and I will hunt after her and if that sounds like a problem then I will keep looking for the right person. She said no problem so I married her and it has never been a problem. Now how much I spend to hunt is a different story. king

My Wife grew up in a hunting family and spent many, many, days of her youth playing along Grape creek, at her families deer lease near Luckenbach. No problem here.
