So went to the NF, didn't get 200yds in and she spotted two mulie does, we both had tags. I'd left my rifle all the way in the rear of the vehicle. The deer were aprox 50yds from us. I grabbed the 44mag from under the seat, I didn't know which one she could get a bead on through the trees, so I let her shoot first, mine trotted off a couple of steps, and I took my shot at mine. So last year she plugged four deer, with the 270 Savage she got for her birthday. This year, she's hunting mulies without me:(. I won a year long vacation in Afghanistan.

I get into trouble for using her Blue press she stole from me. I also get into trouble for not taking her to the range with me

This next summer my son turns 12. He's indicated that he's interested. I hope to see that he can shoot like his mom does. I know he can, hope he likes it and will stick with it. He has talent's like that.

I'm grateful for your service and I'm sorry that you are having to be away from your family. Your post brings the true nature of our service men and women's sacrifice to the front of the list of things that we should all be thankful for.

Re: Do Your Wife And/or Kids Hunt?

My kids all hunt and fish. My oldest son and daughter are probably more intense about it than the youngest son and daughter but they all enjoy it at some level. My son-in-law got a heck of a bargain when he married my oldest daughter. She's a girly girl. She fishes. She bird hunts. She deer hunts with a rifle and bow.

Here husband took a picture of her hunting from one of her blinds last year. She was decked out in full camo, sitting in the living room. She had the screen off of the window and was hunting a feeder that she had him put in the back yard (I know... I can't stand how we hunt over feeders in TX either. But that's how it is)

One of the first times I took her fishing we were zipping along at about 35 mph (GPS verified) in my little 14' Express. It had, emphasis on had, a little 35 hp Navy Seal surplus motor on it and it would scoot. We zipped down the intracoastal canal, made a hard right into East Matagorda bay, and headed out to some fishing holes I had tagged in the GPS. The sun was shining, the water was right, and the engine was purring when all of the sudden- silence. I looked back at the motor and a little smoke wafted out. My daughters eyes were wide open and she said "Dad! what are we going to do!". I said, "you better throw that anchor out because we are drifting the wrong way. May as well bait up and fish because we aren't going anywhere anytime too soon." We ended up catching a couple of nice reds and a speckled trout. A buddy of mine came and hauled us in when he got off of work. Oh- the water pump went out. I found out years later the guy that I bought the boat from installed something backwards when he overhauled it. He worked part time at a boat shop. That's a scary thought...

I took her on her first deer hunt. She shot a pretty nice buck. Like they always seem to do, he ground shrunk a tad, but for a first deer it was pretty nice. I let her use my .270 and she handled it well for a gangly 14 year old girl. When she shot he ran to our left and disappeared in some scrub. I was pretty sure that she hit him because he humped up when she shot. We walked down to where he stood when she shot and found him about 15 yards to the left. As we were looking him over she said "I'm glad that I shot him but I feel sad inside too". I said " baby girl, that's a good thing. You always want to have respect for what you kill when you're hunting." After that she was fine.

All great memories that have stuck with me 10 years. Now I have a grandson that didn't fall far from mom and dad's tree so I'm sure we'll have some good times together when he gets a little older.

Re: Do Your Wife And/or Kids Hunt?

My wife didnt hunt before she met me, but now she loves it. My oldest kids by a previous marriage, Zach 21 and Kelsi 23 do, or in Kelsi's case, has and does on occasion.

We have just adopted 3 sisters ages 5, 5 and 6. They dont yet, have been to the dove fields with us, but they will have their chance as they get old enough.

Wife doesn't hunt but I want to get her into it. She target shoots but has grown out of it. I can't wait to introduce my son and daughter to target shooting and hunting. I am already looking at rifles and shotguns for them.

Re: Do Your Wife And/or Kids Hunt?

my wife and daughter love to hunt havent wanted to shoot anything yet. both are good shots but afraid of wounding an animal. working on their hesitation. my two oldest sons were raised on varmit shooting and target shooting and they love to hunt. my oldest is a pilot of a blackhawk and he just shot a moose and muskox. he did two tours already, one in kosovo and iraq. said hunting and shooting really helped in basics. the second is attached to seal team 4 as an eod specialist and all of his shooting has come in handy in close quarter combat training. my stepson loves to hunt and is a crack shot even on running game. shot his first whitetail at 300 yards running away on a quarting shot. dropped him in his tracks with one shot of a 308. a little squeamish on dressing out the game yet, but working on that. my third son is a good shot, has killed game but isnt really interested. he said that it helped a lot in basic at the airforce academy tho this last year. almost thru with his first year now. plan on getting the wife and daughter (only ones left at home) in ipsc and trap or skeet this year as well as hunting.

Wife shoots the bow, rifles, and handguns, but not interested in hunting. Daughter will be two next week and I have another child on the way, so it will be a minute until they're ready.
