My wife has occasionally shot with me, she went to cabelas with me a year or two into our marriage and picked out a .22 within our budget. She’s not bad with it either. But she has no interest whatsoever in hunting or hearing details about hunting. And I’m just fine with that it turns out, it’s important to do things together, but also important to be our own people with our own interests, some separate domains. She cooks the tastiest roasts I’ve ever had with what I bring home, and supports and organizes time for me to go hunt. She isn’t hypocritical, she knows where meat comes from, likes to eat it, doesn’t want to hear a lot about how it got to her plate, appreciates my going and getting it. I’ve come to think it’s better, in my particular case, this way. I love my wife, my family, my friends...but to be honest I don’t love hunting with other people in general. The mental and I dare say spiritual benefits of being in nature are greatly lost on me if I’m not out there alone. For me it’s meant to be prime alone and away time.I came close last year though. The good thing is she fish (except ice fishing) and shoots with me.
I am part of a organization that specializes in women's hunting, shooting and fishing adventures. Home (sisterhoodoutdoors.com)Lethal chica, how did you line that up and where were all the ladies from? Tell us the story please
I didn't know such an organization and website existed. What a great idea.
