Bob,
That is a great reason to brag! Tell the wife to keep it up, she's got a good teacher. I miss the red dirt down there on your range...I'll be back down soon.

I know how you feel.

My wife hunts deer, elk and turkey and also shoots 1000 yard matches with me.
She is my best hunting buddy.

Congrats to your wife.

Brent,
LOL Took me 10 minutes to get her to stop jumping up and down. She told me last night, that she already got her buck, and this weekend she is going for her doe.
Jamie,
Come on down anytime sir! We are usually out there on the weekends shooting.
Darryl,
Yes it is nice when they become interested in shooting. Took me years to get her shooting long range, and in the last year she has really progressed! Only problem with that is that the ammo budget has really inflated. I don't hardly get to shoot anymore!!
Now, if I can get her interested in Coyote hunting....

Re: Wife\'s First Hunt

Think of it this way.

With her interested in hunting and shooting, you will "never" have a problem buying "any" item you need to shoot or hunt with.
New guns, loading tools, hunting clothes are never a problem with her interested.
Make sure she has her own rifle to use and she will be a happy puppy.
That's a plus and most guys don't know this.

Re: Wife\'s First Hunt

Darryl,
I have found that out! She shoots a Winchester Stealth, and since I have gotten that rifle, hasn't said a thing about things I am picking up, especially when I am buying reloading supplies. There are no more statements like " You don't need all that..will take you forever to shoot it up" LOL

Re: Wife\'s First Hunt

See, it's working already.


Have been doing this for over 40 years now.
Even before we got married (42 years ago), I took my wife out Pheasent and rabbit hunting with me to get her use it.

Her Dad was a hunter and also a Col. in WW2 under Patton, so the guns and hunting were always accepted, especially here in PA.

Good luck and keep on buying.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
