Does your wife....

Postby Riverjumper » Wed Nov 09, 2005 10:18 pm

Ever go Duck Hunting with you?

She came all the time last year while we were dating. Now we are married, she is planning on this weekend, hopefully she'll come out more.

We are both students, she is part time, I am full time with classes only in afternoons. She is the working one right now, and is telling me to hunt as much as I can, I get out 5 days a week minimum!!! Too bad it can't last forever!

Mine came with me on a weekend Goose hunt a couple weeks ago. This weekend we are going up North for the weekend and will go out Swan Hunting together.

Take Care,

My wife goes hunting with me for dove, quail, pheasant and spring turkey but will not go out for ducks. The usual responce is something like this; " You are nuts! Do you know how cold it is out there? I dont think the dogs should be out in this weather, why dont you leave them home so they dont get sick." She never seem to be worried about my health! Just kidding guys she has never in five years asked me or told me not to go hunting. I think she knows that hunting is just part of who I am. Take care guys.
By the way, the dogs do go and have never got sick!!!!!

Sometimes my wife will come along but she really prefers pheasant and grouse hunting to waterfowl.

Way too early in the morning for my wife. She comes from a long line of people who keep sleep as a top priority.

Back a couple of years ago when we were dating I got her out in Oct. for our early resident goose season. 15 min. into it she was playing games on my cell phone. She's never been back out since and hasn't even mentioned it. That's all fine and dandy with me cause if she was out there she'd have the dog wrapped up in a blanket like a baby and distracting her from her "work".

As she told me when I first asked her to go out and duck hunt with me..... "If it's not between 71 and 76 degrees I'm not going outside!" :laughing:

My girlfriend used to clean the birds her dad and brother shot and she can also skin a deer which I can't even do. I am trying not to screw this one up.

She asked if I would take her to shoot clays some day so that is a good start.

My wife enjoys going occassionally (read as not every day that there is the possiblity there might be a duck)

And the boy goes when I'm jumpshooting

I figure you can't start them too early and he happens to have a fixation on birds, so why not (the occasional oreo doesn't hurt either)

HW went with me once when we were dating. She sat on the bank and threw sticks and rocks at me as I waded a few yards away. When she got tired with that she took a nap. This was an afternoon hunt and as soon as the light began to fade she was ready to leave. I did manage one woodie drake as we were walking out. She has also been deer hunting and turkey hunting with me. She likes it, but is in no way a fan of getting up anywhere as early as we need to.
If the hunting is cold, luckily so is the beer!
