Need some Outdoors Women help on this one.

Hope I am not breaking the rules but here goes. My wife and I have talked much about hunting. She has gone as far as taking the state required hunting classes and tests and has her "blue card". She enjoys the fact that I love hunting and go often and spend many hours and $$ doing it. My question is this. How do I get her to go with me? I have asked and she states she needs practice but everytime I go practice and invite her she says that she is embarased and does not want people to watch her learn to shoot a shotgun. I have offered to take her out in the desert, just us, but she is still hesitant and embarased.

Any ladies in Utah want to teach another one to shoot a shotgun?

I already have both my daughters very interested and going in the right direction so it is not a "cant find a sitter" type of deal. Any input or help would be great.

I read this thread about a week ago and I have been thinking long and hard about a good solution. Unfortunately, I haven't come up with anything brilliant, but I will say this: OEJ, it sounds like your wife has the interest about hunting in her, she just needs (a lot) of encouragement. IT seems like the best approach would be to continue to try to get her to go out with you alone somewhere where y'all can practice shooting in private. Don't get discouraged if she says no or has an excuse, keep asking. Just because we gals turn you down a time or teo doesn't mean you should stop asking us. If she knows that you mean it and you're gently persistent, she'll come with you eventually. Just be patient!

It would be nice if she had another woman to go with, but that's a very individual thing. Some women would like to have another female (or male) around, but lots of us do better when we're one on one with someone we trust. Good luck!
