Fall hunting Season

Well hunting season is here again soon. Maybe I just have control issues but I don't like my eagle eye husband over my shoulder. My sons are happy that I just shoot. This should be more of a bonding moment then boot camp. I feel like my husband is my soccer MOM. I started hunting at 16 and put a deer down that year. Went to college and shot some squirrels since then, but never saw anything to shoot at during deer season. I passed up a small doe this year with a baby and now I'm thinking it's more important to him than me if I get a deer. Don't mistake me he is the up most ethical hunter and he would have passed as well, but how do you balance the enthusiasum? Gals? Guys? without hurt feelings, because he is a great help on the target range.

Re: Fall hunting Season

Likely, it is more important to him than you that you get a deer. For one reason: Your success is his happiness!

Be happy that he wants you out there with him. Tell him something like; "You know, I want this deer to be special, even if it takes a year or two to harvest it. I want a mature doe or a 2.5 year old buck...I appreciate your support" (Whatever you are comfortable with.)

He'll understand you are waiting.

Re: Fall hunting Season

maybe you should go alone sometimes, thats part of the lure to hunting for me. being alone, its nice and quiet, i forget i own a house and the grass needs mowed.

What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!

Re: Fall hunting Season

It is so funny that you posted this thread this week. Hunting with your husband (best friend) can be the absolutely best thing in the world but it can also be the most frustrating. I've been practicing a LOT this summer with my husband - we're heading to Colorado this weekend to hunt elk and muleys - and at this point I am plain sick of his 2 cents on everything. LOL Just this week I finally had a meltdown - I know deep down he is my biggest supporter and helper but once in a while he needs a reminder to step back and let me hunt! I think he finally heard me loud and clear Best of luck to you - I hope you BOTH enjoy the season and time together.
