lmao at field mouse. Seriously I would have no problems having a woman hunting with me. More people to drive the deer (just kidding). I hunted with my cousin which was a female and she taught me some real good lessons.

We have no problem at all letting women hunt in our group...

..specially if they are attractive.

Sorry, the chauvinist pig in me reared its ugly head.

Seriously though, we already have two women that hunt with us and nobody had an issue with it. My wife even accompanied us on a trip or two several years back.

Thought I would add to this thread. Very interesting by the way....

Growing up my father, brothers, uncles & grandfather all hunted. Not once was I ever asked if I was interested in hunting. It just was not a woman thing. I've always preferred sitting with the guys when they were talking hunting and fishing - it's much more interesting than the latest fashions and childrearing advice. So after buying some land out in the country I've decided to give hunting a try. I've learned everything all on my own. I've read books and watched hunting programs on TV. I'm a pretty good shot and I know my way around the woods. I can track and read the signs, the wind and the weather.

In the woods now my brothers and one uncle have no problem with me hunting with them. My grandfather is now gone and my father only fishes. I've met other male hunters in the woods and they all look at me funny. I can tell some of them don't want me there while others treat me just the same as a guy. I think some of the problem is that some guys think they will be out-hunted. It's a silly way to think if you ask me. LOL I've always wanted to be one of the guys though - you know, going to camp and having fun drinking, burping, farting and carrying on. I guess I'm a tomboy at heart. Don't get me wrong though - I'm still all woman when the time calls for it.

P.S. Hey Illinois... Thank you

Absolutely! My fiancee asked me if she could go along to watch me shoot the archery the day after our first After that, she asked me to help her pick out a bow. She went bowhunting a year later for the first time and was unable to connect. Two years ago she rolled her truck and ended up with broken collar bone, and then eight months later had to have shoulder surgery because of the wreck as well. Well....this year she's back, and very excited about being able to get out hunting again. My daughter will be 10 in a week,and she's been shooting for 3 years now.
My mom never bow hunted, but she always went rifle hunting, and she was damn fine shot too. I remember watching her put four .30-06 rounds in the boiler room of a 135" 9 pt. on a drive when I was eight years old....I thought "WOW.....girls can shoot too!" haha
I think the jump in numbers of women in hunting and the shooting sports is fantastic, and it will help prove some to the ANTI's that it's not just a bunch of "knuckle-dragging, cave dwellers" haha

Yes especially if they have big boobs. My wife hunted at one time. But she got tired of dragging out my deer. HONEST

My wife will rifle hunt and usually takes at least one or twoa year doing so.

A women in my camp, very welcome and there are always a few floating around (it's a big multiple family lease).
A women in my isolated camp? my wife wouldn't care for that too much (she's kinda possesive)

I would love to have woman to hunt with I always said the more the better in the deer woods. But my wife has a problem with me going off in the woods with another woman. I guess it kind of reminds her of when we used to go into the woods before we got married. I have had woman ask if I could teach them but the wife would never allow it. I do hunt with my sister once in a while thats ok with the wife. But again I wish I could but to save the home front I don't. Welcome to the sight and an excellent first post. Good luck Mike
