Default Wife's First Deer

Well my wife finally decided to hunt for her first year after going out with me on numerous hunting and scouting trips over the years. She got a BowTech Equalizer with a Spot-Hogg Real Deal 1 1/2 years ago to start shooting with me.

It has always been great to spend time out in the woods with my wife and I have to say this was the highlight of my archery season this year. I spent the summer trying to find the best location with the most deer activity for tree stands since she didn't care if her first animal was a doe or a buck. We saw four deer from the stand in three hours and she finally had a clear broadside shot at 20 yds on this blacktail doe.

I feel extremely lucky to have such a great wife that likes the outdoors whether it is camping, backpacking, scouting, and now hunting. Next year she is going to try elk hunting and I can not wait. Good luck to everyone rifle hunting right now.

Marci out helping me hunt elk.

Congrats to her on her first deer.... Thats AWESOME!!!! That should be some tender vitals right there... my wife gun hunts, but hasn't got a deer yet... she cant hunt this year. With work and school, she has way to much to do. So she had to take this year off....

Congrats to your wife! When my wife got her first, I was more excited than she was I think! We were hunting maybe 100 yards apart, and the buck came by, and she got super excited, and I heard the bleat to stop the buck. Then a few seconds later, my phone was vibrating. the first thing she said was "I think I bleated a little loud!" and I was like "yeah, perhaps!"

Good luck to both of you on future hunts. Those trips are going to be some of your most memorable.
