Definately not man. I'm ont married yet but there are tons of ladies out there that like to hunt themselves or at least tolerate it. It does take some skill to find them though.

OOOOOOHHHHH...I know my wife must wishI didn't hunt as much as I do but she would never say don't do it. She knows it is who I am, I never led her on when first got together in fact I said there is something you need to know before we go any further I am an avid hunter..aka if their is a season I probably will be hunting during it! I think anybody who try's to change a person completelyis with the wrong person to begin with. You can teach a old dog new tricks butthey can't changetheir spots completely. A relationship is a give and take situation. Each is an individual and as such they have different interests but once they become a couple they also must have common interests..the key is to balance the two so each work collectively to build a happy life. I have my hunting, guns&she has her gardening, crafts, shoes, etc. We both like to fish, havechildern, etc. I take hunting trips by myself and send her away by herself. We also make sure we take joint holidays. We split the chores at home and before I hunt I make sure to make meals (since I am the main cook) and have the house tidy. Also a dozen roses delivered mid week while away doesn't hurt.

When you meet a gal you really like be honest with her, tell her your likes/dislikes/passions/fears and ask the same of her.Don't worry their are plenty of women who like men who do men things, you just have to find them..oh and by the way they all will give you some grief it is just that maternal thing they possess& we are clueless about!

Yeah, that's right. One of my best girl friends growing up hunts. My wife on the other hand doesn't and grew up in a family that doesn't.

She tolerates my habit and hobby of hunting. Perhaps I'll take her sometime...or perhaps not. lol

My father in law hunts, so my wife is used to it. But we have a newborn, she will be 7 weeks this week. Opening day was the 24th, well needless to say, I hunted and came home and took care of baby and then going back out and coming back and taking care of baby. Just to give the wife a break.

I love to hunt, but I'm not going to put my family on the back burner like the rest of the hunters in my family does. The decision is sleeping more or hunting more

My wife loves to read and go garage saling so she is tickled when I go off and hunt. Hunting is very expensive and I get a set allowance and a side job for the expenses. I do wish she loved the outdoors as much as I do...but she doesn't.

I've got to honestly say that I found a good one.My wifelets me hunt and fish without complaining and she even lets me goon a couple of hiking trips per year for 2 - 4 days at the time.I wouldn't trade her for a million dollars......butthere have been a few days when I would have paid you that much to come and get her

my wife STILL tries to make me feel guilty about going so frequently. I think that she would have learned by now that it doesn't work. I don't know if it is her griping, but I seem to go more when she does gripe.
