Default Wifes Deer Hunting Syndrome!!!!!

Well as hunting season is just 3 1/2 weeks away, my wife seems to
be able to find more and more and more and more stuff around the
house that I have not got done since last season. Every year it is the
same ruitine over and over again. One year she will learn, hunting
season is three months out of the year, those three months the only
honey do that I have to do is to haul that big monster buck out of the

All you gotta do is take the pants away from her and wear them once in a while!

Well I have found that if I come home and do a few hours of honey does in the middle of the day every once in a while the war department is satisfied! Actually my wife handles my hunting, scouting and practicing with the bow very well, I have an archery range set up in the back yard and usually practice at least once a day weather permitting.

By the time hunting season rolls around my wife is almost pushing me out the door. Guess she gets tired of hearing me talk about it, and she understands that I get very excited too

I used to have the same problem , but now all I have to do is say " fishing license" and she retreats . I used to fish a lot until she got tired of not seeing me as much as she would have liked , it finally came to a head when I tossed my fishing license into her lap and said" You' d better decoupage that , you' ve earned it but you' re not gonna like what it' s gonna cost" . This was followed by the words " Upon my honor I will never fish again." My wife understands completely what the concept of honor means to me , and she doesn' t say a word when I go hunting .

I can only perform honey-do tasks two months a year. mid-Jan through mid-March. When hunting season is over there' s only a 2 month period before the striped bass start hitting again.

I feel your pain, every year she knows its coming and I think that plays into her waiting to give me the to do list.(However this summer I was proactive and painted the fence---one big job done) This year is especially hard as last week I came close but never connected on a brute of heard bull elk with the bow and the fire is lite so deep I need to get back in less than 2 weeks and try again with the rifle. I get a week to catch up on chores and work, then a solid month of trying to fill my Draw Mulie tags with bow/ML at every available moment. If god is not willing to grant me my dreams of a big Mulie I will have 2 weeks with the rifle to try and get the taxidermist busy. That takes me to our annual northern whitetail hunt-3rd week of nov. Rough life but I will hopefully survive the wrath of a women scorn!!!! Thank god for no hunting on sundays and I pray for good weather, so I can hunt every saturday & still get my work done on the home front.

I am glad I am not the only one with this problem!!! Actually, my wife is pretty cool when it comes to hunting season. It starts with squirrels, then doves, then deer, rabbit....., most of the time I,m good to go, but there are times when the honey do list rears its ugly head!!!

We have a steadfast rule around my house. Honey do' s end at the end of Sept. and don' t start back up until Feb. the following year. Now, I normally have a pretty steady list from Feb-Sept. and I don' t bitch about what' s on the list and whatever she wants to do gets done and in return I don' t do honey do' s during hunting season and she don' t bitch about that.

[>:]Just so you guys know, it' s not strictly a guy thing! All I asked my husband to do before bow season was to build me a gate for the back yard. So far, in the past three weeks, I have scraped and repainted two porches and six windows, cut more firewood than I ever care to see again, tuned up my truck, changed the oil in his truck and mine, replaced part of the kitchen cabinets, and I' m about half-way done with trimming the hedge. Once I' m finished with that, I' m gonna try really hard not to find anything else that needs to be done around here!
Only six more weeks and I get 17 days of vacation to do nothing but hunt!
