I'm working the same angle, but it's with my daughter. My wife doesn't mind hunting per se, but she:
1. Doesn't like getting up early.
2. Doesn't like being cold.
3. WILL NOT use "nature" for her ladies room anymore (she did when younger)
This kinda rules out most hunting! So my daughter, who I had shooting a bow and a .22 (rifle and pistol) when she was 8, expressed an interest to me this summer while home from college, that she wanted to learn to shoot a shotgun at moving targets, and she wants to bird hunt, especially over dogs. She made me one happy dad! I got her some skeet lessons, and she even shot some sporting clays with us, and she is hooked.
This winter we'll try the hunting part. She also went with me on Father's Day to a 3-D shoot with my old 37# recurve that I taught her to shoot, and she had a great time. Whether this will lead to her bowhunting remains to be seen, but at the minimum the guy who may marry her one day owes me a great big THANK YOU if he hunts!
