WHDH...these guys are very polite...I being a woman who hunts married to a man that fishes.....I'll say this... your a lucky woman that he hunts ...which usually takes place in the fall leaving a good part of the year free and isn't sitting bellied up to a bar drinking and peeing a pay check away...having been a night club manager there are MANY of those guys around....you could actually try out taking an interest in his passion and even get the kids involved...I taught my kids to bow hunt and Mr. B taught them gunning and fishing...we all look forward to hunt camp...playing gin and telling jokes ..cooking and eating together it's family time....then perhaps he'd take some stress from you and look into what you find enjoyable....just a thought...from a woman married 29 yrs in Oct.........

  I didnt let the meat go to waste. I have alot respect for the whietails that I harvest. About two years ago I was hunting this same land that only I could go on. I saw a small 6 point that I had passed up at first light, drop dead in his tracks not 20 yards away. I saw a hunter nearby so walked up to him to see why he was there. He gave me a line of BS then said he had shot at a buck. I told him his deer was dead not 100 yard away. after I told him it was a little six  point he said the deer he had shot at was bigger  he walked off right away in a hurry. I had to burn my buck tag up on this deer because I couldnt stand to see a deer go to waste. I have this land on lock down for 08 thanks to some very understanding owners letting me post this land.
  Thanks for the response and have a great deer season. DF 
killing big bucks the right way.

I scored 24 on this quiz. My highest point score on any one question was the one about holding out on a hunting buddy. This question, however, is not very specific. I wouldn't hold out very long, because if they got worried about where I was, a search party would mess up the hunt worse than leaving earlier than I would hope for. At the same time, this one relates to the one about legal hunting light, which I got a zero on. I never stay more than two or three minutes after legal shooting light (there could be a difference between my watch and the warden's!) because I wouldn't want to take the chance on accidentally killing a doe I thought may have been a buck. I would stay late, however, to give deer I know are there a chance to clear the area so I won't spook them.

I guess I'm either lucky or stupid.. or maybe a little of both.

Why lie about hunting to the wife? Talk about stupid... she expects me to be out hunting all fall. Last weekend she even came along and help me move some tree stands for gun opener next weekend. She's glad I have a hobby (okay, maybe a little more like an obsession).

When she doesn't come to the farm with me she hangs out with the daughter and they watch chick flicks, go shopping, lay around and be lazy, etc.... She's just glad the kids are all grown now and either go with me or aren't taking up all her time in my prolonged absences.

Come on you young bucks, grow some huntas!!!! It's a good clean hobby, keeps you out of the bars (for the most part) and gives you time to think and clear your head. You can visit the in-laws all winter long. Take her shopping every weekend after the close of the season. But this is our time! Get out there, hunt hard, hunt long!


p.s.- If my wife reads this I disavow all knowledge of just who this Hudson Buckmaster is!
