This last fall was the first time I got my wife in the stand. Last afternoon of the season. She just sat with me to see what it was like, she didnt carry a gun, but says next year she may give it a try.

My wife used to hunt before I meet her. She used to deer hunt every year. I never deer hunted with her but seen pictures of the deer she has harvestesd. Before I got married to her, I didn't validate one of my search criterias in finding the "perfect one" - being able to gut a deer. I think she is going to go this season - 2008

I hunt with my wife, what an asset to deer camp she is. She usually makes sure at lest one deer is killed every year, packs our stuff so we don't have to drive an hour + back home to get what i forgot! And more than willing to help with gutting, cutting and is our best dragger! She even has harvested a deer while being pregnant with all three of our children. She is the greatest of hunting partners and is "just one of the "guys"" in deer camp(no having to watch what you say). She's just great!

My wife has started deer hunting 3 years ago. She is always spotting deer, and she enjoys the outdoors as much as the next guy. This last year she was hunting with her 13 year old son,she spotted 2 deer about 100yds out. After about 30 mins the does gave her son about a 80 yrd board side shot. His first shot and their first deer. She has yet to shoot at a deer but I thinks she is hooked.

My wife hunts off and on. About 3 times the last 5 years. I'll give you a short little story about her first time out: We were hunting one morning for a couple of hours and seen nothing so I decided to make a drive for her. I told her to sit next to this big pine and watch the ravine in front of her and just be ready, you never know. I get about 3/4 of the way through the drive and I hear a gun shot. I get up to her and she says she missed. I ask where they(buck and a doe) were. She walks about 15 feet away and says right here. I ask what happened and she says she was putzin around with the pine needles and heared a branch snap and looked up to see the deer running in the ravine. The deer ran up the ravine right towards her and she shot to scare the deer from running right in front of her. I couldn't help but chuckle a little at her.

let me tell ya how my wife hunts:

she gets up real early in the morning to be the first one out.

She has her stuf packed the night before and weapon of choice at the ready

she gets into position waiting for the time to come

When the time comes she rushes for her target letting nothing get in her way

when the prey is secured she quickly prepares it and packs it away so she can get it registered.

once registered she whips out her favorite weapon, the target card, and seals the deal

Her trophy a reciept and a clearnace sticker to show her friends.

I can not complain she can not resist a clearance anymore than i can resist a broadside shot.

Maybe my middle kid will hunt for real. ;\)

i think its a great time to be able to enjoy it out there in with the wife. Katie has been hunting with me now for 3-4 years, and this last year she didnt shoot anything. So i have a feeling, theres going to be some changes of where she sits next year

My wife has hunted with me since we got married, last year she shot 3 deer. And yes if it wasnt for her doing the packing, I would be waisting money on buying alot of forgotten stuff. She helps with dragging, hanging cleaning, whatever she can do. I have gutted them for her, but after her shooting 3 last year I told her the next one she gets to do, she slept in the next morning! She is also just one of the hunting party.

My wife and I hunted together frequently until our daughter was born six years ago. I got to see her shoot her first duck, and she was with me when I shot my first bull elk.

We have gone on several elk hunts together which were most enjoyable. I will never forget how jacked up she was when she shot her first elk.

The last half dozen years we have taken turns going out while the other watches the kid. Now that the daughter will be seven this fall, we will likely start all hunting together, which I look forward to very much.

My wife hunts as well. Started when we got together. Funny thing is that she is deathly afraid of heights. First year we sat in a stand together and she wouldn't let go of the tree. 2nd year she let go of the tree but was afraid to shoot for fear of falling from the recoil. 3rd year she sat by herself and shot a 6 point from 25 yards out. Gutted it and dragged it herself. Hunted every year since but for last season. She got a fat promotion at work and needed to be there to prove herself. She'll be out again this year she says.

That first season we had a black bear come under our stand. Man she freaked out! Kept telling me to shoot or throw something at it to scare it away. The 3rd day of that season we had a very large female timber wolf come by about 10 yards away. Every hair on my wifes body was standing up. She shook for about 5 hours after that. Funny stuff.

Now she makes sure that she has her camera with her in the stand and manages to snap some incredible pictures of the local wildlife.

She swears up and down that she will get a bigger buck than me this year. We'll see...

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
