My wife knew little about hunting, I slowly had to break her in. Each Sunday we have the opportunity to enjoy Sunday dinner with my family where the hunting channel is usually on. This meant that she was "forced" to watch hunting. When she started out watching she couldn't stand to watch the animal get shot, but now she will watch and let me know if it was a good shot or not. She's has learned how to tell the difference between a mule deer and a whitetail. She definitely has made me proud.
She Loves to FishMy family usually makes a trip to Henry's Lake and my wife had never been so I decided that it was time. I took her on the fishing trip back in 2008 and let's just say that she knows how to fish. She's still a little weary with putting the worm on the hook so I baited the hook for her and let her do the rest. As she was reeling in the fish I caught a glimpse of the fish and let everyone on the boat know that it was a BIG fish. It got closer and closer and it kept on getting bigger. We finally landed the monster and my wife was extremely excited.

She Loves to ShootI also bought her a bow so she could get into archery. She told me that she would never hunt which I am never going to force her to do. But she does enjoy hunting targets. She loves to visit the 3D archery range with me and she is great company as well as some great competition! We love to go out in the evenings when it is nice and have a friendly competition out at the range. I am perfectly content with my wife being interested in hunting just targets. She did mention that she would be willing to try bowfishing this year so this summer we will be visiting the reservoir in search of some carp.
