Alright guys, (and ladies if any read this)
I am curious about your experiences on taking your wife hunting as your partner. Or for the ladies, your husband introducing you to hunting in Alaska. My wife has expressed interest in hunting with me to spend more time together and maybe actually shoot something.
I am approaching it like most men by obsessing about the gear she should have and trying to introduce her to it by sharing the sport as I have experienced it in Alaska the past five years. She grew up hunting and fishing in the lower 48, but hasn't hunted much since we were married 17 years ago. So she has quite a bit of experience, and a decent background.
There's a lot of room for error here on my part. Being obsessive is just my nature and could be the biggest problem. I plan to ask her to check out the Outdoors Women program at ADF&G. I've also been sending hunting stories to her and discussing them with her to help her build her knowlege base as well as learn a few things from her.
Anyway, if you have any ideas or sage advice / warnings please help a fellow hunter out.
