    Default New hunter

    Well Tracy is licensed and ready to go. I figured she would only be willing to chase small game but when she found out the moose tags didn't cost more she asked for one!

    Big Mistake.
    Once she finds out how easy it is and how much fun there is to be had, you'll have a hard time slipping out of the house for a day on your own.
    Hope she gets a moose on the very first outing.

    Brother she already follows me on ever hunt she can! All this changes is now I have some help fillin' the freezer.

    Seriously I'm very proud of Tracy, she has come a long way from the Detroit born and raised city girl I first met and who wouldn't want there best friend on a hunt...........in fact this may just change my whole stance on hunting solo!

    Glad to hear that another man's wife from the city has fully embraced the outdoors way of life. I love having my wife along, and she certainly was a huge help in filling the freezer this year with her caribou. I wish the same success upon Tracy as Sara has enjoyed. May your freezer be full and your marriage a stronger one due to your time together afield!

    I think sharing hunts leads to a greater understanding of our better halves, improves the view and warms the nights.

    That being said goats and sheep are still strictly a solo hunt for me. If Tracy can come through like Sara did I'll be spending allot more time above treeline!

    hey mine is still bent i knocked her up two years ago.... cruising the ponds today searching for her cow... she said... well maybe next year...


    you know the one bad thing about her cow tag i did not take into account

    was she is limited to ONLY that area... she can not hunt a bull and can not hunt a cow outside that zone...

    Tracy trail bossing a glacier hike 7 months prego! Having a bun in the oven dosen't slow her down at all.

    Her OBGYN was not very pleased about this trip!

    HAHA..don't worry Rick. My wife's the same way. 2 years ago she didn't even enjoy climbing up the mountains due to vertigo and feeling unstable. Now she'll follow me up the sheep/goat mountains in all but the nasty crags. It'll come with time as well. Congrats on getting her all set with liscense and tags, always fun to have the wife along on the hunt. Best hunting partner I can think of. Plus don't mind cuddling in the tent for warmth, get a little awkward with anyone else.

    Good luck to Tracy, Rick, and glad to see another woman and partner join the hunting ranks.

    I must be the odd one out......I got my Denver city boy husband interested in hunting. He'd never even contemplated it before he met me.

    My fiancee is the same way. Pregnant or not,s he's still up for a weekend in the woods. She's begging me to setup a fly-in caribou trip for our 1yr anniversary nextfall. Not sure what to do. I don't think she realizes how much more work I'd hafta pull.

    Congrats
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed
