    Talking Wifes 1st...and 2nd caribou ever!

    My wife has put up with my hunting for 16 years now (I think) and hasn't gone out with me much. Now our kids are a little older and can be left home a lone while we go so she goes a little more. Last weekend was warm so I talked her into going caribou hunting. She ended up tagging two bulls. To say the least she was very excited. She also killed a moose this year, her 1st big game animal ever! So hopefully, little by little, she'll catch the bug. What a great New Years Eve it turned out to be. Way to go Kammie!

    That is awesome Goaty, nothing like times in the field with the spouse. She is becoming quite the huntress. Her smile speaks volumes.

    Happy New Year
