I got something that will make you all chuckle. It's not a buddy that ditches out on us. He is more like one of those buddies that we would rather him stay home for several reasons. He always invites himself, never chips in for gas, food, beer, etc. He shows up and eats all our food, uses all our gas and drinks a good % of the beer. He always is too cheap to buy ammo or arrows, so we usually end up giving him some field points or a box of shells. He bitches the entire time we go out too. Worst of all he is one of those guys that has to one up everybody. The guy is a TOOL!!!
It's gotten to the point that we try to avoid him entirely around hunting season. He makes each trip a disaster. Hunting with the guys is a way for me to relax, talk about old stories, bond with my fellow man... but this guy ruins it for everyone. It's so bad that we have been flipping coins to see who gets to hunt with him on the weekends. LOL
I had the same problem a long time ago. What we did was sell him his shells, arrows, beer, or what ever when he showed up at camp empty handed. It only took one season for him to take a hint.
As far as the other half. My ex used to tell me to get out there and kill something. She loved the meat and even would help along with the butchering of the deer or elk. She just didn't like the idea of shooting the animal or the packing of it up and over a hill to get it out not to mention what she would do while I was cleaning it out.
