GIve Up on Hunting?

THinking i might give up on hunting. seems every time i go an argument starts and get no joy or relaxing time out of it. just a thought to vent and see what you all would have to say about it.

An argument about what? I hunt to relax and see no reason to argue....... Whiskey offers good advice -- find new hunting partners.........

thank you all for you advice and suggestions. only problem with Wiskey's advice is i do hunt alone a lot of the time but the arguments starts when i get back home Brick Wall,) that makes it a little harder. but to answer everyones post. i have not giving up on hunting and have even add more seasons and since my neighbor just gave me a new bow set up i now have more reason and time to go out.

Ahhh.........now it all makes sense lol You could do like Don and trade her in for a newer model Think (Just kiddin')
Maybe buy her something really nice to butter her up before you head out, or try getting her a puppy Think

If you get a puppy make sure it's a hunting dog! Laugh Laugh Laugh
I make sure my wife gets to go do stuff in August and September. I make sure she gets plenty of girl time with her friends, or time from the kids gardening and such. That took care of the arguments for me. This year I buttered her up a little more by getting her a Ford Fusion last week. That should secure my coyote hunting and looking for deer sheds this winter. Good Luck! And don't give up!

If your argument is when you get home, then think about taking her along. I have lots of clients that take there wives along on the hunt. It is the opportunity for both of you to get away and relax.

the only thing worse than a male chauvinist is a woman that wont do what shes told!!!! just kidding i had the same problem with an ex girl friend always had something to say about how much time i spent in the woods, notice i said ex girlfriend, but anyway that's water under the bridge, hunting and being with my thoughts in the woods is what keeps me on a even keel with this whole crazy world thank god my wife understands and its never an issue, if it makes you happy keep doing it life is to short to be miserable!
