I am very fortunate to have a wife that is an avid hunter. She has used a handgun on occasion. She is even a member here.

My wife has taken a couple deer over the years with our 6.5x30JDJ Contender Super 14. She has also hunted for 35 years with a Browning BBR in 270 with a Leupold 2.5-10. A story goes with the Leupold scope. Her first year hunting with me she was using a 100 Winchester in 308 with an old Weaver 4X scope on it. I had her do some fire form practice with a Browning A Bolt in 257 Roberts AI with a new Leupold 2.5-10 scope on it. She informed me that before the next deer season she wanted a scope she could see through on her deer rifle. She could tell the difference between the old Weaver and the Leupold way back then. That is when I got her the BBR with the Leupold scope on it.

Though she?s not a handgun hunter, I am thankful that my wife hunts. With one possible exception.....almost all of her kills have been nicer trophies than mine! She?s walked many miles hunting for deer, elk, moose, bear and has helped backpack many pounds of meat back to the vehicle. If the country wasn?t to steep......more than a few elk quarters came out on her backpack! memtb

Been married for 36 years, at first I tried to introduce her to hunting but she didn't like it. Now years later I actually enjoy my hunting time alone. She has her things she does. It's worked for us and I don't have to share my gun money!

No. I?ve tried to get my wife to go hunting, even if just for the exercise, no luck. Fortunately, she has moved away from the fence and realizes that the future may be a bit scary, and is now ready to shoot and carry a handgun. I doubt that I will ever get her to hunt, but this is a start.

I have found there is no right or wrong on this question. so guys dont want their wife to hunt because it is their time. Others want
them to but they wont. And as I tell Dawn she is the total package and loves that she spends time in the field with me and puts meat in the freezer!

I was recently referred to as a bad caveman cause my wife killed a hog and was the provider and I was basically the chauffer and dishwasher!
\:\)
I told him I was glad she killed one as the pressure to get a hog was off of me. I can now relax and enjoy the hunt.

My wife has hunted with me for 25+ years[rifle 6.5 swede]. I cannot think of a better hunting partner. I consider myself to have had a good season when she gets her deer, whatever I kill is a bonus!

It?s all in fun Dave. You?re at least an average caveman.
I?ll tell you this, I sure as heck want you on my side in a handgun fight!

thanks Chuck, I can cook and do dishes with the best of them! Having you come back into camp with a dead hog with your 44 mag after everyone else couldn't do it over feeders, I want to be on your side.
