The hunt is on…

The hunt is on…

“That’s a good shirt for you to go hunting in.”

These were the words that left H’s mouth as we perused clothing at Sam’s one day before Christmas.

Hmm. Is he talking to me? I had a blank look on my face that he didn’t notice. Sure. Because I go hunting so muchas in NEVER!

I did go out turkey hunting one year because he and Andrew thought I needed to hear the turkeys gobble. If I remember correctly, I dozed through that.

Earlier this deer hunting season H mentioned I needed to get a hunting license and go hunting with him. He would get a gun ready for me.


  1. I have better things to do than sit in a tree at 5:30 am.
  2. He uses a climbing tree stand. I don’t believe I can conquer that technique.
  3. If by some miracle, I did happen to make it up that tree at 5:30 am, holding a gun, I don’t believe I would point it at a deer and shoot it.

Sometimes I just let him talk, shake my head, and walk away. I don’t think he notices. I do believe, though he will never admit it, he enjoys sitting in a tree watching the wildlife go by and filming it to show me later.

You still won’t see me sitting in a tree at 5:30 am to observe the wildlife. His videos will suffice.

  1. A warm bed on a cold fall or winter day is the best place to be at 5:30 am.

  2. My husband was like that with biking. I’ve never been a biking enthusiast. At least since I was 13. My husband bought me a very expensive model (that wasn’t purple!) 15 years ago. Maybe I clocked 50 miles on it. Maybe. Haven’t been on it in almost 10 years and I have no desire. He used to bike a lot but even he hasn’t biked in 1-1/2 years. I worry about balance and all that and quite frankly I don’t enjoy it. For me it’s like sitting in a tree at 5:30 a.m.
