I've tried for 19 years to get my wife to go hunting. Got her into a buddy stand last year but only as a spectator(she didn't want to hunt). If she ever decided to actually hunt, i would give her the first shot. The hunting tradition is dying out and if first time hunters are successful they are a lot more likely to stick with it. When my boys started hunting it was more exciting for me to watch them. I took pride in their success and any man worth a darn should feel the same way if he takes the woman he loves hunting.

About have my youngest daughter convinced to study/take the TX Hunter Safety class so she can go hunting this fall. She's pretty good at those shoot-em up video games and that's 'normally' a good indication of how she'll do with the real thing, but I'm not going to take that one to the bank just yet. This is about the time I wish I had a good .22 to see how she does with a rifle. It's a lot cheaper to shoot than the .243 or .244 that I have in the safe. (Both of them run $17 to $30 for a box of 20 rds) I will just wait and see how things go as the season approaches and if she's willing to crawl out of bed at oh-dark-thirty to go hunting with me.

She may be ready for hunting but nobody gets excited about 0dark30!

I hunt with my wife some times
But she doesn't like or follow all of my rules
I feel shes better off on a stand by her self far away from me
She does have fun

Hunting camps is a tad different in my book. All guys, usually all serious hunters. The female would have to be up to par hunting wise and camping out in the woods to be included on that. So I will agree with you on that scenerio. My wife would stay at the house.
