    And your reply was...................?

    Thinking about the above conversation in more depth, I came to the realisation that its another of those female questions that there is no correct answer for.

    If you say yes an argument will ensue.

    If you say no, she will come back with " So you think I am bad, but not as bad as the video". Then the argument will follow.

    That means you cant use a yes/no answer and will have to string a sentence together. It is an immutable law that more than 3 words in a sentence to your significant other is able to be interpreted in a multitude of ways. Then an argument will follow.

    The only correct way to answer the question is to throw yourself on your back to the ground, put your arms and legs in the air exposing your stomach, poke your tongue out the side of your mouth and wag your tail. Hopefully she will scratch your belly and walk away.
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Lol. I may be just a bit worse. I get text messages while hunting all the time, dad gets very angry with me in December.

    Where I hunt, cell phones don't work so it doesn't matter.

    Fe always wanted to talk. She loves to fish and while she was fishing she would go all day without a word, but as soon as we were out in the deer blind she had a lot to say. Then when we were going home she'd bitch because we never saw a deer! Women!!!

    Lol. . It's worse now because I don't see my family every day, and I want to talk for hours. It's a girl thing I guess.

    Isn't that what your hunting stand is for...sorry couldn't resist!:applause:

    Guess I am lucky, mine has no desire to go hunting.
    She offered to go to the range to keep me company yesterday, could see it in her eyes saying: please say no please let me sleep in, I really don't want to go but I am being nice.

    She's a very good hunter. I really thinks she likes the peace and solitude sitting on her deer stand. We got her a box blind to hunt out of this fall, which she's decorated the inside. Let's just say you can tell a gal hunts that stand and most of guys steer clear:roll2:

    Taken the wife hunting a couple of times. All she wants to do is decorate the blind.

    Damn! She hit that at your place?

    Yepper, I actually rattled the big boy in for her. He was one of three deer on my neighbors and mine shoot list two years ago. We'd been working with our game biologist on our game management program and watching this deer and two other for three years. Everything was looking so good until my knucklehead neighbor put the high fence up 18 months ago. Last year was slim pickings in the deer department! This year I have one that's close to hers on camera and another couple that should be fantastic in a year or two.

    My wife beat you to the blind decorating, she asked if I'd paint the inside pink! I responded with a resounding NO!

    Lol. My parents always said I could chew the ears off a brass monkey. I was ok until around 15-16 and then I became a social butterfly.

    I'm an anti-social butterfly. . .which would be more of a social wasp, I guess. Bilingual training? Hell, I don't want to talk to most of the people who speak English.

    My wife and I adhere to the old ways - I hunt (she's only interesting in cooking it) ; she gathers (I'm only interested in eating it).

    I've only been married once. Taking her camping was as much adventure as either of us could stand.

    On the other hand a man and his wife visited me at my elk camp once. I told them about a bear encounter I had earlier and gave them directions to a good spot to hunt said bear. They got the bear a few hours later. They were very nice and seemed to both enjoy the hunt a great deal.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    My last deer was in California, shot it on Mt. Gleason and my wife was the one that spotted it and alerted me.
    She has been bird hunting with me also. She tells people she is my bird dog.
