    My hunting partner is my brother. We have hunted together our whole lives and know exactly what each other is thinking, what should be done and how to interpret each others thoughts without saying a word. It was worked out very well for us over the years.

    More recently we have brought along our cousin. He started with nothing and we molded him into the type of hunter we are and things have been working out for us as well. If you find someone who you are compatible with and if they have the drive to hunt or drive to want to hunt you could possibly mold them into the type of hunter you are.

    When I was younger I used to go with my cousins a lot but they pretty much grew away from it. But I'm still pretty fortunate my hunting partner is still my Dad. After all he is the one who taught me what I know and got me started. Now I handle all the applications and research while he waits until I tell him where we are hunting for the year.
    I met a couple of new friends while getting my master's degree. Some of them really like to hunt. One guy can be somewhat of an a%&hole when it comes to hunting. He want's to learn all your tricks and places to hunt but when it comes to him sharing his places to go and ideas he's a bit shady about it. But I got another good friend that I met out here and we get along fairly well when it comes to sharing research ideas so this year him and I put in and got drawn to go archery elk hunting in NM. So we'll see if how that works out.

I have similar memories from three years on being in the outdoors with my dad and I miss him as he passed away several years ago.

    I've been working on my wife slowly to see if I one day can get her into hunting. Perhaps that would make for a good new thread? "How to get your spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend into hunting." My wife puts up a lot with my hunting obsessions and does go backpacking, camping and hiking often with me. She is a awesome wife in every way but it would be so cool if she shared that same hunting obsession too. Some guys or gals perhaps want a break from their better half when they go hunting, but not me. I hope you will find that boyfriend like your brother mthuntress that will go the extra mile and be a good hunting partner too.

    This is my wife and daughter. Both with their first big game animals. both love to hunt and are my new hunting partners. My wife enjoys hunting as a family and we will do it everytime she draws a tag. My hunting buddys come to join in for the memories too but its not as hard core with the family, its more about getting out there and enjoying having family hunting trip.

    Very nice Ikeepitcold. Those are awesome pictures. I've taken my family, camping fishing, pheasant hunting but the big game has eluded them so far. For Valentines day my wife gave me a gift certificate for taking her on trip of choice, this includes hunting. My plan is to take her on a big game outing. I'm not sure if she will catch the hunting bug or not but I hope she will have as good a time as I surly will. I just hope I'll be able to help in making it fun for her.

    I don't see how she won't get hooked. But you said it. Make it fun for them. It will make it or break it for her. If she sees how hard we work to find big trophy animals before they get the bug it could turn her off of the hunting thing all together.

    My wife used to shoot & hunt with me, but she has had 2 replacement hips and 2 replacement knees! She still shoots trap and fishes, but cannot do the hiking I do. She is 69 also. Used to like to shoot doves and waterfowl. But she would rather fish now.

    My wife loves to fish and play on the ATVs. She has no interest in hunting. Antelope hunting in Wyoming is about the only time that I hunt all day with someone. I now live on the other side of the state from my hunting buddies. Every few years we sometimes make it work where we are all in elk camp. We make it to the spot and everyone gets to work setting up the tents, collecting firewood and all else that goes along with it. We scout together, but come opening morning, we each usually go our seperate ways. When we get back to camp, we always hope to see blood on someones hands - When that happens, we celebrate a little then get up the next morning and go help pack the meat out. This is the way the 4 of us have done it for the last 20 years or so. I prefer to hunt elk by myself but it is great to have someone to help pack. I have a friend at work - he lives in Eagle, Co - that badly wants to go hunting for the 1st time. If I can make schedules work, I might take him this year.

    While I was dating my wife I took her turkey hunting with me and she loved it!! She was so excited that I got a bird while she was there she broke my blind from jumping up and down. Since then we had daughter Alayna and things around the house has been pretty busy. My wife enjoys being out doors but I can't convince her to hunt deer with me. I got her a bow and she seems to like to shoot it however right after I got it for her, her belly got in the way from being pregnant. So she hasn't shot it since then. We should start back up again since our daughter is 18 months now.

    Either way it's tough finding someone who hunts the way you do and you get along with. Sometimes I think I am being too picky but I do want to be safe and I find a lot of things people do really bother me about being safe. I am not saying I am over cautious just that I am asking for them to have common sense.

    I would like my family to be my hunting group just that it is hard getting my wife to enjoy it.

    Thanks for all the post great to hear your stories.
