    Sounds like a woman I was seeing down in Laramie a few years ago, draw results had just come out and I drew my elk tag, so I took vacation and September, and she made plans to go to California or something, and I told her I was goin hunting while she was gone; well that didn't go over too well and she said she was going to make me give up on hunting. I left her right then at that moment

    The older I get the more I think about hunting, I call it "dry hunting".

    I'm not afraid to go anywhere on my own, but I have a 2 year old boy and can't wait till he's old enough to go. I sure hope he takes a shine to it, we are already having debates in the house "Dada, no hunting, watch elmo!". Ha!

    In the mean time, I've been "cultivating" a few hunting partners. Find people you like who are good people but not as into hunting or maybe a different kind of hunting and introduce them to it. No shortage of waterfowl hunters around here, but not many willing to drive 22 hours straight then go spend a week in the back country. Then you set the "norm" while you are teaching them. The couple guys I've beeen taking think 16 mile days with a 50 lb pack and sleeping 4 hours is just how you get around, they are too green to know better.

    I hunt with nobody but my brother and my niece. She has been hunting hard since she was 12. We have hunted with a few people over the years, and most never want to come back, nor were they invited. My brother and I have also worked side by side for the same steel fab shop for over 22 years. We definetely have that unspoken language, and I think that makes it uncomfortable when we try to hunt with other people. My niece has learned to hunt like us, and I would put her up against any guy out there. Once in awhile we will try to cave to the pressure of work, but one of us is always pushing the others to get it together and get out there.

    My oldest son is 18 and hunted when he was young. I hope he picks it up now that he is out of school.

    I'm so sad to hear about your ex trying to put a damper on hunting but even more importantly putting a damper on you subjecting your daughter to hunting, enjoying the outdoors together with your daughter and for you to be an influence and a role model to her that way Jen Bickel.

    Family splits with kids are never much fun, having gone through a divorce 17 years ago myself when my kids were very little, it has had its share of challenges along the way. I'm hoping and praying your ex will support you better in the future, even if hunting and the outdoors is not his thing. Not only support for your sake as a person and parent but for your daughter's and children's sake. I'm hoping you all will continue to be able to enjoy hunting and the outdoors together whenever possible. Hoping the best for you all Jen.

    My hunting partner is about 20yrs older than me. He also introduced me to bow hunting which is probably why our styles of hunting are very similiar. Even though he is older than he, he is just s crazy as me when it comes to certain places. He liked to think he's the brains a and I'm the muscle, haha. I can honestly say I don't know how it will end up in a couple of years when he can't make on certain trips. I do have a few life long friends that would go anywhere with me but feel like it will not be the same

    Hey Kevin,
    Well spoken. I too have been divorced for 17 years. Over the years I have tried to give my son exposure to hunting since he could walk. I still remember one time when he was around 4 yrs old. We were glassing and my son says "daddy, I think see a deer". I had him show me where he was glassing. It was a stump about 200 yds. away. I told him good spot. Looks just like a deer but I think it is a stump. I was proud that he found it. I remember having him in a baby pack on my back while bowhing deer on Kiabab.He would be babbling away while I "pretending" to hunt. He was 21 this July. I withdrew his Wy. app this year because he had a good job oppertunity coming up the end of July. Well he got the job so it was a good call but I will miss my favorite hunting partner with me in Wy. and on my other hunts this year. His mom has always been supportive of him hunting with me and I get along with her like a best friend. She would give me crap sometimes when I was married about going hunting all the time. I always reminded her that I told her thats what I did before we got married. She was with me once in Ut. when I shot a buck before married. She didn't care for the sight of gutting it out much and never went after that. She's definitely not an anti hunter though. I still have friends I hunt with but it's extra special when your children hunt with you and want to learn from you and awesome when they shoot their first deer, etc..

    I am one of those people from the flatlands who loves/lives to hunt out west and have done it for years. I have tried several different times to get people to go out with me, but it seldom works out. I have had some that went and then were worried about getting lost, or running into predators. My favorite was when two guys were "committed" to going, and then called me the week before we left and backed out. It would be great to have a hunting partner on these trips. I don't even mind hauling an elk out on my own, but it would be a lot more fun to get to share in other people's hunts each evening. I have tried to get to know some of the people in the area that I hunt, but most of them are gun hunters and I only bow hunt. I am sure one of these days it will work out, or not, either way I am going to be sitting on the side of a mountain in September!
