I have the same problem. My wife hates it when I go on a hunt for any extended period of time. I usually bargain like heck and do whatever she wants in the months leading up to my hunt with the express understanding that she will not whine about my hunt. One year I sent her to Hawaii with the girls. So I guess I do whatever it takes to get on my hunts and keep peace at home! Luckily she is usually pretty fair in her demands.
