Just wondering if anyone can give me some advice. I hunt out west basically one week per year. This year i'm going to CO for either muzzleloader (if I draw) or OTC archery elk in the wilderness for one week during rut peak. After watching David Long's hunt over and over, I also want to go chase some mulies with a bow at 12000 feet opening week. The wife has a hard time when I leave for one week. How do some of you talk the spouse into letting you leave her and the kids alone for hunts?
