If you are a an enthusiastic and confirmed hunter, but your family members do not like your camping hunting passion, and your wife does not hunt at all, perhaps you are missing out on what could be the best hunting partner you've ever had. The future of hunting depends on growth. Nothing can be more positive than the introduction of our sport to women. Turning camping hunting into a true family activity is a credible way to gain acceptance and approval for the non-hunting public.Some essential things to keep in mind will help you swing the scales in the favor of success. First, when outfitting your mate with equipment and hunting tools, do it right. Make sure that she uses equipment that is fitted to her personally. Often you can hear of husbands who pass down their old equipment so that they can get the new. This is counterproductive and it is just plain selfish.
Especially with archery gear, your wife is going to perform much better if she is shooting equipment sized to fit her physical needs. The better she shoots, the more she will enjoy what she is doing. She wants to excel at what she is doing. With poorly fitted equipment, discouragement and then a total loss of excitement will quickly follow inferior performance. It will inevitably lead to the fizzling interest for camping hunting.
Her own, NEW, camouflage clothing is important. Most men don't think twice about spending money on their hunting needs. Let that same unconcerned generosity flow over to your partner's needs. A trip to the pro shop for gadgets is one of our simple joys. Share that joy with your mate, it will pay big dividends in the end.
Sharing is a key word in introducing your spouse to the camping hunting pleasures. If you have several good stands, be a sport and give the best one to your wife. The success of the harvest is going to deepen her appreciation for your favorite pastime.
Help accelerate her growth in every way you can. One of the benefits of her learning to hunt from her husband is that he is an experienced teacher. You can prevent her from making all those many mistakes that you did while you were learning. Most importantly, you must be patient and proud. It is far more important to take the time to answer questions and get to the stand five minutes late, rather than be rude and ruin an entire day's hunt. An honest and concentrated effort to fill the time spent in the field with camaraderie and warm sharing will pay big dividends.
Each year you should try to plan a new trek to somewhere far away place where you share the love of the hunt and your love for each other. If you are looking for a good camping hunting partner and your wife does not currently hunt, begin to encourage her to join you. Done properly, you will find yourself in one of the most productive partnerships imaginable. Both in the field and at home. The practice experience filled with challenge is another special thing that will bring you closer together.
The point is that with proper encouragement and a thoughtful presentation, you could be sleeping with the best camping hunting partner you ever had.
