New hunter question.

2 posts in this topic

Okay, I do not know what happened, but it did.

My wife decided she wanted to try bow hunting this year, I am pumped.

I told her when she was shooting her bow I would never do anything to wreck what we had going, due to we really like the 3D shoots. You can look back on earlier posts I am sure.

I guess my questions are as follows, do I hang 2 tree stands everywhere I hunt, make her shoot out of a blind?

I know I need to find her camo and broadheads,(shopping on my turf, I like it). I shoot the Rage 2 blade and I read there is another Rage 2 blade, but smaller.

Ant comments or advise on your better half hunting for the 1st time? Any recommendations on setting stands and broadheads?

I know when my father brought me out deer hunting the first time I was like 8 years old and I just sat in the stand with him, he made me so comfortable so that the experience wouldn't deter me from wanting to go out again. Use the same concept as with a little kid,(even if I had gotten frost bite it still wouldn't keep me from the woods) get her some very warm boots so her feet don't get cold, good wind proof clothing helps too. do everything in your power to make her as comfortable as possible. Yes a blind would be a good way to start. and yes rage has a 1.5" cutting swath bh now too.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
