Fiance's First Deer

21 posts in this topic

Saturday morning my finace was able to get her first deer ever! I recently bought her a bow as she was interested in shooting. She decided she wanted to come with us to ND for rifle season to try to arrow one. I knew it would be a little tougher this way but figured there was a chance. Saturday morning we set up on the corner of mature cottonwoods, corn, and a thick tree planting. All seperated by fire breaks. Luckily with all the snow that fell I was able to make a decent ground blind out of a 3 foot snow drift. About 15 minutes after we could shoot a doe starts working her way directly toward us. She makes it all the way to the edge of the trees in front of us meanwhile keeping a watchful eye on us. At this point she is only 10 yards away and decides that she wants nothing more of this situation. She turned around and took a few steps back into the trees and stopped broadside in an opening. Meanwhile my fiance drew and shot after the deer had stopped. She made a perfect shot! She double lunged the deer and it only went 40 yards. I think I was more excited than she was. It couldn't have worked out any better.

Thats awesome. Looks like a nice doe and a great morning to be out. Love the pictures of all the new hunters that are getting deer this year. Seems to be more than normal. Really appears to be more women in the outdoors. I'd love to get mine to hunt, but its not her thing...

Great Job!

Hopefully I can get my wife to take an interest in bowhunting in the future. It would be a great way spend time together. With jobs and other stuff, it's difficult to find a hobby we both can enjoy together. Congrats to your fiance getting her first deer.

Man, you have totally screwed yourself on this one. Hunting is when a guy can be alone and solve the worlds problems - getting away from the wife :)Now, the wife will be out hunting and you have to stay home to take care of the kids smile

Kidding - well done - and congratulations!

    • Nope, they've always been much too spineless to receive my vote.   I've always been more libertarian minded, but without the crazy parts. You have to include human and societal behavior into the equation to get ideals to actually work in the real world.      
    • 34 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY today and I am eating strawberries and drinking lemonade, more about that later. Wednesday I did make it to the Resort and I spent the afternoon relaxing. I went in search of Elmer as I saw his truck parked out back. I went up to his room and tapped on the door only to hear what I thought was a loud grunt. I took that to mean "Come in" and so I did. I opened the door and was hit by a wall of heat. Elmer was sitting in a wood rocking chair, with a book in hand looking over a pair of cheater reading glasses at me. "Close the door" he commanded and I did. "Sit" he said and I did in an overstuffed chair in front of the window where a stream of sunshine was pouring into the room.   I sat back deep in the chair and relaxed. I let out some air and sat back even deeper into the cushions and I told myself this is what I was needing. I spoke out loudly to Elmer "Wife call?" And Elmer nodded his head yes. I then closed my eyes and just relaxed, Elmer already knew why I was there. I was almost ready for a nap when I felt then saw a hardback book fall into my lap. I reached down and picked it up and saw it was the new Clive Clusser book that I had bought Elmer for Christmas. I know this because I has written inside the book "Merry Christmas Elmer from Bobby." Also inside the book was a punch card from the Masterbaiters Shop for suckers, I think it was being used as a book marker. The book had not been read yet and I looked at Elmer and he said "Knock yourself out" When I bought the book for Elmer I was going to buy myself a copy to but had not gotten around to it.   I opened the book up and bent back the hard book covers slowly and then I went through the book every hundred pages or so and bent them back. This is how you break the binder on a hardback book without breaking the book. I heard the tapping of a glass on wood and I looked up to see Elmer offering me a empty glass and he said "Open the little fridge" and I did. Inside I found a cold carton of pink lemonade and a plastic container of strawberries. I took them both out and set them down on the little wood table between us. "Well pour" Elmer said and so I did. A few minutes later I was a few pages into Clives book and I was sipping on cold lemonade, eating strawberries in a warm room that was no longer hot with sunshine on my shoulders in a place far far away. Just the way I wanted to be the day before a visit to the hospital   I spent the afternoon and went late into the evening reading until I was done with the book. I closed it with a satisfied feeling like all of Mr. Clusser’s books leave me with. Strawberries and lemonade were long gone but it did not stop me from tipping my glass over my open mouth where I hoped I might get just one last drop but I did not. I said good night to Elmer and went down stairs where Chuck gave me a ride back to the cabin. Today finds me writing this story with a bowl of strawberries close at hand and a glass of lemonade. Not the same as summer but good enough for this time of year.   Sunshine Ray is a little off in his forecast. I did go to the hospital in sunny weather and I got all my tests done in record time. Every department I went to there was no waiting and I zipped right through. Today finds me in the den and although Ray’s forecast called for clouds he missed out on the rain that has been falling. Sitting here I can hear the water coming off the eves to make splattering sounds as it hits the snow on the ground. Ice dams on the roofs are gone, each time one slides off the roof Duncan starts barking and running around the cabin. Glad they are off the roof and even better they have come down when no one is beneath them to get hurt. Ray also forgot to mention that when it is not raining the snow fog moves in and if and when it gets cold out we are going to have ice every where here at Lake Iwanttobethere
