I'm happy I live in CA. None of that where I live.
Really? 250,000 thousand people killed about 40,000 deer in Kalifornia last year. :scratchhead:I'm happy I live in CA. None of that where I live.
Yea. Not where I live. No one I know. Which was what I said in my post. "Not where I live".Really? 250,000 thousand people killed about 40,000 deer in Kalifornia last year. :scratchhead:

I don't even know anyone who owns a gun.
Depends... if there are no malls or anything nearby and you don't shop online, it COULD be an overnight, or even a week long trip. I still wouldn't do it, but it's not impossible.Going shopping is not an overnight trip, and it isn't for days at a time and it isn't culturally accepted even if it were.
Right here... Yes, I can totally see this one. But for those who do it just to get away... I have a problem with that. They don't call THOSE ones deer hunters around here... they call them "deer drinkers"I will try to explain how it is for ME. Hunting is not a hobby, it is part of who I am and what I do. I AM a hunter.
I hunt many species of animals, and provide food for several disadvantaged families throughout the year.
The time I spend hunting does not take away from any of my other "duties".
Golf is a hobby, bowling is a hobby. If I could never bowl, that would be ok. If I could never hunt, I would be an even meaner, more miserable SOB than I already am.
I'm trying to think of something that women have that equals hunting and I can't. Something that is a hobby but women insist that they are entitled to do it for day's at a time away from their spouse no matter what else is going on in life.
I know that people in other areas of the US or other countries might not get it, but in some states it is a given right that men will spend four weekends in a row away from their wives hunting. It doesn't matter who is sick, what else is happening, who is in town, whose birthday it is. The man MUST go hunting. Literally it is as if it is an imperative and for a woman to even try to suggest he not go would be like turning the order of the universe on its ear.
And I think I want my hunting. I want the god given right to go out in the woods for a month worth of weekends by myself and be alone, leave the kids and spouse behind and just be in stillness away from the responsibilities of my life. And no one can question me or guilt me out of it. Is that too much to ask for? Seriously.

I have been a hunter much longer than being a husband/father/lover etc. Things like this should be discussed PRIOR to any long term commitments.I will try to explain how it is for ME. Hunting is not a hobby, it is part of who I am and what I do. I AM a hunter.
What is your family situation like? What if your wife said "I am a traveler" and insisted on going on road trips without you for the same length of time that you hunt? Just curious.Steve she would drive across the state to pick up rescue dogs and being them back to a shelter.

If a potential mate had said she was a (whatever) and I didn't or wouldn't agree or conform, she would no longer be considered a potential mate.
The reverse holds true as well.
