    Love to see the ladies with a gun. I raised two daughters and both like to shoot.

    It's always good to see girls and women hunting.
    I've had more fun teaching my wife to hunt than doing it myself. I can only imagine the pride you feel teaching your daughter.

    You are lucky to have both your wife and daughter in to shooting and hunting.
    How did they do deer hunting?
    Looks like a nice set of woods to hunt in.

    It sure seems like more ladies hunt up north than down south.

    I see about 3 to 4 females hunting each time I go to a public WMA. Mostly, they are in their 20s and 30s.
    One of the most successful women I know of is a 40+ divorcee who kills more and bigger bucks than I do.

    My daughter shot a 4 pointer two hours after the photo was taken.
    Her friend had missed a doe the day before.

    It might depend on what kind of hunting we are talking about. Across the board I believe more women/females hunt today...than when I was growing up. But even back then....it was not uncommon for the 'girls' to go along on bird hunts (primarily Dove and Quail) where I live (Texas). And I don't mean as just an excuse to be around the boys. These ladies could SHOOT!

    Deer hunting (in Texas) has been somewhat a family affair for many decades here and a good many Ladies make at least a few forays out into the fields. My own Daughter started hunting (Deer, Hogs, Birds, Varmints) at age 9. She is 33 yrs. old now and still hunts as she has time. It is worth mentioning...she has consistently out-hunted her Boy Cousins over the years in friendly competitions and they would be the first to admit it.

    I don't know how this compares to the Northern States...but I am pleased to see women participating in the hunting/outdoor sports, regardless their geographic location.

    Great job raising your daughter and she has now got her friend hunting . That is good for the future of hunting and gun rights .

    They both have boyfriends who never hunted before who want to so it will be a case of the women teaching the men.

    Historically, a hunter is a provider. These days... and this is not a comment on any individual, and it varies as to why and to what degree... too many "men" haven't learned how to be men and provide. My more recent understanding of Appalachian culture is that, while a man is going about his days work, his wife might get in a little small game hunting midday to have some meat for supper and maybe the next day or two. So, with division of labor, they're both providing. In our more modern context, the guys may have to just check the egos at the gate and be willing to learn. There's always something to learn. Wanting to learn helps.

    A tradition is being passed on to a newcomer. Does not matter who is teaching who. Awesome to see youngsters taking up the sport.

    I recall some years back, one of the guys in country music was always on the Outdoor Channel... said he learned turkey hunting as a kid in Texas... from his grandmother.

    Hear now,

    There's only one way to choose a dog: from a proven hunting lineage. In some cases when they don't have a long history of hunting in previous generations, a sufficient amount of dedicated training can overcome the root problem. Some need more time than others but after two seasons at most you know which way it's going to be. Dedication, enthusiasm and will to learn is everything.

    The same principle applies to in-laws.

    Usually when our prospective in-laws-to-be meet me and the rest of the family, they get a pretty clear picture of what's going on. The rest is up to them. Then again, we welcome proficient kitchen hands warmly as well while the rest of us hunt. :evil:

    While one keeps the fire going and a pot of stew going, it frees others to hunt. Another may process firewood or meat while another may have to go for water. Who's seeing to the horses? Who-all's working hides into buckskin? It takes everybody.
