    as some of you may know, my wife
    has acquired a new hobby: hunting
    some photos are here
    and the story of her first Bison hunt in 2001
    is published along with a photo in the
    current issue of GUNS magazine in the
    column written by Clint Smith

    my wife, I think I will keep her

    interesting anecdote.

    the first time i went to thunder ranch i inquired after Clint
    just how i might get my wife to come down and take a class.

    Clint replied, "You don't. She either wants to come on her own,
    or she doesn't come down."

    I encouraged my wife to shoot and hunt with me.
    but she "wasn't sure about this gun thing."
    Surprizingly, one day she TOLD ME she wanted to go to Thunder Ranch.
    (in hindsight, that may have only been self preservation on her part)

    She attended Ladies Defensive Handgun that first time,
    where SHE was invited to go Bison hunting
    and I was invited to be "photo boy."
    Subsequent to LDG she has returned without me several times
    to take other classes.

    While at another class she noticed how intimidated the men are of
    a woman who is competent with her pistol and her gear. (They don't
    even seem to notice how she shoots!)
    After the third day or so, the men actually start to talk to her.
    One inquired how he could get his wife to come down to TR
    and Wanda replied:
    "You don't. She either wants to come on her own,
    or she doesn't come down."

    Truly a wonderful life. First, Doc gets in the TR catalogue not once but twice. Now Mrs. Doc is modeling for gun mags. Good things do happen to good people.

    For those of you who do not know the Docs, they are living proof that those who shoot together stay together. Knowing the Docs inspires me to leave the office and maybe, just maybe, ask a girl out for coffee. Guns and women DO mix--go figure.:D

    Mrs. Doc, stress relief? Had not considered that. Putting up with a house full of males, and all their petty problems, can really test a woman. This must be why women always want me to take them shooting after only a few dates ("geez, doesn't he ever shut up.").:p

    Congrats on gracing the "Guns" issue. It should be a top seller thanks to you. Does Doc have it framed and up in his reception area yet???

    Hope the boys are well. (Nephew #4 is due in December).
