I want to wish my mom, mother in law and my wife and every other mom a Happy Mothers Day. This is the 1st year I don’t get to spend with my mom, but I will remember her anyways and also all the other special women in my life.
I don’t have any kids but those 3 women puts up alot of things I do. They all support and listens to my stories among helping me out from watching my dog when I am hunting to washing and cleaning some of my eqiupment when I don’t have time to do it. I know my posse can attest to the support from our wives and family. We have even more responsibilites than the average hunters. I feel so blessed that I have a understanding family.
I know alot of hunters that can’t go out as much as they want simply because their “better half” will give him grief or will not let them go out at all. This often makes me wonder why a woman do this. They are denying a man what it is genetically embedded in us, we are hunters, not gatherers, not coach sitters or lawn mowers, HUNTERS! I am not advacating that men neglect your honey do list or ignore your family, but wives please don’t deny us what we are born to do.
I asked my wife why she is so supportive on what I do. She answered “You could be doing alot worse, you don’t drink, gamble or hang out at bars. I feel pretty lucky your vice is productive.”
I also use common sense. The archery deer season starts here in Michigan on October 1st and lasts until December 31st, it’s a long season, so this is what I do until the rut and after it. I go when she is at work or in the morning before she wakes up if we have the same day off, then we have the whole day together, keeping her happy which in turn lets me do what I enjoy, HUNTING THE RUT EVERY MOMENT I CAN!
I again want to wish all you mothers and wives out there a happy mothers day enjoy your day and please try to understand us men, we mean well, and we do love you it’s just hunting season is something we look forward to, it’s just how God made us.
I love you Mom, Susan, Ma ma Kay and every other women that has touched me and supported me.
Matt, you can speak like no other, you are special to me, like a son, your mom raised you well, I miss your mom and now Pat, there special women in our lifes
