Just ask your wife how the reunion was when you get back from hunting!

We always had family reunions at the deer camp. I feel for you man, that's the price we pay when we marry outside of the redneck circle

My wife didn't even expect me to go when it was just lease work day. Much less opening day. I have been know to skip a family reunion just because I was thinking about hunting.

I hunt with one of my best friends on our lease near Ballinger. His 50TH Class Reunion is SATURDAY in Belton, so I have made arrangements to hunt closer to home at another friends place this week-end.
My Wire's 55th Class Reunion is Sat, Oct 14th, so that week-end is screwed up as well.

You should be able to hunt, shoot, track and process your opening morning kill before the brisket is sliced at lunch time. What's the problem?

I've been put in the same situation a couple times...but I always choose hunting lol. My wife expects it though, and she really doesn't even ask. If somebody plans something for opening weekend, she'll just tell them upfront that she will make it but I won't be there. Hope it works out!!

It appears to me that you married too close to home. It helps if the closest relative is at least four hundred miles away.

We tend to have family "representatives" attend various functions so they can fill in other branches of the family on recent past and current developments. Especially, if long distance is involved. Let your wife take along pictures of you and some of your recent bows and your LDPs with the bear,pics of your brother and that great country up there. Maybe videotape a message expressing your regrets about missing and knowing that you're with them in spirit, but you had a previous long-standing engagement. You should be golden. You're welcome.

We've been doing this for 30+ years. We hunt in the AM, everybody shows up and eats lunch. We hunt the PM, eat supper, and they leave.

Works well for everyone.

My wife just knows that I dont attend weddings, reunions, etc on weekends during hunting season and really dont like to attend them outside of hunting season either.
