Default Taking the GF out

Well my girlfriend has been wanting to go sit with me. This will be her first time to ever go out in the woods hunting. So we are on our way to Houston County. Breaking out the 270 to see if we can’t get it done. Got a pic of a good 10. Feeders have been down for about a week and a half so gonna be hunting hand corn piles.

Any suggestions so I can make it as enjoyable for her as possible?

Don't expect her to act like a hunter. Try and remember she doesn't know any better.

Snacks. My wife has to have snacks. Headphones and a full battery on phone.
Try not to get mad if she's talking too loud.

If she starts getting bored just switch your focus from the 4 legged deer to the two legged dear

Took my wife hunting once. 9 months later we added another hunter to the family. She got bored pretty quick and our attention landed.....else where to say the least.

Instead of jumping in the blind, corn the road and jump in the truck to hunt the road....

Would make hunting with her more enjoyable.. Listen to tunes and control the climate

Good afternoon. A little hot. So we were fighting wasps the entire time. But we saw 8 does and had them anywhere from 20-100 yards. She had fun, read her book a lot and actually watched a lot for deer. We did see 4 red headed wood peckers on one tree. And they hung around for about 30 minutes.

This is where we were hunting out of a 5x8 box blind.
