How Hunting Has Made Us A Better Couple

My husband and I have been hunting and fishing together since we have been able to afford it. We didn’t start off financially fit, it took a lot of hard work and dedication to get to where we are today. We have guns of all kinds, the right licenses to buy and shoot them wherever we choose to go as well as a great 4x4 truck and trailer to get us out in the woods whenever we want to get up and go. All these things took lots of sacrifice over the years to save and afford the stuff we wanted out of life, teamwork makes the dream work. 

Getting outdoors helps your mind heal!

We love to be outdoors together. The fact that we go out of cell service is so freeing and relieving that it gives us time to connect with each other on a screen free level. Our minds are on the task at hand like hiking, tracking, shooting and navigating our journey. Giving your mind that break can help recharge your inner battery and talk about topics that gets so muddled by social media and the news. 

Hunting is great teamwork!

When you walk through the woods together hunting an animal you need to anticipate each other’s actions, learn each other’s cues, and be quiet and calm together in a very exciting situation. When you are sharing guns and passing each other tools you need to work together and cooperate in ways you wouldn’t normally at home. Then making the decision to take a life and process the animal is a whole different experience you learn together. 

Hunting keeps the excitement alive!

You never know what you are going to find in the forest of BC we have come across moose, wolves, coyotes, bobcats, deer, bear, and lots of small game. We have come face to face with big bears and moose and it can be quite a rush when you start lining up your shot with your high powered rifle. 

Hunting keeps you both healthy!

We walk for hours and hours some days deep in the forest and come up empty handed. We walk over fallen trees, along muddy creek sides, up hills, down in gullies and so many other places. We eat the healthiest food when we get into wild game, no antibiotics or steroids, just Mother Nature!
