Conversations with a Hunter

Him:  “Have you seen my camo pants?  Not the dark green ones, and not the light green ones, but the kind of medium green ones with the pattern with the sticks?”

Me:  “When did you get more than 2 pairs of camo pants?  They come in different colors?”


Me:  “What is that awful SMELL???  Did something die in here?”

Him:  “It’s raccoon, isn’t it great?  Deer can’t smell me at all!”

Me:  “It’s super, really.  How far away do you have to be before I can’t smell you either?”

(7:00 pm) Me:  “Honey?  Honey?  Hello?  Can you help me with…”

Him:  zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

(4:30 am) Him:  “Honey? Honey? Hello?  Have you seen my….”

Me:  zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


Me:  “Just remember that the building we’re putting on this hill is actually a house to live in, not just a giant deer stand, right?  Right?  Right?”

Him:  “Sure, whatever you say.  Do you think we can make these windows bigger?”

Somehow, I’m not sure I believe him.

OMG I love this post.

We might just be married to the same person.

And my husband HAS shot something from one of our windows!

Ha! Oh my, I'm dating a hunter now, and this post totally made me laugh out loud! The whole world of hunting is relatively new to me, but I've been overhearing a lot of these types of conversations lately...

And funny story about the camo. I tried to buy my boyfriend some new UnderAmour hunting apparel, only to find out that camo does, in fact, come in multiple patterns. Who knew? Ha. Anyways, I finally just picked one out and hoped for the best.

I ended up not picking the right one, by the way. But the boyfriend was very nice about it and seemed to appreciate how much effort my hunting-illiterate-self put into picking out the gifts.

Sadie - Well, I have a long-time girlfriend (you know who you are miss J.), who is just as bad, so maybe not just men (although mostly), but fanatic hunters in general. In fact, after she read this post, she wanted to know where Mr. HH got his raccoon scent so she could get some of her own!

Cowgirl - I should be a veteran at it by now, but the subtleties of camo still confuse me at times, so it sounds like you are doing just fine. Thanks for stopping by!
