Not really related but just curious if there are any fellow 'hunting widows' out there.
My DH is an avid hunter. Deer, grouse, pheasants....you name it, he hunts it. As much as I enjoy the fruits of his labor, I find this time of year a bit trying. For the past couple of weeks, he has been out hunting every day after work until dark, and then the vast majority of the day on weekends. And actually weekends end up being worse. The past couple of weekends have looked a bit like this: Saturday- hunt in the morning, come in and watch college football, hunt until dark. Sunday- hunt in the morning, come in and watch NFL, hunt until dark, watch late game in NFL.
Every day I hope he gets his buck, just so that it is over and I can have my husband back. It gets very tiring spending so much time at the house by myself. The added frustration comes from having to be in charge of dinner every single day. Normally we split it pretty fifty/fifty but during hunting season, I have to get dinner made unless I want to wait until like 8pm.
I have been binge watching old episodes of ER to pass the time when he is out. Come rifle season, I will really be home by myself as he goes up north and stays the whole week at his hunting shack up there, except on Thanksgiving which we do up north at his parents' house.
What do you other 'hunting widows' to help you get through hunting season?
