I'm an outdoors writer working on an article for Bow & Arrow Hunting about buck fever, and how it compels individuals to shirk their family/work responsibilities to go hunting. I'm looking for some of the best excuses ever concocted, as well as good stories that I can share with readers of the magazine. If you have any great excuses or stories, please contact me. Email me at [email protected], or call me at (517) 290-6471.
Thanks.

My wife got a ride from the next door neighbor to the hospital to have our first born:yikes:

Took me a while to get down from the tree but I made it before my bow made his appearance (thank God).

I still have scars though:SHOCKED:

Opening of Firearm shares the same day as my birth - November 15th. So I just give myself a vacation every year as a present to myself.;) And my sons birthday is the week prior- November 8th, so he gets a vacation as a present too. And you know Dad has to chaperone.:D:D

Until I can calm the nerves by listening to grouse drumming from the office, I will continue to use my sick days in the fall.:D

But honey, don't you remember what we did exactly 9 months ago last year?!

~This is said as you are holding your 10 month old~


For those of you who haven't ever done the math...9 months prior to opening day of gun season is what Holiday.......yeah a woman must have invented Valentines day to counter the 9 months pregnancy...lol

Honey, you know that I hate to hunt, but I sit out there in the rain, snow, ice and wind. Sometimes for hours at a time. And you know why I do this honey, for you and the kids. So you can have fresh meat to eat.

"Honey, I am doing this for your mother. If I don't do my part to manage the herd, think of all the extra deer runiing around. She might hit a deer with the car and I just don't like to think of the consequences...I look at it as my duty to you and your mom".
