Reminds me of an incident that a buddy of mine had. He spent something like $40,000 on a polar bear hunt in Canada and waited something like two years before the hide cleared customs and he could get it to a taxidermist. He got it full body mounted and it was featured prominently in his man cave.

Anyway, apparently the little Mrs freaked out about something my buddy did or didn't do one night and in retribution she took a Sawzall to his prized polar bear mount. I guess there was hair and limbs and body parts all over the house when he finally got home.**O**

As I recall, divorce papers were served within the week...

Interesting.... Perhaps he needs to pay attention to what she is trying to tell him. Sounds to me like she is crying for some attention. Someone has their priorities screwed up and needs to make some adjustments. I think they both need to sit down and have a real heart to heart discussion and start placing their spouse's needs and desires before their own.

It's these type of stories I try and stay out of until I know all the facts from both sides.

I've seen others put up for sale signs in front of houses, list pick up trucks for sale on Craig's List, and that kind of thing. Saw a group of buddies that practical joked each other with that kind of thing. Pictures of the other guy's truck with "call after 10 PM".

Taking the Sawzall to the polar bear. Love to see a narrated video of that one.

My mounts would have been gone a long time ago since my wife and I got married pretty much when the rifle deer hunt is going on. :shock: Luckily for me she understands and lets me go when I have a rifle tag. The one benefit to getting married during the rifle hunt is that she bought me a muzzleloader so now I try to deer hunt in September as much as possible. :p

That's the easy way to remember your anniversary.

Oh I completely agree. But when someone does something hurtful to you (like forgetting your anniversary) starting the discussion by doing something in retaliation (like giving away your moose mount) is probably not the best way to get them to listen. Chances are, this couple is way past the counselling can fix this stage.... just a guess.

Boys, she's just collecting phone numbers for resale. It's like those guys in the "Cars for sale" section of KSL that advertise say a 2014 Ford F150 for $2900. ... "Please text only". If you got suckered and text "her" (probably just some guy over in Nigeria sitting in front of his computer writing ads all day), he just added your number to his list. Ever wonder how these people get your phone number?
