It depends....If I was boy scouting as in merit badges and all that nonsense, it could but the scouts would probably drive me nuts. If I tried to use the idea of scouting for big game as an excuse to go fishing, my wife would call BS and I wouldn't be going.Coludn't scouting be used as an excuse to go fishing? ;-)
Hmmm. Since I have some idea about your angling skill, it sounds to me like you need to back off on the C&R a bit and bring home a few trout for the grill. Bring her a few tasty Boulder brookies and more frequent kitchen passes may come your way.If I tried to use the idea of scouting for big game as an excuse to go fishing, my wife would call BS and I wouldn't be going.
About the only reason she still lets me go fishing or hunting is for the off-chance that I might bring home something to eat....and she knows me well enough that the chances of that happening are more and more rare!
