Many of you might know me as the wife of the skunk shooting buffalo hunter. Now, barring any obsticles, I am actually going to accompany my husband at the end of the month for 3 days (still working on getting my children cared for). I've never, ever, even thought that I would be as excited as I am to go. However, I would like to be a help. I'm sure I will have to do the girl thing, like cook and tend camp. Mostly I would like advice on how to be the most useful when we are out looking for the buffalo. I do need some female advice -oOo- , but males, please let me know what you think as well. *-HELP!-*

The fact that you are willing to help tend camp is a huge help. At the end of a long day of hunting there is nothing worse than camp chores.

An extra pair of eyes behind a good pair of optics never hurts either!

You will also want to polish up your story telling skills to include as many details as possible. This is because while your husband is out hiking at the top of Mt. Ellen 4 miles from the nearest vehicular access, a herd of 17 trophy buffalo will wander right through camp while you are enjoying a solar-heated shower. Your husband will appreciate it when you are able to tell him exactly how large each of the buffalo in question were, and also that the biggest one was 27 yards from you standing broadside. All of this information will be greatly appreciated at the time he drags himself back into camp well after dark.

My wife would smack me if I made that statement.

The foot massages or the animals coming through camp while the hunters are gone?

I was down there for two weeks this past fall and never did I have a foot massage. Thinking back on who was in camp with me for the muzzle loader deer, I am feeling good about that.

I just meant an extra pair of hands to help is always helpful. My wife doesnt enjoy hiking the hill like me so she doesn't mind kickin her hills up at camp all day and helpin me when I get back.

My better half starrted hunting with me about 5 years ago. The three things that have meant the most to me are 1) just being there enjoying the time with me, 2) talking to her friends about her exsperiances while hunting, 3) not complaining because things are getting tough or cold.

OK buffalo wife, we have given you plenty of time to fill us in on the end of your hunt. How did you do?
