    I was wondering with how many of you archery is strictly a “man’s thing” and
    how many of you can pursue this passion together with your partners, and to what extent.

    In my case my wife has given archery a serious try, but it just ain’t her thing.
    She is however, very supportive and likes to join me on hunting trips or 3Ds.
    I love having her along.

    Mine just started this year and she really likes it so far. I just hope I don’t burn her out with it.

    I voted “she hasn’t tried it, but is supportive”…. but let me explain it this way: She’s really supportive until I have to buy something….

    :whistle :whistle :whistle

    Then… not so much.

    I’ve tried to peek her interest, but I can’t even get her to go to a shoot/or shop let alone pull one back. :cry:

    My wife doesn’t hunt, but she shoots league and tournaments
    and usually wins.

    She believes that she gets to spend the same on “her” stuff as I spent on hunting………………it was tough when I spent $100,000 on hunting land :^O
