    First tell her you want a girl friend, tell her you got some realistate that's not being used enough and it's not going to hurt a thing that she can still call it hers but anyone who asks can ride for free if they ask nice!

    Absolutely no! Had friends with brand new trucks, boats etc want to come hunt the place I live and hunt on but aren’t willing to do without on things themselves to buy a place. I don’t ask to borrow your $75000 truck don’t get pissed if I don’t let you hunt!

    Never underestimate what a wife WON'T understand.
    Learn that and spare yourself some trouble

    Lol, thats true. I think she is mainly butthurt that she made herself look bad when she got someones hopes up about hunting.

    But, anyone who knows anything about deer hunting and management shouldnt take offense to the reasons behind the denial.

    People who do not hunt or own land simply do not understand the implications of allowing others access. Experienced hunters know not to ask for permission to hunt. In my experience, simply getting to know people (farmers and land owners) and setting an example of respect for property and wildlife means much more than just popping out of your truck and saying, "Can I hunt". A fellow I met had several hundred acres and I rarely saw people hunting there. Anytime I saw his truck I would make a point to stop, and carry on a short, friendly conversation- never talking about hunting, but he knew I hunted. One early spring i saw him repairing a fence. I stopped and helped him for about 30 minutes, and as we finished, he said," Don't you turkey hunt? Well, I laughed and said yes. He said, "If you go down that holler in the morning, you'll kill one!
    Well, I did- and was the only hunter on that farm for many years. I never took another person, or never ask to.
    Respect.
    Sit down with your wife and simply tell her that you love the land, and you have to protect it as best as you can. Without knowing if her friends will respect the land and wildlife, you cannot take a chance. A woman knows what respect is and will respect you for your concerns. Good Luck...
