Thought for sure that was a bowriter thread title.

My hunting partner made that mistake. Basically missed one November deer season, then 16 years of having to go home during the peak of the rut for birthday parties.

Probably a good reminder for us old guys to take it when we can get it as well! :-)

Very true! My 2nd child was born on opening day of gun season the only year I didn't bow hunt.

The saving grace was that it was a boy, who later decided that deer hunting was more important than celebrating his birthday on the actual date.

If I could choose 1 day of my life to relive, it would be that one.

If this happens to you, suck it up, skip the hunting. There is always next year.

My son is 21 now and my wife is maybe 50% to the point of having forgiven me. I did make it to the hospital on time. I try not to think about how it'd be if I hadn't.

We planned the first one around all hunting seasons. When we decided we wanted another kid my wife wanted to start right away. I may have had a lot of “headaches”in January and February....my daughter was born December 11th. lol.

My son was born this Sept 11th. Oops. My wife is fully aware that his birthday party is going to be before leaving or after I get back from elk hunting. I have a feeling once he’s old enough for me to take elk hunting he’ll be understanding.

My wife’s pretty understanding as I usually am away from home, on my birthday, our anniversary or my youngest daughters birthday, to guide whitetail hunters. Yes I’m a poor planner. ;)

The flipside of that is when you're born in November, like me, you get a whole day to yourself with no one bitching at you :)

I have a brother in-law and mother in-law born on November, 4th and 22nd. I text them Happy Birthday from a tree, most years.

I have one on Oct. 14 and one coming in August. Honestly, Oct. 14 is pretty decent , especially after that first year. My wife said no to a hunting season baby this time, but heck I didn't hardly do much hunting the year #1 was born. I even left the elk woods early to "ensure" I was home in time.

I have to be careful what I do and gather LOTS of points year around, so I can hunt for 9 months of the year. There are three phases to use when addressing your wife.

1. This is big, "yes dear, I understand"

2. Use this one sparingly. "Anything you say"

3. And use this one alot. " I love you"

My best Paul

Never call you wife to tell her you may be late to your kid's birthday party due to tracking a deer. I still hear about it every fall even though it was 9 years ago. Now my daughter hunts with me so it was worth it.

I went dall sheep hunting when my son was nine days old. Let’s just say that it didn’t go over well.

Never understood getting married in the fall either...That is what Jan-April are for! ha!

Shiras... exactly! My cousin got married on November 4th of 2017. He text me to get my address. He said... "I know you'll probably be out hunting, but I'm gonna send you invite anyway." :)

My wifes b-day is mid Sept, which is usually opening weekend and the rut in my hunting area and to top that off my anniversary is mid March which is opening of turkey. I lucked out and married a gal who was brought up in the north woods of Wisconsin and knows all about opening days

First one was an April birthday. Second one due in May. Both boys.

So far, so good!

Good friend wanted me to be best man Nov 3 and told him couldn't do it to prior engagement, he understood but she didn't. Told him anytime of the year no problem, spent a lot of overtime working and had that period of time always lock down for 10 days in the field. It took 8 yrs before he went hunting with me after the divorce, enough said.

I left for an elk hunt in when my daughter was 11 days old in 2008. I said I would skip it but my wife insisted that I go and that she would never throw it in my face. I went and she lied! :)

In hindsight it was a stupid decision by me.

My son was born the day muzzleloader deer season opened. My wife told me to go out in the evening as I had hung around all day with our girls. Took them for a walk behind the farm and a big doe stepped into the field right in front of us. I was carrying my flintlock. Shot her and was back at the hospital before dark. Bull luck.

My daughter was born 9-18-1985. I was out on the Alaska peninsula bowhunting moose and caribou on that day. She hunts nearly as much as I do and is always hunting elk on her birthday, and my wife had everything arranged for the birth in case I wasn't back yet.

My first was born Dec 8th. Second Dec 4. Third Sept 14! Almost made it lol. I did go elk hunting in September when the third one was due and killed one opening morning and home by 5. I had an Inreach with me just in case. Wife gave me the ok to go but she still looks at me sideways when we joke about it.

I really is tough to hit that idea time to have a kid which I'd consider to be the latter half of April. For our first one we did not bad everything worked better than I thought and we didn't need months of practise and she was born March 1.

If my wife ever gets over her PTSD from our first one I'd take another whenever she's ready for it. I joke about the PTSD but only half. It may be legitimate. At this point I'd be willing to trade about anything for another kid. But only if my wife is happy with it.
