I had on Swamp People today.My wife was actually watching it and commented that she liked Troy Landry.I agreed with her and continued to watch the show.
My wife then said "Thank God we don't live down there,because you would just have to go after those gators too." After all these years of putting up with my hunting ,trapping and supply business---She knows me--oh so well.
Guys be thankful for the women that put up with us and our endeavors.

My wife and I have been together since 8th grade and she still doesn’t understand my passion for trapping. That’s been 33 years now. I say she’s a slow learner. Lol

Shoot are ya kiddin? Pawnee has it made. Now that the nest is emptyin out his wife went and got a job in town so he can buy more traps.

He is basically every husbands hero the way I see it.

Bogmaster, next time tell her the winters are mild down there (press yer luck LOL

One of my wifes favorite quotes on doing conventions with me--"I knew I was getting used to these conventions,when I could eat a sandwich and sell fox urine at the same time".

Good for you, Tom! Been with the same great woman for a total of 44 years, 38 of them married. Been holed up here together for almost a year now and loving every minute of it. We deeply respect each other and laugh hard together every day. Looking forward to the next 44!

Another good thing about my wife--she has never complained about any money I spent on hunting or trapping items,she figured that hunting and trapping were better alternatives,than if I spent money on alcohol or spent my time in bars.
She did ask if I would be able to make any money,when I headed to Mississippi to trap beaver. Besides getting paid to trap the beaver--every otter brought well over $100;00,so that question was answered honestly.LOL.

I was talking to a guy at a sports show in the Yeti coolers booth, just enjoying his unusual accent when people started coming up and asking him for his autograph. They were carrying photos of him, and he was signing these autographs. I peeked over his shoulder and the pictures said Troy Landry. I had to go home and google it because I'd never heard of him. Just seemed like a guy you'd like to hunt with.

She attended more Wisconsin conventions than those in MN. Her and my daughter used to compete to see who sold the most gloves.
