Last fall I purchased a new rifle and took the wife out shooting. We'd shot together previously at a family members range but we were just shooting to shoot and there were no targets, just slinging lead into the berm. This time out though, we were shooting at targets. My wife ended up shooting great. She was sub 2 inch groups at 100 yards off a cheap plastic table and a stock mounted amazon special bi-pod. On the way home I asked her if she'd be interested in deer hunting to which she said yes. She didn't grow up around hunting but she does enjoy eating the venison I brought home. Fast forward a couple months and she harvests her first deer and wants to go again this year. So that brings us to today, Michigan has an early doe season in a couple weeks and in my area we have to use an shotgun or a unmentionable. My wife has never shot my unmentionable so I took her out today to get her some range time with it. I also brought along my .32 Kibler SMR which she had also never shot. She shot great with it. We were shooting some small knockdown steel squirrel targets at 25 yards and she only missed on her first shot due to flinching at the pan igniting. She even gave me the green light to buy a fowler if Mr. Kibler starts offering them. All in all a great day and hopefully she'll get us a fat doe in a few weeks and maybe a buck during gun season.
