Hi Team - looking for a bit of advice here please.
My Mrs tolerates my stalking at best. The idea of heading out to the middle of nowhere at sparrows fart to shoot a deer is completely anathema to her. However .... She is now curious as to what I like about it and has asked if she can come along one day.
The challenge is that she likes the finer things in life and, whilst pretty athletic, she isn't a fan of the cold. So I don't think that either a summer Muntie from a high seat or a winter fallow in the woods is going to cut it in terms of helping her understand how great our sport can be.
My conclusion is that it's worth investing in a long weekend break together in the highlands. Stay in a great hotel - not too tweedy and with all mod cons, spa, etc and get her out on the hill for an August stag on a great estate with a brilliant and engaging ghillie with the aim being that she shoots a trophy that will show-up anything I have managed to put on the wall to date (she's also quite competitive!)
Can anyone recommend such a place? Does anyone have any experiences of introducing their other halves to the sport in this way? Any pitfalls I should look out for?
