    I voted. Mom fished (hasn’t in years, she’s 73 now). She never was a fan of hunting but liked her boys spending time together so she tolerated it.

    Mom didnt do any of it. Was too busy working, raising kids as a single mom.

    But she loves hearing our tales about em..especially my oldest boys stories.

    Mom loved to bass fish. Top water bone colored Pop R on a spin cast was her go to. If that didn't work a cabin creek chartreuse colored jig was her second option. It wasn't until the last 3-4 years she has started hunting. She got drawn for a cow elk hunt about 4 years ago and it hooked her. I have been fortunate enough to put her on at least a small buck for the past 3 years and she has loved every minute of it. As a bonus it has reignited a fire in my aging father to have a desire to hunt and fish again.

    My Mother loved to fish. Dad not so much, so she took me fishing many times.

    Oh Lord No!!!!!! And she was absolutely horrified that her little girl would rather traipse thru the woods following her brother & daddy than play dress up & put on makeup!!!!! I think the only time she ever shot a gun was when she was ticked off at a neighbor's guineas who were scratching up her flowers & grabbed the shotgun Dad kept by the back door and ended up shooting the power line off the house instead of the guineas...

    Mom has always fished, It was about 20 years ago she started hunting with me and solo. She is from the mountains of Virginia and grew up with it and always encouraged me on my hunting adventures. Shes not a diehard go every day but she does enjoy it and I sure enjoy going with her and seeing her success.

    Mom never hunted and fished very little. She always encouraged me to tho. she loves to cook and eat it. We usually end up with a couple muskies when running jugs (for cats) and the woman loves that fish better than anything! To the point of you'll get a fork in the back of your hand if you go after the last piece on the table lol. I swear I can't get her to quit overcooking backstrap and using that Worcestershire sauce. Drives me nuts:rolleyes::)

    My Mom liked to fish a couple of times a year. She didn't hunt but I can remember her filling up a five gallon bucket with catbirds and sapsuckers out of the cherry tree one day when I was just a little feller.

    I picked it up on my own, neither of my parents hunted, my dad fished some but really had no clue what he was doing. Even though he grew up in the country he just never did either much.

    My Mom fished and hunted every chance she got. Me and her would fish when I was to young for school. As I got older we would hunt and fish after school till my Dad got home from work. Then we would all join in.
