Deer hunting season happens in a lot of states, but nowhere is the deer widow phenomenon as pronounced as in Wisconsin. I’m talking about the fact that women are at home for a week while their boyfriends and husbands are out hunting. So what’s a girl to do? Here are ten things Wisconsin deer widows might do to pass the time.
He's having fun so why shouldn't you? Deer widow season should unofficially be known as Wisconsin Margarita weekend. What lady isn't slamming a few of these back?
2. Wine tasting
It's slightly more sophisticated than margaritas but the result is the same. Head out with a few of your girlfriends to one of Wisconsin's numerous wineries.
Don't order the salad. It's time to eat the food you've been craving, and what goes better with margaritas than some awesome Mexican?
4. Get dolled up
If your husband is the type who doesn't like to get all dressed up to go out to eat, why not go to a fancy restaurant with some of your girlfriends?
5. Chick flicks
Has it been a while since you've watched "The Notebook?" It's totally time to pop that in, eat some chocolate, and grab the tissues.
6. Be bold
What is more fun than spending the afternoon getting a great manicure? Try something different this time to show your hubby when he gets home.
7. Treat yourself
Whether it's a haircut or a massage, going to a wonderful Wisconsin salon is a way for you to be refreshed this week.
8. Shop till you drop
Why not get a head start on Christmas shopping before things get too crazy? It's the perfect time to do shopping for your spouse while he's away.
9. Male revues
Why settle for watching "Magic Mike" when you can go to a male revue? These are a true favorite among Wisconsin deer widows, and there are (female-only) shows across Wisconsin.
10. Tag Along
Sure, many women stay home because they aren't interested or the guys want to get away. But more and more women are going along these days.
