While many hunters will set off to the woods to participate in the start of gun buck season, the women who have been left behind planned a celebration of their own.
The Third Annual Deer Hunters’ Widow Party was held at Marshall's Hall of Fame Cafe in Huntington on Monday. The event is hosted every year by 93.7 the DAWG to allow women to have an outlet to celebrate gun buck season in their own way. About 50 women were pampered with food, musical performances and prize giveaways.
"It's a good idea for the wives to get together. We all know what's going on. The husbands get to do what they want. This was a good experience. We get to tell their stories," Nikki Martin of Raceland, Ky., said.
The women also had a chance to strut their stuff with camouflage clothing during a fashion show.
