Wives Of The WildSide

Pipestone Flyer

Having an opinion on your husband’s obsession and voicing it is one thing, having a crew filming you doing it, is quite another.

Appearing on The WildSide as a foil to their husband’s antics, Annali Stevenson and Melanie Bennett provide viewers with their take on Team WildSide’s adventures. As any wife of a hunter knows, hunting doesn’t end with a season. If they aren’t hunting, their talking about and planning the next trip.

When asked if they had any conditions when they were approached to appear on the show, the pair are quick to bring up their request for a nice comfy chair. For the first episode, they had to sit on a stool perched on a box. “Not really the most relaxing place to sit,” notes Annali. “An actual chair would be much better.” Rounding out their list of demands is a cat for Melanie, and Annali would like her car cleaned.

The wives could be considered the most important members of Team WildSide, picking up the slack at home while the rest of the Team are away on their adventures.

Asked about the domestic skills of the husbands, the pair point out the irony of hunters being brought to their knees by a diaper. “Tanner does do laundry though,” Melanie says “his hunting gear once a year, because he’s afraid I’ll use detergent.”

In the interests of fairness, the pair think that the wives going away on a trip while the guys stay at home with the kids could be an entertaining twist. “But we’d go somewhere nice and relax, not like the places the guys go,” says Annali. Melanie agrees adding, “It would be good for the guys to trade places and take care of home and the kids.”

Having the wives input on the show will be entertaining for the women going through the same thing. Though the two like to give their husbands a hard time, make no mistake, these wives are fully supportive of Team WildSide. Any slagging they subject the guys too is light hearted and the wives at home are sure to understand.

Just to be on the safe side though, I would get the chair for the wives, it’s easier to be nice when you’re not afraid of falling off a stool.
