DHs family is big into deer hunting and as long as we have been together, I have always joined them during shotgun season. It's tradition for us all to gets together opening day (FIL, BIL, DH and I) and hunt on DHs great uncles property. A few years ago, BIL began bringing his young girlfriend with us, and last year she was very bitchy and ungrateful. It made the experience less enjoyable because we had to deal with her pouting that she didn't shoot anything.
We just found out that this year, we will also have her father joining us. That makes six people hunting a roughly ten acre area. Not only is that ridiculously unsafe, but I feel like its a bit uncool to randomly bring in "outsiders" to a family tradition. We are also worried because this guy hasn't gone hunting in about 15+ years, which can also be unsafe. I feel like BIL and his teenage gf are taking advantage of this tradition, and I am not okay with it. I asked DH if we could say something to BIL or FIL and he said its too late. The guy has already been invited, and the season is a week away. I contemplated skipping it this year since I'm not only annoyed at BIL for it, but also out of concern for safety.
Would you say something? Should I skip out on the tradition because of this?
