    Took my 4-year old son on his first hunting trip today. Tried to get my 6-year old daughter to go too but she didn't want to. He actually did really well and we were able to stay out about 2 hours. Snacks and games on my phone helped. :biggrin: Even saw a doe, but we were in a ground blind with a lot of tall grass/brush so I couldn't get him in a spot to see her. But he seemed to have a good time anyway. He did ask as we were getting in the truck, "Daddy, if you didn't shooted that deer, how are we gonna have deer meat for lunch?"
    Here he is:

    My youngest son ( he's five) likes to sleep in the blind. Then when we leave at the end of the hunt all he complain's about is he didn't see any deer. :head:

    That's cool. I cant wait til my son's old enough to go along.

    I got one of those Kelty kid carrier backpacks for Christmas, so I'll at least be able to take him hiking and scouting before long.
