Default Passing it on

Hello all.
I had the wonderful opportunity to take my son in the woods on Sunday. He'd been bugging me to go scouting so I decided to take him up on it. I wasn't sure how he would do in the woods, but he seemed very interested and willing to take in all of the sights and sounds of nature. We made a kind of hiking trip out of it, taking time to stop for snacks,juice etc.
As we neared the end of our day we got to see 5 does feeding in a small field. It was absolutely beautiful! and it's all he talks about. He can't wait to go hunting with Dad!

It was a day that we both soon won't forget.

If you get a chance, take a kid affield. It's worth the trip.

That's great! I truly believe in sharing the joy and experiences of the great outdoors. My wife is expecting in a few months and I am already antisipating on taking my yougin out into the woods.

Not just for hunting but for the whole picture or things.

God bless.

Hi mass hunter.I live just outside Boston and have a place up in NH,a couple hours up,and my son is 3.I do alot of scouting before the season and this past summer and early fall is the first time my son has been old enough to scout and hunt(coyotes) with me.We've scouted 5 or 6 times together and hunted coyotes 4 times.Now I cant walk out of the house with my gear,without him running to get his boots and back pack.He has the best time looking through the binos,even if there isnt much to see at the time.I pack up the juice boxs,lunch and snacks ,and out we go.I enjoy seeing him find something,that we take for granted,because we've seen it 1000 times,but hes never seen before,its like Im seeing it for the first time too.Im glad to see so many guys taking there kids out to the sticks at such early ages,these are their formative years you know.Good luck this season.
