My son is 18.5 months so I have almost two seasons under my belt with him around. I still get to hunt but, it is a bit less. Ex. Where I would leave on a Friday night, hunt all day Sat. get home Sat night. I now mainly hunt closer to home and hunt only half days or even less on a Sat morning.

I'm more than willing to live with this until he is old enough to go with me or is easier on the wife. Instead of being disappointed that I can not hunt where I really want to and enjoy, I'm finding a new challenge by hunting new areas and get a lot of other public hunting pressure. I did not have a great Archery season for seeing deer but, shot a nice buck in shotgun because of hunting closer to home.

Balance is key and hunting is not always worth a broken family (This would be my choice if I did not give in a bit).

Enjoy your little one. My guy says good night to my bow and fishing poles each night before bed. He also knows what a deer looks like from pictures and in store wall mounts. What a blessing!

I hunt whatever I can whenever I can I have 2 little girls. Balancing the family and the passion for hunting is hard to do but it seems that it always works itself out. My advise for you is plan your hunting out ahead of time get everything lined up and your family taken care of they understand that you like to hunt. But do understand even the best thought out plans sometimes change when you have family. It will be worth all the work of planning ahead believe me. Congrats on the little girl. Kids are great one of the best things that ever happened to me was having my little girls in my life.
