Have fun with it and enjoy these times cuz they dont last long!! GL
Do exactly what he is saying^^^^^^^^^^^^Great advice!

ground blind for sure. also if you are a long hunter take something to keep him busy when he gets bored. I will be taking my son this year for the first time. he is six

we went scouting and took the pop-up ground blind and saw some deer too. but he did get bored after about twenty mins of no activity. I will be taking his nintendo ds for when he gets bored.
