It's taken a while to get her out to hunt as she is very conflicted about being the only girl and leaving her sisters behind but finally got her out over the Thanksgiving holiday and she loved it. Was way more into it than my 10 year old son who loves to "hunt" but really just likes playing in the woods. She was yelling at me for my misses and was able to see ducks coming in just before dawn that my old eyes couldn't see at all!

The only bad news is that we limited on both hunts which isn't normal for this time of year and she was counting them out loud and yelling "one more, one more!" when we almost had our limit. Not gonna be pretty on a slow day but made some great memories!

Man, this is awesome. If and when I'm lucky enough to have a daughter, I hope she takes a liking to hunting!

Thanks! Honestly its a little bittersweet as I was having the conversations with her that I've wanted to have with my son but he's not there yet and I'm not putting any pressure on him. But at the same time having them both out there is such a great experience for all of us that its hard to really complain about anything at all.

She also made them all dab for the ducks!

Don't put an abundance of pressure on the boy but do keep asking him to go. My son always asks why I didn't take him more. All I can say is I asked and you told me you didn't like going. Then he comes back from the Marines and tells me I should have asked more confused2

Congrats smirly22!

Barny - good advice. He loves going so I'll just stick with it. I could fill an entire gallery of photos with him sleeping in blinds. The best part is he always wakes up and asks if we shot anything???
