Well be taking my daughter this weekend for the first time at 4, I think she’s more excited then I am. She keeps asking we going to deer lease tomorrow? No! She replies, two more days? How many days? She’s a real smart kid and I personally think she’ll do great. She’s not good with noise but we have ear muffs for her. She’ll be sitting with her pawpaw.

5 or 6 years. 2 hours was eternity for them back then. If you forget a snack, good luck. Bumped it up to 3 hours now 6 years later. Enough for me too. grin I try to alternate weekends with my boy and girl now. Will bring both at same time later in season when it is much cooler and can sit in a warmer blind with sound dampening insulated walls!

Both of mine started around 3. My daughter was always better at it than my son but both did fine. They are 9 and 5 now and I think the 5 year old was better at it when he was 3...

She will have a blast man!!!

Keep them warm and have some snacks ready for them. Mine would fall a sleep after a while. By the time he was 7 he would watch and I could do the sleeping.

My wife hunts, so they have all gone really early. Our oldest was in the stand at 4 months. Middle at 6 months.

My oldest boy still has a hard time sitting still in the blind and he's almost 11.

My other two (3 & 2) are no different so they'll probably be 5-6 years of age before they'll go to the blind.

My oldest started last year at 4. Now she will make just about every trip with me I think.

Oldest daughter was 3 when I first took her. Take coloring books and toys that can keep them occupied when times are slow. Having their own binos is fun so they can look around too. Good luck and just make it fun for them.

each kid is going to be different. My boys can not sit still or stop talking . They are ADD , and we only bow hunt . The hang out in the cabin for now but do all the firewood gathering, camera checking , corn filling and walk the recovery with me .
