I hope every person who had an opportunity to take a kid hunting took advantage of it. I know i did. After looking thru game cam pics, My 10 yr old finally decided it was his year to shoot a deer and put some meat in freezer. He was soooooo excited that, yep he fell asleep. lol But we were out in the woods together and thats all that really mattered.

Getting the kids in the woods is what it's all about up
For them to kill an animal is the cherry on top banana

Last night, right at last light, I put my daughter on the second biggest buck I’ve ever seen in 30 years of hunting my property. It was dark, she was having a hard time finding him in the scope, and there were 2 other bucks near him. She finally found him in the scope and started shaking so bad she couldn’t pull the trigger.

Was too dark to get a great look, but I didn’t have to take much of a look to tell her to take him. No clue how big he really was or how many points he had. I only looked at the body and the 14-16 inch G2’s and told her to take him. Was a buck I’ve never seen on camera. Pure surprise buck.

She never pulled the trigger but I bet we both remember that hunt the rest of our lives.

I'd wager you are correct. Just being together and the excitement involved was well worth the trip and no doubt will be remembered. up

I am hoping my Daughter (now 35 yrs old) will be able to make it home this season . We have many good memories of time spent together hunting. Not every trip out was successful, but every trip cherished. :

Good stuff. I have two girls, no interest in hunting.

I made a mistake, I did not make it fun. I drug them out early, cold, made them be quiet. I should have made it more fun at first. No hurry, not real early. Let them have more fun or even sleep.

That’s my advice, make it fun, at least until they get older.

OP, great job Dad. Get them out, put no pressure on them and don't be over zealous. Make it fun for them and cherish the moments. They grow up too fast. I still get to hunt with my young adult son some each season and looking forward to getting a hunt in with my 80 yr old Dad this season
