Bring 2 extra sets of clothes... One for the trip home, and one the youngster can change into mid-hunt if needed. Also, food and some hot choclate. If you blind hunting, a place for him to sit would be good. Also, he's a KID, he will not be able to sit still for anywhere near as long as an adult. When things are not happening, let him move around, and be a part of setting decoys and moving them if you need too.

Most of all, make it fun for him. Oh, and ear muffs or plugs.

Thats my .02 worth.

I think the key will be like tlrmike mentioned,"make it fun for him". He is not going to have the patience or perseverance to "hunt" like Daddy. I remember back to when my daughter would go hunting with me. I always went knowing that it was a bonding experience, and results took a back seat. He may get sleepy, so if possible have a place for him to take a nap or rest. Tell your buddy to take pictures, this is something that will be a "forever memory".
