For the past week or two, I've had duck fever really bad. I've been counting the days until the opener (I'm hoping 111 days!). I think my four year old boy was reading my mind. On friday, he asks me if we can put on his camo and throw some dekes in the canal to "call ducks", so we did and ended up calling in 2 greenhead singles midday. We did it again today and called in a group of 2 greenheads and a hen. What a way to spend two rainy afternoons, It cant get any better than this...........for another 111 days that is!

My ten year old daughter wants to go but a early morning boat ride to the blind is kind of dangerous. Plus I don't think she operates properly before 1000 a.m. I would take her if I could find a walk up blind!!!
I took my boy on his first hunt this past season, he was only four. It was early in the season & not too cold. I think it was a 9:00 am start, anyway, no birds shot, but he was still in his element, and this year he wants to "put on his camo when its snowy and cold." I guess he comes by it honestly. :smile:
I took my three boys last year (8yrs, 6yrs, and 4yrs old). My oldest had just passed his hunter safety and downed his first duck (I don't know who was prouder the shooter or dad). My youngest is now officially addicted. He askes everyday when we get to go hunting again. Its challenging to have so many young people out at the same time, but yet very rewarding to hear of their excitement and stories during and after the hunt.
my daughter is too young to take just yet...she will be sitting in on a few deer hunts with me this fall though. i may take her on a dove shoot or two also. a lot of it depends on the weather. i am not sure i would feel comfortable taking another person's kid. a lot could go wrong anytime there are guns involved. i would have to really know and trust the parents and the kid before ever considering this...
