    Grandpa on Dad's side of the family never hunted ducks, although his dad loved to hunt em. Mom's dad hasn't hunted ducks since steel became mandatory.

    Dad's dad loves deer huntin and used to chase bears with dogs. He got me hooked on hunting at an early age.

    485BB7CD-C303-4DC3-B043-157F69706A1D.jpeg Took my four year old out for his first duck hunt earlier this year. It was great! He looked up and saw a flock of birds off in the distance...he looked at me and pointed at the birds while yelling “ Daddy! Ducks!!incoming!!” Hopefully, he’ll catch the bug and we will have many more hunting trips together in the future.

    Started both my kids early, like 5yo early.
    My daughter enjoys her sleep and has zero liking of mud. She does tag along on deerhunts at the club, mainly to hang with dad.
    My son on the other hand, hes hunting as we speak. Kid hasn't taken a day off since 9/1 and continues day after day. He joined my deer club up in the mountains at a hefty price, and this year joined my duck club as well as purchased a season pass for the refuges.
    Currently my lower shed is strictly hunting gear. Its a big shed, and its full of everything from decoys to deerstands.
    Kids got it bad, its gonna be an uphill battle finding the right woman.

    Best of luck to him, that's pretty hard to do. I know I'm still looking.

    A younger me, knowing what I know now, would be looking for other things.

    Lots of other things.

    My oldest son is on the left. I get the feeling he is enjoying himself? I had him on my back to the blind when he was 3...the rest is history.
