I got my kids hooked on fishing by allowing consumption of a lot of soda and cookies on the boat. By the time they were 12 (twins) all I had to do is back the trailer in and they did the rest. They are both great shots but I have not gotten them into duck hunting, just dry land critters. It wasn't intentional I didn't back into it until a dozen years ago. Although one of my greatest Dad moments was sitting on the tailgate after a morning of fishing with my daughter who was about 10 when she said; "That sure beat sitting on the couch playing video games."
