You'll be rewarded in more ways than filling a bag limit or pulling the trigger. Took my oldest son whose 7 along on a turkey hunt last Thursday and Friday. Pulled him out of school to do it to avoid a conflict with Mother's Day weekend ;-) Didn't kill a turkey or see one. Found plenty of mushrooms though. But Grandpa and I must have made an impression because he had to write a report in school on Monday and he chose to write about our trip. How cool is this? Map and all!!! I get more joy out of sharing the outdoors with kids than I do just hunting. Take a kid hunting!
