this is great haha! I love reading these stories.
that is what I want to do I don't want to push him when the time comes I just want him to enjoy it.I started taking my son to the woods when he was 3. I would pack him in and we would just sit in the woods for a while squirrel "hunting".
I decided to kill a deer while he was with me at 5, he loved it, even poked around in the guts asking what each part was.
I turned him loose at the age of 6. He killed 7 deer that year.
I had one hard fast rule, no matter what.
When he said he was ready to go, we left.
I put no demands or rules on him whatsoever. It was all about being together and having fun.
I will admit it kinda stung a couple times when on opening morning of gun season, 30 minutes after sunrise on a cold frosty morning he said, I'm cold. I'm ready to leave.
But we left.
Wouldn't take anything for the times we had together.
As they say, time is a thief.
