My son Kaleb age 3 joined me on a fall (2007) turkey hunt. This was the first time I took him turkey hunting. I've drilled in his head that you must be absolutley still and totally quiet. He sat between my legs for almost 2 hours and didn't move an inch. Finally the local flock of birds moved in and we had about 30 birds within 20 yards of us. I whispered to Kaleb I was going to shoot and he quietly said OK. The bird dropped at the shot and the rest of the birds didn't know what to do. We sat there another 15 minutes and watched several of the the other turkeys come over and check out their dead buddy. My 3 year old son had so much patience it makes me wonder if he might have fallen asleep
I really enjoy taking my kids hunting with me on occasion and everyone should take a child hunting and fishing so they too can enjoy the wonderous outdoors.
