UH....put electronic dog collars on the kids....so your cousin can find them if they turn out to be worthwhile..... and let them do the hiking to the distant stands. It will build character and respect for the old guys having rank. Give them something to look forward to. Just sleep with one eye open.I've always hunted whitetail within a quarter mile of the cabin. Close enough it's easy to come back in when things seem dead. My cousin got married and has step kids now, so now there's competition for all the close spots. I've got a few spots a mile plus into the woods scouted out, but now I need to figure out what to take with me since it'll be more worth it to stay out all day.
Generally I'm figuring snacks, hydration, first aid, rain gear, extra warm layer, field dressing kit. Am I missing anything obvious? Eastern Oklahoma by the way.
