Yes sir, I am.
The thing with my boys is that I've taken them to the woods any chance I get. They've always gone to hang stands, scout, fish, etc...
That's the key. Take them early and I think the outdoors grows in them.

You better get started withem kids. You don't need a lesson how to make them do ya?:smiley_cupid:

Impressive form for such a young kid! I help coach archery to youth and I wish they had form like his. I'm constantly telling them to drop their elbow..."be a T, man, be a friggin T"

Nah, I think I'm good in that department. I think she is ready for kids, but me not so much. I'm still selfish...

Mine have been in the woods/water since they could walk. I started taking them on gun hunts when they were 7. The girls would rather go to the mall but Hunter is all in!! Good job getting your kids out there!!

I have done the same. They love going shed hunting with me as it is not so confined for them. The only way to describe my 6 year old son is it is like trying to hold onto a bag of squirrels. They have a kids bow, but I don't push it on them and they probably only shoot it a couple times a year. Even then they lose interest quickly. It will either be there or it won't. I think they will have the outdoor bug.

My son turns one this week. I am trying to put the time in now watching hunting shows with him in the hopes that he'll never want to watch The Wiggles as he gets older.

BTW Cottis, that boy looks like a pro.

No, it's a Brave. Not sure who makes it. It was a hand me down from a friend and nothing else is printed on it.
