Nothing like doing stuff like that with your kiddos. My girls use to love going fishing with dad when they were little. I am an old man now and with that comes taking the grandkids. I don't know who gets more excited about seeing them catch something me or them. I think its a close toss up.
I started taking my kids fishing not long after they were walking. Keeping them from getting bored is the yough part. We have a little creek high up in the mountain that is just loaded with little brookies that refuse to stay off a hook. No tropy fish by any means but a super good time.
More than 15 years later we still go up at least once a year just to enjoy the memories. And my grandson is walking now so I get to start all over again.
Hunting is not usually a pursuit where instant gratification abounds. It takes a lot of time, practice, resources and patience to be a successful hunter. So when someone decides that an area they hunted only once without taking an animal is worthless and devoid of game, I don't quite understand it. These people usually jump from game management unit to game management unit; trying a new one every year.
Now don't get me wrong, there are people that just enjoy scouting and hunting...
