    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.

    IT's far better to hunt with your kids than for your kids. The hours spent afield with your kids will be some of your best memories as you grow older; ENJOY !!

    I remember the first time I took my oldest son. A thermos of coffee for me, one of coco for him. He was about 5 or 6...and he got a huge hen with his BB gun . He was as proud as can be....now their both teenagers and still love to hunt. Although, they're not cute anymore.
    Anyway, like geoff said....what part of AK do you live?

    Default ducks and kids

    I took my (just turned) 3 year old last year and she had a lot of fun. She still talks about it often and can't wait to go this year.

    I got her some shooting ear muffs, like you wear at the range and we just we down on the Palmer Hayflats for some pass shooting.

    An added benefit, her eyesite is a heck of a lot better than mine. She always spots ducks first.

    Ya that is a good spot. There is only one problem with the spot it is really overhunted. I know whenever i tried to go hunt that little pond several times there was allways somebody else in there hunting. Honostly the fowling up there is so great that pretty much anywhere else you can find a good source of standing water you are going to do good with decoys. Also not to far from that pond if you go go right you can set up on the river and there is a lot of birds that fly into there. Beaware though that the tide does come in. And be careful wadding out there.
