My son's 1st day in moose hunt

We had a great day outdoors today with my 12 year old son, Alex, hunting moose. It was his first time ever and he enjoyed especially to keep track of the dog's whereabouts with the dog tracker.
Fresh air and a day in a chilly, almost cold wind and an exiting day made him fall asleep in the last fifteen minutes of our one hour drive to home from our hunting area.
He even wants to go again. This was a real quality time with father and son together.

    I have a bunch of kid hunting pictures just like the second one from the top ;)

    He was very interested where the dog was doing it's work and checking out the GPS-collar's data about the speed, barking, heading etc.  :)

    Hunting was always a lot more fun when it was with one of my boys.

    That is better than staring at your device and playing "Ninja Fruit", they are quieter when they are doing it though, turning it off is like giving them an empty plastic water bottle and a full bag of Doritos.

    Outstanding! My favorite hunts have always been with family.
