OB Dads with Daughters
Posted by ThatsAFactJack on 10/5 at 12:39 pm
My daughter is turning 2 this month. I plan on breaking her into camping and outdoor stuff this fall and winter. Any suggestions from OB Dads with older daughters as to how you started your young daughter into camping/hunting?

TIA

Take her. Take her everywhere you want to go. However, early on don't get caught up in "making" her do this right or that right. Make it fun and let her play and explore. It developes the interest by her just being there with you and watchibng you. Then as she gets older she'll express an interest in learning the "right " way to do things. Mt daughter is 15. Loves to camp hunt and fish. She also is getting to that age where her social life is starting to get important as well. I'm sure that pretty soon Old dad will be back in the woods alone again but damn the last 10-12 years have been fun with her..

1. keep it fun
2. make it "cushy", moreso than with boys.
3. have patience,,, i had problems with this one.

Lots of snacks and coloring books. Kept a box in my stand with various things for her to do. They will mess up some hunts but it doesn't matter. I value those hunts more than anything. Camping is much easier, they can run and play no worries. My parents have property so we did test run in their backyard.

Under no circumstance should you ever ever ever leave your 3 year old daughter in a buddy of yours vehicle, make the buddy watch your daughter, while you go out in the pitch arse black and drag a deer your shot out of the woods...

That pisses little girls off.

I was the buddy who was supposed to watch the 3 year old. She was crying so hysterically she threw up all over her self... bad bad bad bad memory.

I have 3 daughters. The oldest likes to go, the other two are sissies. I take my 5 year old everywhere. You won't kill near as many critters, or catch as many fish, but it really doesn't matter. Buy twice as much food and 3x as many crickets as you think you need. Be prepared to go home as soon as you get to your hunting/fishing spot. Don't take them when it's too hot/cold. I let mine pick out all her own hunting clothes to make her feel special. It makes her want to go just because she can wear those clothes.

Teach her to sneak up on squirrels and such, and the next thing you know she'll be trying to sneak up on your neighbor's peacock "just to pull a couple feathers."

I dropped my daughter off in the woods with a knife. Wished her luck. Told her I would pick her up in a week.

At age 2, how about setting up a tent in the living room.

My youngest daughter and I had the best times together hunting. Build a comfortable, warm box stand. I had crayons and markers in there and she would draw pictures. She also recorded every kill on the wall with a sharpie. As she grew older she became a pretty good shot. She killed a few. Social life started to kick in a couple years ago. She is seventeen and is planning on going this year. Man I hope so

My daughter is due next week - C-section scheduled for next Thursday! I'm excited and also terrified but can't wait to have her in the world finally!

Maybe she can make her first post on my iPhone from the hospital? I read this morning that INFIDEL's son is posting already and I want to get my little girl started as early as possible.
