I have two boys ages 6 and almost 5 (day after christmas). My 6yo has gone on a few hunts with me and they are usually short unless he brings a video game. He's not really into hunting yet, I'm not sure if he ever will be. My younger son, the one that wants the bow, has only gone to the stand a handfull of times but he's the one telling me to hush and look for deer. It's hard to believe that they are such polar opposites.
