Welcome Hunting James, it took me some years to convince my dad to start hunting again with me. He had been a hunter for many years then a family and job seemed to leave not much time for the kids. Finally, he started hunting with me and my brother for many years after. I would do your chores (shows responsibility) keep on him about spending quality time with you, and remind him of how much fun he had hunting and how much it means to you to share it with him. Maybe have him read our posts! Good luck with your dad!
