oh yeah... i did take my nephew last year. he is 3 also. he did good i thought. he kept telling me the deer where hiding behind a tree about 200 yds away. i felt sorry for him though. he has asthma pretty bad and it must have been bothering him that day cuz about every 5 mins he would procede to cough his head off. even if those deer had been hiding behind that tree he was talking about i doubt they would have ever got close with the kinda stiffled cough he kept having. i think he did good considering we did not see any deer that day. he sat with me about an hour and 15 to 30 mins and seemed to like it. for a couple weeks after he kept telling everybody he saw that he got to go deer hunting.
