Ground hunting archery season.

I plan to take one of my grandson's out this year. We will be sitting on the ground, no blind, and no tree stand for him. Other than sitting still, good cover, watch the wind, and no cell phones, any one have any tips?

Re: Ground hunting archery season.

Depending on the age of your grandson, bring something to keep their mind occupied for long periods of time like a hand held game or something,..... make sure the cover in front of you blocks any movement by them and also bring some kind of snack to keep them happy and awake.. But most of all... ENJOY your time together in the woods.... they grow up way too fast and make each minute of time together one that you will remember .... ENJOY bud....

Re: Ground hunting archery season.

My advise is to leave any games at home.Occupy his time by quiety teaching him about the things around you.Good luck.Taking an enthusiastic kid out is one of the best experiences in the world.

Re: Ground hunting archery season.

keep him comfortable (lawn chair may work for both of you)! The sent free stuff is something you can do but if he is not comfortable he will move around, I like the hand held game idea keep his mind occupied (I still take a book along with me some times and have done so for 40 yrs) along with tips from Pap to make it interesting. Good luck and great memories for you!

live laugh love and hunt hard!

Forest county got to love it!

Re: Ground hunting archery season.

If possible, do 3 two hour hunts instead of 1 six hour hunt. That will do a lot to keep him still.
