First of all, I have no children. I'm not horrible with them but I do not really have much experience with them. My nephew asked me to take him hunting. Things to consider: Child is hyper, good kid, but we get in trouble for wrestling/horseplay at every gathering, quite frankly I enjoy that more that hanging out with some of the "adults". He shoots archery, but I think its just basic level kids archery. I do not know his firearm level. They live an hour from me, so I can not just go out back and let him shoot etc. I do not rifle hunt at all. I have a guy at work letting me use a big ground blind. So now I'm torn between these options: -Take the kid, bring my bow and he gets to watch and hang out. I feel most comfortable with this option. He gets to get out and get a sense of hunting. If he likes it, I'll have to take him out more next season. Really after thinking the other options (take rifle), I do not even want to say them because they seem like a bad idea. So really what I need is tips to keep him quiet and occupied in the blind. I'm going to keep it to about a 4-5 hour hunt, about 0530-1000. If he was my kid I think I would know better how to handle this, but need some actual advice from folks that have done this before. Thanks guys.
