So last weekend I took my son (9) out for his first ever, rabbit hunt. We tried SanJacinto and saw a few; or should I said I saw a few.  My son had a hard time seing them in time and never took a shot.  He was a bit down about it so last sunday I took him to IV.  We saw lot of rabbits and he took a few shots but missed them.  However, the trip was a success none the less.  He had fun and wanted to go back out there as soon as possible.  On Monday I told my co-worker about our experiance and he asked to join us with his boy (10) for his first hunt.
 
More  than willing to introduce a new kid to hunting and to satify my son's request; we went out this morning to IV.  About 0630, after seen a few but not able to shoot, My son finnally sees a rabbit he raise his shotgun for a shot :smiley_prayin_ani: .  I see him pull the trigger and become the proudest dad ever.  :4gi59uu_th:  he killed the Rabbit 25 yards away with one shot and we both yell in exciment. 
 
My Co-worker got his first rabbit and I got one for a total of three for the day.  Even though my Co-worker's son did not get one, he took a shot at one and is eager to try again.  All in all it was a great day.
 
PS.  Dirty Dave you may not recognise the shot gun cause I made a few modifications but I just wanted to say thank you and my son loves it.

No. I ended up calling Mossberg and ordered a youth stock and forearm.  The stock has LOP of 12 and expands to 13.  I can then put the wood one back on to make it back into a full size 14.  Works great!

Thats awesome you took them hunting. If every sportsman would take a non hunter with them the world would be a better place.
