I wouldn't because it is early in the morning, there is a lot of sitting still and being quite (both difficult for my 4 year old) I think he wold be bored and be tired soon. And I would ensure that he was covered in Hunter Orange head to toe. I would be scared of anything close to ancient. I think they are rare compared to how many people hunt, but that would be my fear.

my kids go scouting all the time with my dad. he would never take them with him while he has a gun though. They are 4 and 5 at that age there behavior is still a little unpredictable and he doesn't want to take the risk of them getting accidentally shot by him or another hunter. They love to go scouting though. they are learning to appreciate they environment getting to see different types of animals and getting to spend quality time with grandpa. I won't let mine go until they are about 9 or 10 that's when he started letting me go with him and even then it was only in places were he had permission from land owners so there was a limited amount of hunters in the area.
