Bugdude, Take her!! One thing I did with my boys when they were young like that was I took them in a wheel barrel. Sounds odd I know but I would put decoys and gear in the wheel barrel and sit kids on top of gear. They had a ball riding it out to the blind (it kept the morning dew off their clothes and we were able to keep up with the rest of the family walking out). Once to the blind we would ditch the wheel barrel and cover it with reeds and such. For us we had a gravel road with a few water crossings before hitting the blind so a wheel barrel worked well. Might consider replacing the wheel barrel with a sled, deer cart, or any other viable mode of transportation for your environment. It will help them dry, rested, and save your back. The other thing I would suggest is to pack a bb gun or a sling shot for her. Start teaching her how to spot game and proper gun safety. It will help her to feel as though she actually hunting right along the side of you. The Biggest thing I would suggest though is warmth and food. Kids seem to find things to do and can even sleep out of boredom if they are warm and fed. The only down side I ever faced was having to call a few hunts short during prime time due to extreme cold (for little kids). But it was well worth it in the long run. I now have three grown boys that absolutely love going every weekend with me into the duck blind. I know that if I had forced them to stay out there and freeze while dad hunted that they would've given up on duck hunting. What is the worse that can happen when she goes? She will say dad, I'm either cold or bored, or may become impatient. You then pack things up and take your little girl out to breakfast. Either way the two of you get to spend some quality time together. Nothing wrong with missing out on a few ducks as you chow down on a stack of pancakes and talk about the morning hunt. To her it will have been the best hunt of her life. That is until the next week.
