Taking a kid hunting

On Saturday I took my 4 YO granddaughter ‘hunting’ - she’s been a companion on the couch watching vids and can now roar like a red or Sika pretty well, good enough for family to have a laugh anyway but she’s wanted to go h7nting with Gramps for a while. Her day care has a ‘gun licence’ for all the kids that want one - good rules etc even penalties if you don’t comply - it’s funny but gives kids some real life experience even if it’s just a piece of wood, no pointing at people etc but I digress.
Anyway it wasn’t the best of evenings a bit windy and a few stiff showers of rain but we went anyway.
Got to spot x and walked about 200 meters around a hill to an area where I normally see deer - no dice
Miss had by this time tripped over and had a sore hand which necessitated the application of chocolate to calm her down and back to the truck.
Off to 2nd spot and low and behold 5 deer out feeding on a face about 250m from us completely unperturbed- Miss sees deer but is now caught up in chocolate and it’s still raining so watched them from the truck for 15 minutes which considering her concentration levels was pretty good - by this stage she’d had enough so it was time to go home.
Back down the track and out of the corner of my eye at 20 m is a doe and yearling. We were able to stop quietly, wind her window down and watch them for about 30 seconds. Woohoo.
Home and now it’s time to put a child hyper on chocolate to bed🤣
My wife whilst impressed we’d seen deer - little miss says ‘deer butts’ isn’t impressed she now has to shower a hyper 4YO.
I still think it was successful😂👍😁😈
