Jeans and a dark blue or dark green shirt. Probably already have those. No need to buy from Sellusoutmart.

I went to bass pro on Friday and did not find anything that would fit them properly and they were priced higher than I was looking to pay, I did pick them up a hunting pack for cheap that they can keep their stuff in. I stopped at the wally world on quarterfield on the way home because my local walmart doesnt carry much and was able to find a pair of camo pants for my oldest that were adjustable and reasonable. I ended up picking up two pair of army style camo pants in the kids section that will fit better and give them the hunting look which is more what I am going for since its more for them to get excited about it. I likely wont take my youngest and with the oldest we will be in a ground blind for an hour or two most likely with no expectations. It is more to just get them in the woods because they are excited. If by some change we see anything, it will be a bonus. They have shown an interest and I am willing to give it a try. Worst case I spend a few hours with my excited 5 year old, he is very calm for a 5 year old and has picked up a lot about hunting by just asking me questions, He found a rub on his own last year in the woods that I missed when I had him and his brother out just walking the woods looking for deer. Best case it helps him learn and become a better hunter in the long run.

Those t-shirts they are were wearing the other day to dove hunt are t-shirts that I used to wear when I was smaller/thinner. The boots I bought for my son at the Gainesville Cabela's. As I already mentioned, I bought his Drake waterfowl gear off of e-bay because 1) the selection at Bass Pro was ZERO for kids waterfowl gear and the selection at Cabela's in Gainesville was only barely above ZERO. I could have mail ordered the stuff from Cabela's, but e-bay was a lot cheaper for new with tags.

Like your 5 year old, my 10 year old and 6 year old have shown an interest in hunting since they were about 3, maybe 4. The twelve year old, barely at all, and she never comes along hunting or shooting, but she does like fishing and crabbing. Here are some pics of my 10 year old when he was 4. My wife would drive him to the field when we were close to being finished for the morning and he would stay in the blind with me for 10 to 15 minutes, shoot the gun a little, and then help me pick up decoys. You are on the right track. Make the duration short and the time exciting at this age, and they will be out hunting with you for a long time. I was 5 the first time I went dove hunting with my dad as a "retriever".
