I have daughter who is eight years old, she has been bow hunting with me now for four years. Just in the last couple of years I have let her hunt with me out of a buddy stand with a Jr. Hunter Saftey System. Last spring I took her turkey hunting with me and she loved it, playing with the calls. She has been around guns and bows from an early age. She has her own compond bow and she goes to 3-D shoots with me sometimes. I have let her shoot my .22 rifle a few times and talked with her about gun safety. I am going to enrole her in a hunter safety class next year and let her start shotgun hunting during the youth season when she is ten. I have friends who have started the kids out earlier and some say they are going to wait until they are in their teens. What are your thoughts on the right age to let kids hunt?
Happy and Safe Hunting
