Kids and hunting?

Postby lancetkenyon » Wed Dec 26, 2012 2:46 pm

Who takes their kids hunting with them?

Here is my 10yo daughter this past Saturday on a varmint stand with me. Best times in the field are spent with family and friends. Teach the next generation to hunt and appreciate the outdoors. The memories will last a lifetime.

Grew up from an very early age out in the field with either my mom or dad. I did the same with my two kids.

Sometimes it takes, sometimes it doesn't. Two out of four of my parent's kids took up hunting and the shooting sports. One of my two kid did the same.

Regardless, ALWAYS bring the kids out, whether hunting, fishing, hiking, anything in the outdoors!
It ain't the size of the gun but the placement of the bullet.

Wait....Don't use that type of gun for legitimate hunting!!!! You're making the liberals look like a bunch of fools who don't know what they are talking about!

In all seriousness, great job, great pic, and I hope she is hooked for life.----SS

Last year my 14 year-old son decided he wanted to hunt and then changed his mind until the 2nd to last day of the season. I talked him into taking a quick drive to the area I had shot my buck a few weeks before. We got up there and there was a nice little 2X3 buck off in a field. I parked and there was a little hill we walked up and got him into a good prone position for a shot. He dropped that buck and we were back home 90 minutes after we left. I was much more excited than he was since his buck was bigger than mine and filled out the freezer. That was the easiest hunt I have ever done. Now I have a 13 year-old son and 12 year-old daughter that want to hunt. We are going to get their hunter safety done and then I will start them off on rabbit until they can handle my rifle.

Quick update, my 10 year old daughter has applied for the AZ Elk and Antelope hunts for this fall. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Some funny things happened on all the trips. One that comes to mind was with my middle daughter. She was 12 and it was her first deer hunt. We were walking along and she says "Dad, there's a water melon seed on your back... and it has legs!
Good description of a tick!

This is the hunter she turned into :)

OK, so no antelope or elk tags for my 10 year old daughter, what a bummer. Just applied for some mulie hunts in AZ for her. Wish her luck! Also bought my wife a license and put her in for a mulie tag too. That will be a first for her, and if she can't do it, she can donate her tag to my 10 year old daughter. Win/win situation if either one of them get drawn!

Here we were doing some more yote hunting...yeah, there is a 10 year old girl in that photo somewhere....
