I don't have much time so I will keep this short and sweet. I got my moose and caribou meat,this year, yet I am a bit dissapointed in the hunting future out there.
I hunted one of the most populated hunting areas of the state this year. There were big rigs, argos, wheelers, track rigs, utvs, and wheelers galore. With all the opportunity to take kids hunting I saw 3 kids under 20 out there. Kinda makes me afraid for the future of my 2 kids. My 12 year old did amazingly well on a 450 honda this year, 30 miles back. He was the one in camp that made the adults "buck up" and work and hunt and he led by example.
I know I might be a broken record on this issue of kids and hunting, but I think it is important for kids today and the future of hunting. Our lifestyle is declining as hunters.
I know why people take kids hunting. Why don't parents take kids hunting?
