I have a 5 year old. Last year I took him hunting for the first time. We went out and hunter stupid chickens. He watched and learned from me hunting them. This year I'm taking him to learn duck hunting. He really enjoyes the trip out and likes to watch hunting shows. Since he has an interest I'm trying to teach him as much as I can for the day when he actually goes and hunts. My question is for people with kids that hunt. At what age did you allow your child to psycially hunt? Yes I do know about the hunter Ed.
