Im 23 been hunting since I was 10. Hunting on my own at 14 with bow. As for the old lady she thinks im a murderer. Now my 3 year old, shes no doubt going to be a hunter. Shes been in the woods to help me bait a couple times already when it was still warm. Hopefully I can keep her interested untill she is able to draw a bow and hit what she aims at.Little while to go yet.

I' m 53, son Joe is 17. He has about 5 buddies who bow & gun hunt for whitetails. At least in our locale the young men seem to be willing to take up a proud tradition. I think it has a great deal to do with parental encouragement. I know our hunts together are super quality time. What a splendid affair it is to see the pure enjoyment on my sons face when he walks over to me and tells me he stuck another.

I' m 27 and just started hunting this year, I had been meaning to take the hunters ed. course for years but never got around to it, I lost my job and found plenty of time to get it in this year, almost a blessing in disguise. I must say most of my friends around my age don' t understand hunting, they think it is cruel, and would rather play Sony Palystation, or put on a collar shirt and dress pants and go out drinking in Boston. I think some of the younger people are too wrapped up in technology, nothing against it I enjoy it too, but I love the out doors. I live in southern NH, but the further north you go you find more hunters. When I moved here from Boston when I was 7, I spent all my free time catching bull frogs, snakes, turtles, and fishing, while most of the other kids were swimming, and playing on the swing set. I’ve always love camping fishing hiking and the great outdoors, but our type is limited. I know a lot of people who are just fair weather campers and even more who refuse to get their hands dirty, like it is some disgusting thing.
