I' m 32 been huntin for as long as I can remember, if it' s in season i' m huntin it. My wife loves to hunt, but can' t as much as she would like due to kids activities. My two boys ages 14 & 12 love to hunt also, but it' s my 7 yr. old daughter that begs to go everytime i leave the house, (surprisingly enough she is very quiet) and loves to shoot her bow.

Just turned 36 []. I started shooting when I was 4 and had my first bow when I was 8. It was a Ben Pearson recurve which I still have. I started hunting when I was 10 with a 28 guage single shot and have mostly small game and varmit hunted since then. This is my first year bowhunting and deer hunting seriously. I have a 5 year old and an 18 month old, both boys [8D]. As soon as they are ready, hopefully they will join in on all the fun.

32 here. Been at it since I was 9.

Recruited my 19 year old brother 2 years ago, and now he's hooked as bad as the rest of us. He's got a few friends on the fence .. just a matter of time before we've got them in the woods with us.

I am 32 and have been hunting since I was 6. My dad started me early, I took a few years off when I was in high school (girls& cars distracted me) but have since came to my senses. I hunt turkey, deer, hogs and anything else that is in season when my wife will let me out of the house. Introduced a buddy to deer hunting last year, he got a doe and is now hooked for good. My 10 year old daughter also goes with me early in the season when its not to cold. Our hunting club has 8 members and only one is older than I am.

My 6 year old grandson is clamoring for me to take him hunting already , but his Dad won't let him until he turns 8 . He has his own air rifle for now , tucked safely in Grandpa's gun cabinet , and will soon be the recipient of a .22 youth bolt .
