Default How old were you when you started?

I'm 17 right now, and a lot of my friends are just recently getting into deer hunting. My dad started to take me out to the stand with him when I was 2 years old, and just try and teach me to be quiet and watch and listen. I killed my first deer when I was 7.

I started hunting when the Grandparents bought me my first air rifle when I was six. Our state required that you be 12 years old for your first deer permit. My dad was a work-a-holic and seldom hunted but Uncles and older cousins got me started early. Thios year ,with my broken foot, was the first deer season that I missed in 50 years.
