I started hunting at the Pa legal age of 12.

Went out with my dad prior to that on hikes and a couple hunts.

I started going with my dad when I was 6-7 I didn't start carrying the gun until 12-13. I loved the woods and loved being out there..Still do. I didn't kill my first until I was19-20 I think, though school and military kept me from hunting a few years.

Started going out about 15-16. But I was going with my best bud, and basically observing him, kinda like what kids do with their dads.
Took a few years off, then started carrying a rifle, and took my first deer at 25. My buddy was whooping and smiling like a proud father!!! lol

My dad gave me a .410 when for Christmas when I was 3 months old. I have a picture next to it when Im still in my diapers. Ive been addicted to hunting ever since, evenm though I don't remember the addiction in my early years. That was 30 years ago.

I've been fishing for as long as I can remember. My dad took me on my first deer hunt I believe in either sixth or seventh grade. I fished and hunted pretty much everything legal down here. I've almost completely dropped fishing since then and have gone almost completely waterfowl within the past year. I only fish in the summer... saltwater only.
