Standman, you will be required to attend and pass a hunter education course no matter how many or what kind of firearms you were trained to use. Hunting is a far cry from combat.

He may be beyond hunter ed cut off. Some states I have hunted in don't require if born before 1949.

That would put him in his late 60's or early 70's, I doubt anyone is going to start hunting at that time of their life. However if they did, they would be stupid not to take the class. Shooting fully automatic weapons in the military does not prepare one to be a hunter.

And I'm 6' 5" 260+- yet that means absolutely nothing about hunting. Except maybe having a bit of trouble getting our fat arses up in a tree stand

Well he could be in his late 50's and I don't see why some one even in their 70 could not want to take up hunting at such and age.
US pulled out of Viet Nam in 1975 figure a minium enlistment age of 17 gets you 58 years old.
Regardless he bought a rifle and will probably have to take a hunters safety course since he is over the grandfather age for most states.
He is also saying at 6'3" and 250 pounds the US Army felt he was a ideal candidate to carry a M60.

Yooper, we were discussing someone of the age they would not need to take a hunter ed class, not just age.

Nothing wrong with a 770. I bought one for my kid to use, he decided he wasn't interested in hunting, so it's mine again. Surprisingly, it's one of the more accurate rifles I own, and it's seen it's share of usage.
