At what age should you take your child hunting? I grew up in Maryland where there is a legal age of 12. Now my father was not one to pay attention to such rediculous legislation and so I was tagging along with him on rabbit hunts and pheasant hunts since I was big enough to keep up, Red Ryder in hand. Now that I have recently became a father, I plan to instill the same hunting tradition and values in my son as early as possible before video games have a chance to warp his mind. All this assuming he wants to go of course. So what do you guys think? How young were your kids?
