I think 6 years old is still a little too young, taking him along on scouting trips and teaching him about
hunting and hunter safety at this age is great thing but at 6 years old I don't think a 6 year old has developed
the mental capacity to dertermine what it means to be a safe hunter and I don't believe a 6 year old is able to be responsible with a weapon.
You know the old saying "Don't let kids play with scissors" Why would anyone even think of putting a weapon in their hands?
