It's great to take the kids on hunts or teach them to hunt but don't let the mistake of taking them at an early age be your mistake, Wait until they decide they want to go and no sooner... If they decide they want to hunt, I would set a minimum age limit of 14 years old,,, no younger... it would be ok to take them at a younger age but only as learning spectators not hunters... and even at 14 years old IF you don't feel they are safe ethical hunters, then DON'T let them hunt yet... Some men or women may not agree with me on this but irresponsible Children and Hunting Weapons don't mix...

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.
