Default the uninformed !!!

I'm sure this has happened to you guys too. Why do the non hunting community always think you are having a bad influence on your own kids when they find out you put a gun in their hands. My 5 year old shows more gun safety than my neighbors 17 year old and his father is an instructor at Issac Walton league.

i tell folks its, guns, a tool just like a skill saw or chain saw or matches. supervised use of the tool is teaching respect for all dangerous tools.

You know it's funny how people give you a dirty look when they find out you hunt and then a totally frowned apon look when they find out you teach your kids. I used to get so mad but as I got older my father explained that people from the city are not as excepting of stuff like that and frown at the thought of guns. With my kids I tell them not to tell people that they like to hunt or have and shoot unless they know that person is into the sport or hobby.

Redman, I think that is the wrong approach. your kids should not be ashamed of what they do. we need shooting and hunting to be accepted and to do that it needs to be mainstream not fringe behavior.

I agree with the other replies you shouldn't tell your son to keep it to himself, if he's proud of it then let him boast about it.
Hiding the fact or having him keep it as a secret may make it seem like there are reasons to keep it on the down low and there aren't any reasons,
so I say let him Boast with Pride.

It's not being ashamed because they're not at. I just tell them not to get into discussions unless the other person likes it too. The only I say that is, I don't want someone to convince my kids that it's wrong when it's my job to teach them that. As they get older they can actually make valid points on why they want to hunt. Right now I think it's because daddy does.

iwould tell him to talk about it when ever and were ever he wants to and if some liberal tree hugger starts giving him a hard time, to tell them to pound sand.

Very true but my little hunter is only 6 and can't put up too much of an argument. Cloven hoof stalker it's how some people know hunter safety and who practice it.
