If you think he is ready then go for it. Its not like your going to stick him out there by himself. If your with him you can make sure he is safe with the gun and this is also a good way for him to learn firearm safety. My dad started me hunting when i was 5 and killed my first deer when i was 6. Its all about if you think he is ready.

at age 6 I'd say lucky shot. I would think any kid that little is going to flinch and or even close their eyes when pulling the trigger in antisapation of the recoil on any gun in a sutable size for deer hunting. not bashing anyone I just would not recomend any kid useing that size at that age. you can control the safety and their form but you have no control on their shot placement and at that age I wouldnt think there are many kids that could control their shot either. so as an adult you are taking a chance of wonding or faitily wounding an animal you cant recover or worse for the bragging rights of you kid killing an animal.

im not teaching him to hunt for bragging rights. and he is not hunting this year cause he is not a good enuff shot yet. his hunter safty knowlage is there, but his shot is not. trust me he wont be shooting at deer till he can shoot 3 seperat clay pidgens in 3 shots at 40 yards with my .270.

well the other night driving home from work the other night i saw a monster buck off the side of the road not far from home. the woods in that area are fairly small, and if that buck is in the area i could probably find him in a few hrs. was thinking about still hunting him mid day, sence i can only sit in a stand a few hrs at a time. then i thought it that sence i dont make a habbit of hunting this area, and if my son dose not do well keeping quiet as we hunt it would not rune one of my honey holes. what im thinking is takeing him along with me, and have him carry an unloaded gun. i think this would be a great way to have him "hunt with dad". pluss it will alow him to practice his hunter safty in a less controled environment than a shooting range, and alow me to evaluate how well he dose. what do you guys think of this? also his .22 does not have swivle studs so i could not put a sling on it, was thinking of having him carry my old 20ga. so he could have a sling, but it is al little heavier ( and i do mean just a little bit). what do you guys think of the 2 gun choises?

i say the gun w/o the sling would b better for starting out. he would have the gun in his hands at all times to practice muzzle control. i think the sling makes us somewhat lazy or even careless thrown over a shoulder. keep the gun ready at all times while hunting, or in his case practicing safe muzzle control. i just finished a hunter safety course with my 16 yo. well he did but i took it when i was younger.
