Well first off I wanted to say hello to this great community. But my real thing i wanted to ask was my Dad always said he would take me hunting but I think he either forgot or just won't and I was wondering if any fathers could give me any advice in fact any teens. Its not because he doesn't like me using guns since I grew up with em' and shot em' most of my life. So just wanted to say hey and get this answered.:thumbup:

HuntingJames 10-17-2009 10:16 PM

i will say this. i am a dad and would much rather my son hunt with me than by himself. i see you mention being a teen. that is i wide gap my advice to a 17 year old would be much different than to a 13 year old. how old are you?

HuntingJames 10-17-2009 10:25 PM

13 but very mature and smart for my age and i defiantly know gun safety and I am safe

if the laws in your state are the same as in mine, you can not hunt by yourself. so that option is out. if you are meture for you age, than you more than likely have the respect of your dad. i would ask him to sit down with you for a talk. then ask him why it is he does not want to take you? he may have a spacfic consern about you hunting that need to be adressed. then you will know what needs to be fixed, before he will take you. it may just be that he does not want to drag himself out of bed at 4:30am on his day off from work. in that case if you have and unkle that will take you you could sugesst that. or if he has a friend he trust with your safty that he ask that friend to take you.
