Hunter safety

I'm 16 and want to start hunting but I don't want to go to hunter safety with a bunch of 10 year olds. What should I do?

What state?  Most of them

What state?  Most of them have a on line course that you can take but the shooting test has to be done in the group.

Here is the page that you

Here is the page that you want to check out.  The one that you want is towards the bottom of the page.

I just looked at it and you have to be 18 for the one line course.

I doubt you'll be the oldest one in class.

Take a friend that hasn't

Take a friend that hasn't gotten his yet or even a girlfriend.  I have been through it three times with different people each time.  My first one was with friends in Jr High School, the next one was 5 years later when a friend wanted to go so I went with him.  The last one was with a girl friend that wanted to take up hunting.

So What?

Who cares if you are the oldest one in class?

Keep your eye on the end goal, the completion certificate. What's the big deal if you do it with a bunch of ten year olds? I'm willing to bet you won't be the oldest there. Dads amd Moms take it too with their kids quite often.

Like I said above, keep your focus on the desired result. Have the maturity to not worry about being out of place no matter what endeavor you participate in. Just use this as another Life Lesson and get it done.

I have to agree with Biker.

I have to agree with Biker.  Suck it up and just get the course completed.  Who cares who else is there and how old they are?

I took mine last year at the

I took mine last year at the age of 36.  Had only hunted in AZ previously and didn't need one there.  I would say about half the people in there were around my age or older.  Its a couple hrs once and is good for the rest of your life. 

and there is no shame in getting beat on the range by a 10 yr old, they have sharper eyesight and a lower center of balance!!
