Not sure

Seems like I have always been hunting, grew up that way and Dad always hunted 24/7/365. I can't remember the 1st time, must have been when I was 3 or 4 mabe.

I am 48 now and still love every second of the hunting experience,

I believe I was 12 when I first went hunting. Dad never hunted, never been the outdoorsy type. I started hunting with cousins and uncles. I'm glad they hunted b/c I don't know what I'd do with my spare time otherwise.

The first time I held my own license I was 9, but I had been going with dad at 5 or 6. I am 48 now and have held at least a deer license every year sense. Wish I could say that I got to shoot something every year but I learned or taught something with each experience.

I was 10 when I took my first animal.... a snowshoe hare with a .410 shotgun.  Did a lot of small game until about 12 years old, when I took my first deer.
