Good deal, Its good to get

Good deal, Its good to get kids through a coarse before trying to plan a hunt, in oregon there is no age restriction on kids taking a coarse, they just need to be able to handle a firearm and understand the material. I have already put my 2 oldest kids of 10 and 9 through oregons hunter safety class. its not only good to get them involved with hunting early but also gun safety. I encourage al parents to sign there kids ups as soon as your state allows.
