Go someplace where you can let someone else do the shooting who doesn't mind a not-so-perfect young dog hunting with them, and like the others said maybe get away from all the gunfire. Last year I took my pup on his first hunt when he was around 10 months old. For the morning hunting my dad and I split off from the main group we were hunting with so I could focus on the dog. He did great and was ready to hunt with the rest of the group in the afternoon.
