If it was that would be awesome!! Never understood the thinking that new hunters should start from the bottom. If the kid loves hunting, a giant first deer isnít going to make them all of a sudden stop hunting. When I take my kids and wife hunting and fishing I want them to get a crack at the best I can get them on.

After hunting season I chase trophy catfish and take the family usually. When a really big one hits I hand the rod to whoever hasnít caught a big one. Would never reel down on what I thought was a 50+ and say, ďnah kid this ones too big for you, you should start with 5 lbers.Ē My boys have landed a couple over 50 and 1 over 60 by themselves and Iím very proud of that. Wife and daughter are still trying to break 50 and hopefully do this winter. Any of them would drop what theyíre doing and go today if I loaded the boat. They arenít going to say no dad I caught that 63lber last trip Iím good. roflmao


I think it depends on the kid. My kid loves the outdoors and goes with me all the time. Even when he was little and knew he wasn't going to pull the trigger. There was value in teaching him management and not letting him start on top. Compare him to a kid who rarely gets opportunities and letting him shoot a big buck just might be the thing that hooks him for life. There are definitely pros and cons for both avenues.

If that were the case, I would be 64 years old and never have gotten my first one. I just hope it isn't my last one.

Sooo, youíre hunting for a doe with your kid and a 160 walls out, you take HIS gun away and shoot it yourself?!?! Thatís terrible, I wouldnít be able to sleep that night.

Still going after the best for mine. I would much rather my kids or wife kill a great buck before me. Iíve killed great deer already, and not sure theyíd be able to do it without my help. Thatís just me I guess.
