I remember my dad dropping me off with my 30-06 at the age of 14 on a deer trail and said to me, I'll see you at dark. I matured faster than most boys my age mentaly that is, I was the oldest out 3 boys, and my dad introduced us to hunting at a an age of 6, sitting by his side with my BB gun in a dove field. I once shot a dove out of the tree that winged. He was going to mount for me, but dove are a little tough. Hunters safety was taught to me early by my father, and I also took hunters safety. My first year deer hunting when I was 12, I didn't carry a rifle, but If I saw one, the old man said I could shoot it. I never used binoculars so much in my life. :laughing: I think maturity has alot to with being able to wander by yourself carrying a firearm in outdoors, may it be the marsh or the woods.
