Take a youngster hunting today instead of taking him to rehab tomorrow.

I was a cubscout, but in my small town all the boyscouts were non hunters and fishers and I just didn't get along. I dropped out when I was very young because it cut into my fishing and hunting time... (Which was spent with my dad and family)

from cub scout all the way to eagle scout......and asst scoutmaster after that.....grew up in va beach....we had 65 member of our troop....seems boyscouts in small town southern indiana isn't as popular....when my 4 year old is ready i'll get involved again......

a funny story....a friend of my during rifle and shotgun merit badge qualifications actually squeezed both triggers of a double barrel 12 ga....he didn't breath very easily after that..and the clay bird lived to fly another day...we were both 14 at the time....he gasped and wheezed for a while.....the rest of us laughed once we knew he was half way ok

scouts is great.....a definite well rounded education while having fun
Is a frustrated hunter swinging a canoe paddle after sunset at a fall teal breaking any laws?

Troop 53 of the French Creek Council. One of the oldest troops in the country. We were a bunch of misfits that had a lot of fun. Maybe we need to change the name to "Freedom Creek". Stupid France. Stupid snail hunters...

I was a cubscout until my troop pretty much dissolved. A shame too cause I was pretty good (I thought so at least).
A friend of mine had an old side by side 12 ga we used to shoot and I can remember shooting it one time and thinking "man..that shot was a lot louder and kicked a helluvalot more than the others" and thought maybe a heavier shell had slipped in with the others....when I broke it I discovered that it had fired both barrels. Thought maybe I had pulled both triggers and tried again...nope...something was definately wrong with that thing..we retired it until someone could look at it..but man did my ears and shoulder hurt.
"I missed 'cause everytime I shot I slid further down that log I was sittin' on."

I was a cub scout all the way to life scout. I was rebelious (sp) and I thought I would show my dad that I didn't want to do it since he wanted me too. Regret that now. My brother made eagle though.

I made to Life, but we had to move and wasn't a big thing in Amarillo Texas. I like to think that the scouts helped me be a better person.

Both my older brother and I are Eagle Scouts. My last few years I really thought about quitting. I sure am glad I didn't! For a while we had a lazy jerk of a scout master. No one else would take over the leadership of the troop, so my mom did. She was the second female scoutmaster in the nation. Funny thing is, during her three years as scout master nine boys in our troop earned their Eagle Scout awards. The best was at summer camp, all of the other scout masters would show off their gerber leathermen tools and compare whose was the best. They made sure to shun my mom from their group. Then my father bought her the most deluxe model leatherman you could get. The next year they were all showing off one day and she strolled up, whipped hers out and said "Not bad but I think mine's bigger." The look on their faces was priceless!

I was never in the scouts, down here the scouts are for the boys who can not play sports or hunt and fish. Nothing against the scouts, because I know of troops in North Texas that do a good job. Luckily I had a Dad who hunted and fished and taught me the ways of the outdoors.
Here's to us and those like us, There's damn few of us left.

I always wanted to join when I was little but never got into it. I thought it would be good for my son so I took him last year and started him in his first year as a Weblo. He did not enjoy it that much. He enjoyed being with the other kids but they ran the program for merit badges alone. Nothing was done unless it involved working toward a merit badge. My son and some of the other boys just wanted to have fun at activities but it was all badge driven. He really enjoyed knots, archery, BB guns and any of the other activities. But them he said "Dad, that all stuff I do with you at home anyways. Why do I have to come here and work at this stuff. It's more fun when me and you do stuff."

That was the end of that. Now he has more time for his bow, BB gun, .22, fishing and now learning to hunt.

archeryrob, that was me when I was a kid!

I did all that with my dad anyway, didn't need a little badge or anything. I think it would be fantastic for kids without outdoorsy parents though...
