To agree with the other ladies, she's either gonna love it or hate it. My daddy brought me up right, and ive been huntin (of course, just as a guest, not actually shooting) since before i can remember, and got into the actual hunting when i was 10/11 i think. Now, duck huntin is my LIFE. And currently, im strugglin with the off-season, but shootin clays and trainin my pup passes the time. Before you get her into actually huntin, u might wanna take her to a range, maybe just watch the first time, shoot some clays, show her the proper gun safety, then gradually take her to shootin. If she doesnt like shootin, take her out one mornin, not TOO early so she doesnt have to get up early and start off sleepy/uncomfortable, and just go sit in the blind, dont even take ur shotgun, watch the sun come up, set out some decoys so you'll get some ducks in. Its just one of those things, you either appriciate the beauty of it all, or not.
Its just one of those things you gotta deal with
You cant force her...if shes not into it, but likes the outdoors, then go campin, fishin, other stuff shes into
and to Dek - that may not have been a good start haha, but she should understand you gotta put him out of his misery. I remember the first time i saw it though, and sometimes it still isnt easy. Just a few seasons ago(it wasnt the first time, but one of the worst), i was huntin with my dad and brother, and my dad crippled a green-winged teal, and it was too far of a swim for our lab, so i walked her out to the point, she went and got it, and brought it back, still well alive, but obvious head injuries, and i just couldnt do it (somehow, if we're huntin out of the boat, i can shoot it in the water after its down, but nothin hands on) sooo i carried it for the 5-minute walk back to our blind, handin it to my dad, and he wringed it.....and after all that....its body was still a-kickin. I figure if i can get past that.....i should be ok, and a headless duck serves well as a pup-trainin dummy.
