My husband got me started, and it was mostly an extension of me wanting to spend time with him and learn why he was so excited about hunting. I had shot guns before (target practice only), and he offered to teach me how to shoot and got me to help him do things like plant food plots and put out corn for wild turkeys before the season started. (We also built a two-person tree stand so I could deer hunt with him -- long story, but it didn't go well!) He was thrilled that I wanted to learn about it, and I had fun playing out in the woods with him. On the other hand, my sister got into deer hunting because she was close with my cousins and my uncles, and they took her out and taught her how to shoot something other and a .22 and helped her kill her first deer. I think as long as there is an interest in the outdoors and wildlife (both my sister and I grew up as avid deep-sea and reef fishers and shot rifles at summer camp) then it's not a far leap to hunting. It sounds like the interest is there -- good luck!
In God we trust, all others must show ID.
