This rifle season I was fortunate enough to have some company in the form of my 11 year old daughter. We hunted hard the first day getting some action the first day missing an opportunity in the closing minutes of daylight, but listening her tell me how it got her blood flowing and watching her struggle to keep the gun barrel steady was the highlight!! We went out both Saturdays but still ended up with no deer just irreplaceble conversations and time spent together. The mentor program is a great program. I'm thankful for the opportunity to share this pastime with her and was wondering how she was going to make it waiting till twelve to hunt. She's been ready since age six. Even at eleven her knowledge and respect for the outdoors is a source of pride in me words cannot express!! The father of three girls, I was worried about not having the chance to share this with them and am now blessed that I can!! take a kid hunting and experience a whole new joy in hunting and remember long hair and painted nails still look cute in camo too!!! Don't miss an opportunity!

Nice post, I can't wait till my little ones are old enough to go out. Now every day that I go, when I get home they want to see what daddy shot!

Wing,

Very well said! I hope you don't mind my new signature, if you do let me know. Excellent post here, it truly brings to light what it's all about. Sounds like your girl is hooked for life, and if she ever lets hunting get away from her she'll always know that there is a place out there willing to get her blood pumping. I love reading about youth's in the woods.

my only hope for her is a husband who is understanding that daycare other than myself must be set up prior to all hunting seasons!!!
