Just curious who your hunting mentors are and if you have thanked them. I grew up hunting in NJ. My Mom and Dad were not hunters. My Grandpa on my Mom's side and my Uncle on my Dad's side however were avid hunters. In the late 80's my uncle had a severe back injury. This was when he introduced me to the outdoors as he needed a companion to help him with field dressing and dragging. The first 4 years I spent with my uncle in the woods I didn't carry a weapon. He always would teach me ethics and if we were on a muzzleloader hunt I always got to unload the weapon.When I was 14 I took my bow and gun test and got my first license in NJ. My Uncles and Grandpa were fantastic mentors and I thank them every season for teaching me about the outdoors. If it wasn't for them I probably would never had gotten into hunting. Now it's my favorite thing to do next to capturing others hunts on video. I also grew up watching a lot of hunting videos and dreamed of one day being a part of something like that. Dad used to say "forget about that son that's for rich guys that don't have to work". Well I am part of a video production company now and I owe it all to my mentors. Be a mentor and take a kid hunting!
