    Not sure what my opinion is on this. I see no problem with young hunters at all. I used to carry my .22 over my shoulder and walk down main street of the little town I grew up in. I shot my first buck when I was 12 (youngest legal hunting age then in OR). Then again, that world seems eons ago compared to current society.

    I think it's pointless. 98% of youngsters are accompanied by an adult when hunting anyways. I just think you'd be depriving kids of a great experience. I had the best bonding times with my dad when he'd take me hunting with him.
