    I saw that on MM and thought that it was way cool. Good on you for teaching them right.

    It's never to early to start the passion for hunting. Haters will hate, don't worry about it.

    You are doing a great job Jen. To some it wouldn't matter what age you started him out, that you hunt is the problem. Keep doing what you know is right and forget the rest.

    I saw the pic on Facebook and the first thing that popped into my head was now that is going to be a die hard hunter! People can have their own opinions and there will always be negative opinions about hunting. Would the same people have something negative to say if he was dressed up as a cowboy for Halloween sporting a couple cap gun pistols pointing them and a Indian? I doubt it. I think it is never to early to teach our kids ethics, safety, and respect! The earlier the better.

    Facebook just seems really stupid to me. Senseless drama!

    But to answer the question. Never too young! Your child will become a successful person if he learns to hunt and respects the animals he hunts the way you do! That is one thing I have seen repeated over and over in my life.

    Thanks everyone! It makes me feel a lot better to know I'm not the only one with the thought that its never to early to start teaching them! Apparently my thinking isn't too left field!

    Jen, way to go! Pissing people off. Haha jk. I take my 5 and 7 year old boys shooting bows at least once a week. As long as there is safety engrained in them. Much better than being at one of their friends home one day and their parents have a weapon laying around and they do something stupid with it. Here is a photo of my boys from quail hunting last week
