Introducing a youth or a newcomer to the experience of hunting can be every bit as exciting as hunting for yourself-sometimes even more so. Whether your own children and family members or a friend, passing down this grand tradition and its attendant skills to a youth hunter is very rewarding. Many of us remember a father or grandfather teaching us the skills necessary to hunt and shoot as we grew up. I will always remember the skills my father taught me, and the time spent with him afield. To this day, I remember him on every outing. Becoming a mature hunter is about honing those childhood skills to be sure, but it is also about growing to see the importance of passing those skills on to coming generations.
