usually i do as well,but it was late and with him being under 21, it was the best word i could think of.
also, it's not just about hunting laws but state laws regarding a minor in possession of a firearm. in Texas, a minor, (18 for a long gun and 21 for a pistol) can't buy from a dealer, can purchase from a private party, can legally posses a firearm. other states have different laws and provissions. he needs to check state firearms laws, because if he violates them, it won't make any difference if he's hunting or driving down the street.
