Default The first time you went hunting

What animal? How old were you? How did you feel?

My first animal, period, was a squirrel I shot with my dad's 870 Wingmaster when I was 10. I was extremely excited.
My first deer was with my Winchester .30-30 when I was 14 and my knees were knocking before and after I shot it.
Good memories.

121 lb doe. I was 9, it was the first time I went hunting. I was using a Remington Model Seven youth in .243 Win. Got her through the lungs at 85 yards with factory iron sight.

My first hunt was a walk along with my brother, dad and uncle... pheasant hunting in MI...I was maybe 7 or 8. I was fascinated...my dad used to shoot trap and reload shells so my brother and I tagged along sometimes to the trap shoot.

I grew up in Indiana and as we got older, we accompanied my dad and uncle on quail hunting trips occasionally in NW Indiana and I was hooked. A tornado hit our house and laid down the trees in our area when I was in the third grade...at age 11, I got my first single shot shotgun and the tornado inadvertently created some of the best rabbit cover I have ever seen...rabbits, squirrels and later deer and ducks as I got older.

I don't hunt much any more but my love of the outdoors and rural living/lifestyle was cemented at an early age.

First trip 45 years ago when I was 13 , 12ga spring field pump shotgun sitting on a swamp buggy with a man that worked for my dad. Hauled to his camp at the butt end on 12mile prairie in south florida. No deer killed and scetters eat me up. Had a great time. Did kill a deer a couple days later and learn how to clean a deer and puke at the same time. ha . Miss that ole camp and the man that taught me about hunting. he been gone 4 years now but raise a daughter than another deer slayer. To broke down to hunt much anymore too.

First time I went hunting I was with my older brother. We were hunting for rabbit and squirrel. I didn't get anything but I will always cherish those memories.

I also remember my first few times out deer hunting with my brother and grandpa. Took me 3 years before I brought one home.
