first kill?

if you are a hunting family, what age did you let your kids get their first kill? dd is 6 & told me yesterday that she wants to go on the next hunt & shoot a hog or deer. well deer is out of season but hog is year round. we are hunting birds on tuesday but i don't want to pull her out of school. and yes, we eat what we kill. if the freezer is full we don't shoot anything.

~update~

we did great on the hunt yesterday! i didn't let dd go since it was a school day, but she did help clean the birds & it didn't phase her at all. i think she'll be fine going with dh on his next hog hunt.

I was just wondering this too. My girls are constantly wanting to go hunting with Daddy. My dad never took us girls with him and didn't start offering to take my neice until she was in middle school which is way later than when he started taking my nephew.

 My son got his first kill when he was 6. It was a pheasant.

Texas. As long as she's with an adult who's taken hunter safety she can hunt on their license.

my son just shot his first deer hes 11. and i cant tell you how proud he was when we ate it! i think its good to teach your kids that food doesnt always come from the grocery store.

We're hunting pheasant on tuesday. I think I'm going to let her help dress out the birds.

I killed my first at 3. My hubby isn't a hunter but my ds got his first this year and he's 4. I think it all comes down to how well the child listens to you cause it can be a very dangerous sport.
