How old were you when you started hunting. Did your dad show you the ropes or ?

My
dad took me to the deer lease when i was just about six years old and i
set on a tall stool so i could see the deer and some times i would lay
in the floor and get some sleep but he always got me up when the deer
came in or he was going to shoot . now i am taking him to the lease and
still having a good time!
Sure did learn a lot from that.

Do u guys have a story to tell ?

That is so cool that you still hunt with your dad!!!!

I started hunting on my grandpas land in Longview Tx. My dad does not hunt
so I was kind of self taught. Grandpa showed me some but he was not getting
around so well (war injuries) so if I wanted to get in the woods I just had to go! He sold the land when I was in high school and my hunting stopped.
Traveling all over the country for work I did not hunt till I moved back home
to Texas in 1998. A fella I was working for brought me to his lease in Sonora
and I got rehooked hard!!! Started TCHA and now the rest of the story is yet to be written......Cull

I've hunted since before I remember. My Grandpa once told me a story that when I was about 4-5 out on his place with a BB gun. I came in the house bragging that I shot a fish out of the tree in the back of the pasture. So Hunting and Lying about hunting came at an early age. I still get teased about that from some of my uncles.

I grew up in New Mexico, so it was prime hunting land. We never could afford to go for big game, but always went quail hunting. I didn't start hunting big game until college. I bought a .270 from Walmart, took it straight to the deer stand and shot my first buck with the first shot from that gun. I didn't even have a scope. Looking back, that probably wasn't a good idea, but I didn't know any better back then. That first buck is still the biggest I've ever taken.

I started out just dove hunting with my dad and my uncle when i was like 7-8. I didn't get into deer hunting until college because we never had a place to go. Now i still hunt with my dad and my uncle on their lease.
