Starting em young !


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I quite often take a Roo for dog meat & my stepson who is 11 loves to give a hand when it comes to the butchering stage (his fond of shooting one as well ) But Tonight I've got him to do the whole prosses from shooting to Dressing & I must say I'm impressed! Considering that only 4yrs ago this kid had never been out of the city! It's amazing the transformation that country living produces!

Good on you, Dave!

Glad the lad is taking an active interest in the whole process.

Years ago, took my oldest daughter (8 at the time) small game hunting. She did OK until I had to field dress a rabbit. Guess the thought of butchering a cute little bunny was too much for her. Never wanted to go with Dad again.

I'd like to think that the lad will continue the "family Biz " When his a little older (so I can finaly retire) I have a 9yr old step daughter who is dead keen to go out hunting like her Brother! I have a little Remmington 1906 Boys rifle .22lr that she's practiceing with at the moment! The funiest thing was her watching as her Brother did the dressing & when she made mention that he was doing a good Job of Cutting the meat! He replied that he was butchering!Not Cutting!& she would be well advised to remember that!!!! Talk about out of the mouth of Babes!

Very cool, Dave.
Hope to train up my kids too.
I have a Remington Model 6 in .22lr waiting for the boys to grow up and as soon as it starts shooting straight it'll be a real cracker as a beginning rifle.

A whole new lease on life and a whole 'nother reason for second mortgage.
My purchases over the next few years are going to geared toward setting myself and my kids up for shooting.
Incidentally, if I haven't already said, #2 is due mid-November and looks like a boy as per the ultrasound.
Anyhow, I think I can already see the day when Bryn, #1 son, will lust after the biggest rifle Daddy owns.
If he's built like I am recoil is unlikely to be an issue.
I'm 6' 3" and 106kg so if he follows in his Daddy's footsteps he'll be handling big bores by the time he's 14.
Perhaps I'll buy an action for each of them and slowly build up a rifle for each of them to give them for their 16th birthday, letting them choose their own cartridge.
Meanwhile, they'll have to put up with their father's less orthodox taste in rifles.........

Mate take my advise & never let them see what you've got in the safe ! I lost a 310 that I had stashed for a rainy day for converstion! I came home from work one morning & was putting My work rifle away & the young bloke wandered in to see me & discuss how the night had gone ! He loked into the safe having never seen what I had in there & spoted the Cadet! Of course he askedwhat it was & in a moment of weakness & tiredness I explained what it was & how my first "Big Game" rifle had been a Cadet!Since then it has cost me Dies, Moulds ectThat was just the start He then went through & took possetion of any thing he thought he'd like to try !!!!!! Of course I've tried to discourage him Before the bug gets him but I fear I'm to late

The little swine has outshot me at western action a couple of times (mind you it would help if Dad did'nt "miss" as often as he does )
