What’s the appropriate age for a kid to start hunting? From my experience, most people throw around the ages 7, 8 and 9. But why are these the ages most people assume a child is ready to hunt? Is there even a “right” age?
A kid can go on their first hunt when they are emotionally ready to see a harvest, not at a certain age. At what age can a child comprehend death, the finality of it and the reasons behind a harvest? When your child (or grandkid!) reaches THAT age, he or she is ready. But, prior to that age, the child should be emotionally and mentally be prepared through exposure to the concepts behind hunting.
