Recently I watched a Wired Outdoors video of a 7 year old on his first turkey hunt in Pennsylvania. You can see it here http://wiredoutdoors.com/our_show/season_two/episode1.html
The father handled the hunt well but it appeared the young lad did not have enough muscle to control his gun.
This got me to thinking again about what age should a youngster be taken on their first hunt?
Perhaps an arbitrary age is not the correct approach as each kid develops mentally and physically at different rates.
So if not an age what would be the signs that a youngster is ready to hunt?
