Bingo.Is that a problem?
I’m struggling with the idea of guaranteeing success? Doesn’t this set the precedent that a “successful” hunt is one where you get something.
Kinda dovetails with the bizzare, my opinion, of reserving premium tags for kids in some states.
To a 10 year old- “Welcome to hunting, it’s all about killing shit, and the best things to kill have huge racks. All other aspects are unimportant.”
Personally, I enjoy wandering around the mountains with a super low shot to day ratio, some folks like feeder hunting in Texas… to each their own.
Growing up, we wandered miles, in the snow, in cotton jeans, with wet feet. Birds were sometimes few and far between. I and my brothers are all enthusiastic hunters.
Oh, and it was uphill both ways.....
My feeling is that people need to be honest with kids, and that means showing them what hunting looks like in an unvarnished sense. If they decide they don't like it, so be it.
