Hunting with your kids can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life and the lives of your little ones.
But without some important lessons in safety, the love of hunting could cause more harm than good.
Here are 5 tips to help the little lessons along!
1. Gun Safety:
Kids love to play like they are shooting things, and this is fine and normal, but when you put a real gun into their hands some rules need to be enforced.
Never aim at something you don't plan on shooting.
Never assume the safety is on or the gun unloaded.
2. Clothing Rules:
Always wear something other hunters can see, like blaze orange which is invisible to deer but a clear signal to other hunters.

Never stand in front of another hunter or where another hunter might not see you!
Take care of your things. Cleaning and properly putting away your equipment when you are done is a sign of a smart hunter!
Last (but not least) respect what you are hunting. Never kill for fun or out of anger. Hunting is an awesome and useful skill. Treat it like the gift that it is.
