    Re: When were your kids old enough to backpack hunt?

    All my kids start competing at the local gun club at 6 years old with 22 rimfires.

    My oldest son shot his first buck on a back pack hunt at 8 years old. We were 4 miles in from the truck. At 10 he wanted to quit shooting the smaller bucks and shoot one's " like you shoot dad".

    The youngest would not have been mature enough until 12 or 13 for anything but a day hunt here in Alaska. Fighting the brush for an hour or two before breaking out in the alpine is actually hard work.

    Thanks for all the good responses. I am impressed. I can't think of many things better than sharing the wilderness with your kids. It makes me want to be the best I can so I can pass on as much as possible.
