This trip was more about learning the ropes of antelope hunting
to later take my son when he is old enough, and of course to get away from the midwest. Part of is is growing up dad and I never really left the farm to hunt, I am a bit more adventurous and always wanted to hunt out west and have quite a bit the last 7 years for various critters. I kinda want to make sure my son knows a bit more than just the farm or down the road a bit when it comes to hunting if you all can understand that.
My son is 4 1/2 years old and quite decent with his bb gun, what he doesn't have in accuracy he has in safe handling which is the main point right now. We went on a squirrel hunt yesterday and I let him take his bb gun, he handled it like a seasoned hunter and muzzle control was something I didn't have to get on him about at all. I figure if 2 hours with his gun in hand and no mistakes is pretty good. He likes me to tack his targets to the wall in my shop underneath my targets.
