    I don't wanna come off as a preachy wank but as a side thread to the older hunters how many younger hunters do we have? I'm talking under 30?

    Here in Aus other than my brother I know 4 blokes who shoot deer under 30 and two of those "deer hunters" are spotlighters and have literally not shot one out of the light between em. Of the two that do hunt, one is a snake who would poach his mums wallet leaving one decent hunter I know under 30 years old. It'd be great to have mates here to chase the sambar with but there's just no one.

    I've been a part of Aussie forums but they're nothing like this so I think everyone here should be really proud of how good it is.

    I know many do, but for those not you should be out hunting and getting to know each other because believe me your bloody lucky to have as many about as you do. I've met more helpful people here in a couple of months than I have my whole life and thats not an exaggeration.

    so with that in mind who are the young ones here kicking it up?

    Young Toby is seventeen and an avid hunter. That gets you underway Jackp. Dougie will chuck her hand up next
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I'm 26. Been hunting since I could walk. Well actually before I could walk, the olds have pictures of me in my backpack off hunting with Dad. Had nothing else to do as a kid growing up in the wops. Looking back I wish I was still a kid

    Im 19 and a keen hunter, been hunting for 2-3 years now, pretty much self taught. Get out almost every weekend, mostly solo trips. Shoot enough deer to keep me happy.

    27 here

    Only been hunting deer 3 or 4 years I guess (and probably not as often as most people on here), but had a 22 and a couple years shooting bunnies before that.

    Oooh so many young men into hunting, where's the mug shot thread?

    I've just turned 23, only just started the real hunting cheers to VietnamCam and KiwiGreg. I was knocking over bunnies with my best mate (he's now 40) since I was 18. Been tramping and target shooting since I was 12. Always been an intraverted outdoors kinda kid. Something went wrong around 2003 when I got the gift of the gab.....

    I honestly didn't realise there were so many young guys on here.
    She loves the free fresh wind in her hair; Life without care. She's broke but it's oke; that's why the lady is a tramp.

    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
