Poll: What should be the minimum age to hunt without adult supervision?

Newsvine - What should be the minimum age to hunt without adult supervision?


I'm getting tired of these stupid yuppies who portray hunting in a bad light and try to further restrict it.
There shouldn't be a minimum age, because it's up to the parent to decide if their child is responsible enough to hunt by themself.

10 years old but regulate the calibers to only 50 BMG or less.

Hard call. While I agree it is up to the parent, I know of some people that shouldn't be allowed to teach their children anything. I know of a few kids under 16 that I would not have ANY problem hunting with and I know a few adults that I won't hunt with.

It does put you in a difficult position, but I stand by my thought that it's up to the parent.

I would think it would completely depend on the kid. Like said earlier, I know idiot adults I'll never hunt with again and kids I'm proud to hunt with.

I think it should be up to the parents but I do agree with Dirk 100%. I was hunting by myself at 11 even though it was technically illegal.

I agree it's hard to put an age on it. Some kids are more responsible than some adults. I thought that the mandatory hunter safety classes woudl help. But when I took mine there were 5-6 year-old kids taking that class. Dad sat there and told them all the answers to the test so they could get their certificate. What good is that doing?
