A solo deer hunt at 13 is impressive, well done!My Dad bought my brothers and I a Marlin .22 when I was 9. He taught us to shoot and all about gun safety. He would fill up bottles and jugs with water or other stuff, so that we got some good visual feedback when we shot. I went on my first solo deer hunt when I was 13...took a nice 8 point with a Marlin .30-.30. I'm greatfull for my experiences with my Dad.
I taught my boy with a Ruger 10/22 and as soon as his arms were long enough, he took to all my bolt actions pretty well. He likes the handguns better though.
