Really? The commercial fisheries have taken everyone elses fish for actualy meals at home, thats sooo selfish! OMG. I hope your folks friends cut their f**king lines!
You should go with your folks to hunt. I think its good practice, and maybe they'll let you shoot next year. Under 16, you don't even need a hunting license. If your gonna shoot rabbits, a 22 is a great choice. Easy to handle, practically no kick back at all (not worries there, I shot one at 12 too) and I think you can take grouse too. They aren't expensive, and neither is the amunition. Great choice for a beginning "real hunting" gun. In fact, almost bought the 12 year old DD one today.
(I love that you offer me insight into 12 when I need it. Tell me, can I trust her with a gun???
I know !! I just wanna go punch one of them!!
Look at what i posted on your hnting thread :) I do have one
LOL, im assuming this is for your12 year old? Well, and this annoying kids father said this while on a camping trip and i have to agree "I would trust my son with a gun before bear spray. Because with bear spray, he wouldnt see it as a danger and play around with it But he would know to handle a gun well, because he knows its dangerous"
If that helps, but if your daughter is like me, she'll be begging to go hunting 8)
