I have took a Hunters Safety Course, I know how to operate a weapon. Iv'e been hunting a few times with my mothers friend,with my moms second husband and with my moms second husbands dad. I know how to shoot,I know how to put the shell into the firearm,I know how to shoot it,I know were the safety is, and I know not to point the gun at anything but what i'm shooting at. Like any parent I could expect her to be worried about letting her son go hunting by himself for the first time but what could I say to her to let her know i'm safer then she thinks i would be by myself. She told me a bit ago she hasnt said no yet but shes just a little weiry about letting me going hunting for the first time. Any ideas?
