    Over 65 years ago my Dad was a dad. He took me everywhere he went. We were always together. I was tagging along with him in the woods when I could hardly walk. In WV there is no age limit for hunting. He let me kill my first squirrel when I was 11 and then because we could only afford 1 Iver Johnson Champion single shot shotgun we took turns shooting squirrels until I was 14 and we were able to buy another used Iver Johnson shotgun. At that time I started hunting by myself. I thought he was the best hunter in the world and have never changed my mind.

    My dad inspired me to hunt. He did it without fanfare. He had tremendous respect for all animals and would risk his life to help them. He was also one of the most knowledgeable hunters I ever met and the overall best shot I've ever seen (until my nephew grew up). Since we lived on a small farm with 10 kids to feed, he viewed hunting as a means of survival and took it quite seriously. He lent me his shotgun by second grade and made it my job to bring home at least a half dozen pheasants after school in the Fall. He brought me with him and trained me for deer hunting for several years and I can still remember vividly that first day when at the age of 14 I could actually get a license and hunt with him. I still shake my head at some of the shots he made. I think that is why I have been practicing my whole life to try to get half as good as he was before I die.

    My Father and Mother never hunted but they took the family on camping trips every summer. Even when some of us were tiny babies still wearing diapers.

    With five Brothers we went canoeing, fishing, frog gigging, catching crawdads in the stream, climbing trees and exploring everything like bunch of maniacs.

    My oldest Brother started bow hunting with my cousin Harry who was an excellent long bow archer.

    So it all started in our family with Cousin Harry.

    My Grandfather took me on my first fishing adventure. He passed when I was very young. His son, My uncle then took me. I blosomed to hunting from him too. My father was a big time jock and wasn't into the outdoors. He did support me 100%. I get to repay my uncles kindness by taking him fishing in Oct. im really looking forward to it.

    My dad threw me in the duck boat when I was three and I loved it, he taught me how to duck hunt, but I learned myself how to hunt everything else like deer, turkey, rabbit, grouse, etc. my dad also gave me a fishing pole ate the age of three, I now own thirty, and fish in the local tournaments. Something else I took way farther that my father intended.

    Both my dad and grandpa when I was young. As I got older, my uncles were always inviting me along on all of their hunts. To this day my uncles are still some of my best friends and people I love to be around.

    Growing up on a cattle ranch in great hunting country and my Father was a great hunter. Jack O Connor's writing and Mr Hemmingway's helped fire my imagination for Africa. Also, there was an old, retired, sourdough, sheep herder who lived across our meadow who always had time for me. He was a self educated gentleman who I am sure had never been to school, but a voracious reader of good books . He insisted I set high goals and work hard at achieving them. His name was Harold Myles

    My father had guns, but he would go to hunting camp more to play cards than hunt (he was a rather successful gambler).
    A guy that hung around the coffee shop was the gun/hunting guru influence and got me started before I was old enough to get a license. Picked up some from skills from him and the rest is self taught - trial and error, lots of error.

    Hunting and fishing was my grandpa. He was the only one in my family who hunted/fished when I was growing up. When I was a teenager my uncle (and best friend) picked up fishing and we went all the time. He eventually started flyfishing, which was the inspiration i needed to start myself.

    Mine was my grandfather who is a avid fishermen. Then it snowballed into wanting to hunt and wanting to be able to be somewhat self-sufficient.
