    Very early. I began fishing with my Dad at 3-4 years old. I began hunting with him at 5 using a .22 for squirrel.
    I do not favor one over the other as I enjoy each equally.

      I prefer hunting and started going out with my dad really early like Beekeeper, but probably can say I didn't use a gun till about 8 yrs old

        I started fishing as soon as I was capable. I lived on a lake so it was a daily occurence. I also started hunting as soon as possible. I do prefer hunting over fishing though.

          5 or 6 I started snaring rabbit, but couldnt take a gun til I was 10(provincal law), used to strap on my little plastic snowshoes and carry a "knocker", which is basically a 4 foot hardwood dowel with a large steel nut secured to one end.Any bunnies not dead in my snares got a solid whack to the head to finish them off.

              I hit the 1/2 century mark this summer, and I honestly don't remember ever not being interested in hunting. I hunted all sorts of grand beasts in the house before I was old enough to really get outside and used to cut animal pictures out of dad's old Sports Afield magazines and glue them to a cardboard box for a bb gun target. Fishing soon followed, I always say that I only fish when I can't hunt, or vice-versa, depending on the season. I would not want to have to choose, it's like a big steak vs. a nice seafood buffet, I like them both.

                I began hunting as far back as I can remember. First in my imagination, then with my father, then by myself as a very small child.

                  I've fished since I was old enough to do so...probably 4. I went hunting with my dad even before I was old enough to carry a gun, just to be in the woods and learn, which was probably a few years later...7 years old.

                    Oh, and it would depend on my mood for which I prefer...but I'll say fishing.

                        I prefer hunting. I have been interested in hunting and fishing my whole life. I didnt start hunting till i was 12 because in PA that used to be the minimum age requirement.

                                Because guns never wear out, the manufacturers need a reason for customers to buy new guns, and new cartridges serve that need.
