    started fishing really young...probably 3 years old. I don't know which I like more, but I seem to spend the most money each year on hunting, so based on that, I probably like hunting more :-)

    I caught my first fish at age 3. I hunted rabbits and such at about age 7 with a BB gun and then a single shot .22. I enjoy both activities equally.

    Some of my earliest memories are of my father telling me turkey hunting tales for my bedtime stories. He took me fishing as soon as I was old enough not to eat the bait and gave my my first gun when I was ten.
    I've never lost my enthusiasm.

    I like to do them both but if I had to pick, it would be hunting. I began hunting at about 4-5 years of age with a BB gun and by the time I went to first grade, I used a .22 for squirrels and rabbits. I got a shotgun when I was 12 and started pheasant hunting almost every day during pheasant season. I think that there is a certain excitement from the anticipation of stalking game that you see that you don't get from fishing. However, getting a big fish when you least expect it is still pretty exciting.

    Big O-
    I'm still laughing at your comment above!

    I began fishing at a very early age,perhaps 5-or6-years old. I began to hunt for birds and chipmunks at 7-years old, when I got my first bow.

    My dad would take me "hunting" in the afternoons as a toddler after he came in from his morning hunt. My first real deer season "when I was allowed to shoot" came after my ninth birthday. I Cant remember when I began fishing but its always been a big part of my life. I love both sports, but the woods call to me much louder, each year when those leaves start falling, than the water ever has.

    Fishing- Before I could walk. (Ask my mom !)
    Hunting- Not long after !
    Good luck with your survey !

    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.
