    I think a lot guys are using their kids tags and saying the kid shot the deer.

    Not sure about 4 but all four of my kids started at 6 they all seemed to do fine. All depends on the kids and the parents. My first two boys started hunting on their own I think around 12 without me being with them. My last boy is 14 and I still keep him fairly close to me he still makes a few goofy decisions and I’m not quite ready to turn him loose on his own,probably next year I will. As stated above unless you personally know the people or the kids you can’t really make a judgement about what they should be doing.

    Grandson killed 2 with a crossbow @5 yrs old from a blind with me with him and hours of practice and him going afield with me on hunts and experiencing the end result of shooting a deer to make sure mentally he knew what the end game was
