There’s no greater joy to a seasoned hunter than passing down our hunting knowledge and traditions to the next generation. We feel a sense of accomplishment that we’ve taught our soon-to-be adult how to be independent, resourceful, and strong.
These are valuable lessons that will help carry them through adult life’s hardships, even if they don’t adopt hunting as a yearly tradition. Once you’ve sat through hours of waiting in the freezing cold for that perfect shot and faced the fear of gutting your deer, you realize you can achieve anything.
Teaching Someone to Hunt First Time
Similar results are enjoyed when we show an adult how to hunt for the first time too. Perhaps this person grew up in the city and never learned about the great outdoors, never learned about the animals.
A lifelong hunter is a conservationist tuned in to the environment and what is healthiest for the survival of the animals living within that environment. Passing down this knowledge to those who have the wrong idea of the world of hunting is a duty we carry out with pleasure.
How to Mentor Someone?
Whether you’re mentoring the next generation on the time-honored hunting traditions or showing a new adult hunter the wonders of the outdoors, be proud that you’re helping another individual gain the strength and fortitude to meet this world’s challenges.
If you have not experienced the world of hunting yet, don’t be embarrassed or afraid. You’re not too old to get into hunting.
You’ll need to take the hunter safety course and then find a hunting mentor. Ask for help from your hunting family and friends. If they’re not a good mentor for you, they may know of a learn-to-hunt program in your area or other hunting mentor programs. You’ll be glad you did it.
