5 Tips to Inspire a Young Hunter

Inspire Young Hunters

Safety is paramount. Attend a Hunter Education class together, and reinforce safe gun handling.

Bring plenty of snacks and dry, warm clothes. Unforeseen adventures may be part of the story, but being cold, hungry and tired can turn off a youngster.

Practice, practice, practice. Confidence in their shot will combat nervousness.

Start with shorter hunts. Build stamina, interest and appreciation of Wyoming’s great outdoors.

Meet a Game Warden and/or a wildlife biologist. Keep them comfortable around law enforcement, and learn about the species you’ll be hunting and seeing.
