Parental mentoring hunting has far reaching effects I never imagined. Brought up both my sons to love and excel in the sport of hunting. It brought skills to the kids I never knew till years later, that would result in saving their lives.

My son wrote me from Afghanistan how those hunting lessons gave him and the men under his command the edge over those who were trying to kill them. The boys favorite movie was "Sergeant York", the country boy who went to war relying on the use of hunting experiences.

I won't go into all the details of his service, but he credited those formative years hunting game with bringing his men home from many engagements. He often wrote of the city kids in his platoon who had a distinct disadvantage over the "country boys" who had hunted.
