How can you let your kids hunt…with a gun?

Posted on 10/18/2020 by Greg Yoder

We live in a time where many people believe guns kill people. Unfortunately, evil people DO use guns to kill people—but they use other things, too. I’m not going to get into a gun debate with you, but I got a message from a mom who was asking how to answer criticism about her kids who hunt. Here are a few reasons why kids should hunt.1 First, it teaches gun safety, responsibility, conservation, and how to provide food for a family. It also teaches “discipline, patience, endurance, disappointment and failure”—life, basically. It also keeps family tradition alive and gets your kids out of the house and into the woods or a field to see God’s creation first-hand.
