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

Posted on 3/6/2019 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, learning to live with 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.
