My boy has just turned 5 and this is his second season out with the ferrets, he loves being out in the countryside, not just the ferreting but the whole being out thing, i don't think you can start them too young, but i would also never force them into it if they didn't enjoy it.

This is a pic from this weekend.

Must admit, he normally looks happier than that, LOL.

Get him out there mate and pass on your knowledge to him....he will then do same in turn to his young uns when he has them....my 7yo girl wont come hunting cause she is to girly and likes sparkles and pink but she will help with skinning and gutting and has even attempted to help pluck the pigeons i shoot and loves it......my son's of which i have a few love it....my eldest was in all sorts of crap till he went hunting....now i never see him he is out shooting on HIS permission which he got through me and loves it

if your little fella is out hunting and learning with you then there is no better place... it will soon come to the time where he has a choice.. go roaming the streets causing trouble or go roaming the fields hunting and getting a fantastic life experiance... when i have kids ill teach them from day one respect animals but they are food...
