This was Youth Weekend in Vermont: a weekend of youthful hunting in the woods.
I have twelve fifth and sixth graders in my homeroom. Here are the numbers:
- 92% have used a gun
- 67% hunt (deer, moose, bear, game birds, coyote, etc)
- 58% own their very own hunting rifle
All of the students take Hunter Safety. They are not going out willy-nilly. And they all go out with a licensed adult.
