Like trapshooter1 stated the orange army is one of the main reasons I have for the love for of hunting. For me as a kid it went way beyond the couple days of 1st gun (3 if I skipped school). I was blessed to have a couple mentors in our group that taught me way more than just killing a deer. These guys would take me squirrel hunting, mushroom hunting, trap shooting, you name it when I was kid. They went above and beyond to take me in and teach me woodsmanship. Then numerous times they'd invite me into their home for a meal of what we harvested. A couple of those guys have passed now and every once in a while I think back of some of those hunts and realize how lucky I was. I still go back for opening weekend but not because of the deer hunting.
