I don't consider a 6 or 7 year old to be a deer hunter. To me hunting is more than pulling a trigger. I think the parents and or friends probably hung the stands, the blinds, worked the food plots, scouted, etc. I think alot of 6 or 7 year olds could be great shots with a rifle and with no problem kill a deer. I think if the parents supervised and it is legal then go for it. Getting the children involved at a young age is not a bad thing and if done correctly will help them and the future of deer hunting.
