It was not until my son was 15 that we really starting hunting together. For one thing he was not to interested and I did not have good equipment for him to use.

We eventually got in to it and enjoy the time we spend together. It is a gift. I did a couple of things that worked out well for us. Before buying guns, I had him try as many as I could. I made sure he was warm dry regardless of the weather. Finally I bought him a double gun for birds and he would use my 30-30 for deer. He just shot better with the double.
My logic was to get him as good equipment as I could afford so the experience would be fun and enjoyable. ( he also painted the exterior of the house that summer then I convinced his mother it would be better than cash ) The first year all I told him was learn to handle the gun and walk with it, be safe. He did get some birds and that made it all worth while. In the end, he probably has better stuff than me, and every penny was worth it.

Howdy longwalker. I hear ya i don't have any sons i have one daughter she is nine she shoots her bb gun and 22 cal rifle. She says she wants to hunt when she is twelve witch i would love she is still young and if she doesn't want to later i won't push it but if she does i will do everything i can to make it enjoyable for her. I look back at how many deer i cost my dad when i first started hunting and he never got upset with me (not once) he made it fun when he taught me. I am so thankful i had a father that brought me up in this life style and taught me the way he did given the chance i will do the same for my daughter.
