Kentucky's youth-only deer season is coming up Oct.10-11.
Safety always comes first, but for adult mentors, patience isn't far behind.
Hunting for big bucks or to fill the freezer may be an adult hunter's goal, but kids are out there mostly to have fun.
"I would recommend more than anything to make sure the young ones enjoy it," said Will Connelly, a hunter training officer with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "You shouldn't put pressure on them to shoot something."
