My Dad took me fishing numerous times but he wasn't much of a hunter. I went with him the one time I can remember him hunting small game and I walked in line with him and several other guys he worked with. He had a Browning A5 16 ga and an H&R 22LR leatherneck semi-auto both of which he taught me to use and allowed me to hunt with later. In High School a friend's family owned a farm and once I could drive I'd go to Dick's and we'd go plinking and rabbit hunting in season. My 1st 2 years in dental school my fall Saturday rabbit hunts with a neighbor and his friends provided Mrs R and me with most of our meat. After I got into practice I didn't have any opportunities to hunt until we moved to Kentucky and I took up deer hunting.
