Gun exposure: Having contact with any type of gun makes it more likely that a teen would get injured by one. Hunting increases opportunity to be in contact with guns and therefore increases the chance of injury by one. Hunting for food is not inherently bad but the teen's perspective should be taken into account (never force them to do it) and extreme caution should be taken with gun safety.
