    Welcome to the "hunt club". If you love the outdoors, you'll love hunting! May I suggest first taking a good hunter safety course, and also a gun safety course. You might meet some people there that will help you get started. I'd also suggest that if you use the hunting shows and magazines to learn from, just keep in mind that they are trying to sell products, and everything they give you in there is not necessarily needed or work in the area you are hunting. Some of the information is usefull, but not all of it. The shows are mainly for entertainment purposes only.

    You'll also get alot of information on this forum, as there's alot of years experience in people on here. Just remember to find someone that can not only teach you the safest way to hunt, and the best tricks, but also can pass on the ethics and values we are proud of.

    Good luck and enjoy the sport.
