Hunting Mentors

Courtesy an effort by Bobson:

I was going to include a column for the type of game each mentor hunts, as well as one for the tool(s) the mentor uses (bowhunting, rifle, etc), but the table was too cluttered, imo. Plus some of the mentors hunt every type of game, and use everything from rifle, muzzleloader, archery, and everything in between. I figured it would be better to let each "student" discuss the game and type of hunting with the mentor for his area.

I organized the list alphabetically by state, and tried to include a specific area of the region when applicable, if supplied by the mentor. I also did my best to keep the table clean, but it's still a bit cluttered... maybe a moderator can clean it up more effectively, if need be. Here's the updated list:

Obviously many of the people who offered to mentor over the years aren't listed here. Those who aren't didn't respond to my PMs over the last month. If I left anyone out, I apologize, and will fix it if it's brought to my attention. Thanks a lot to everyone who helped complete this. Best of luck to all you future hunters out there.

We have a mentor program going here in North Carolina now and I signed on the first year.My Dad was one of the best hunters around and a top hunter safety instructor and he always instilled in myself and my brother,to keep our sport alive we need to teach others.We as hunters have the responsibility to pass our heritage on to others,nobody is gonna do it for us and there are to many groups that want nothing more than to stop all hunting.Keep our sport alive by taking a new hunter along with you and teaching them the right way.

I can help anyone looking for help with hunting in Alabama and parts of Georgia. I have been hunting these areas since the 70s for turkey, deer, and pretty much all game animals.

I know it is late in the season for deer in VT ( I am going back out this evening to try) but I have not had a lot of luck if anyone is in Northern Vermont and willing to show me more of the ropes that would be great, even if it is next year.

I am new to archery have never been hunting because my dad never did it and always worked, I would like to find that someone who would be willing to take me on and teach me I'm a quick leaner and an upstanding person, no criminal record not even a speeding ticket! I live in concord nc, if anyone has any advice to where I could find a mentor please let me know I would love to be able to teach my future kids thank you!

I've never gone hunting, but I know it is in my blood. :)
I really appreciate if any expert can let tag along, and whatever I got will be your.
As long as I still go with you, you take all the meat. No matter how many times.
I have bought my WMA permit and hunting license.
I am in Jupiter/West Palm Beach area, so Southeast and South Regions are better for me to travel. I have a 30-30 and I will get a short gun next week.
Please give me a shout! Thanks much in advance

Hey, great list. Don't think I will need to use it, but great post. My best friend here in Northern Idaho has spent his life hunting, logging, fishing, camping and hiking in these mountains. His grandpa taught him to hunt when he was only 5.

Greetings! Hopefully some people are still keeping an eye on this thread. I just noticed THR had a hunting forum and decided to join up. Can't believe I haven't thought of joining THR 'till now. I've lurked here a good bit over the years.

I'm in North Georgia, looking for an experienced hunter to let me tag along for my first deer hunt. I've been trying to get ahold of some venison for a couple years now, but still haven't found anyone willing to train a noob. I'm good with safe and clean shooting, and am even willing to do field-dressing and butchering, I just have no idea how to actually find a deer in the middle of the woods. :P

Shoot me a PM if you're interested. I tried the mentor listed for GA, but looks like he hasn't been active here since July, so not sure if/when I'll get a reply. Thanks!
