    Anybody willing to help newbies learn about hunting? List your home town, if so, and then folks can correspond by PM or Email about the possibility of FTF meetings.

    I'll sticky this to see how it goes.

    Age: 39 for a few more days.

    Location(s): North Eastern Illinois, Southern Illinois (Archery and Firearm Deer)

    Species Hunted: Deer (Firearm/Archery), Pheasant, Rabbit, Turkey (Youth Season only, I have a 11 year old daughter who likes to hunt and Mrs. Scout will only let me have one weekend in the spring to hunt. You and your child are welcome to join us.)

    Comments: If your in/near North Eastern Illinois and want to hunt or learn to hunt, send me an e-mail. I recommend attending a Hunter Safety Course and I can/will help with applying for tags, finding a HSC (my club conducts classes and the IDNR website has a list.) I also shoot Trap/Skeet and smallbore rifle at my club with the wife/kids.

    Pass it on.....

    Anchorage, Alaska....
    Age 30

    Available Game animals are:
    Moose, Caribou, Brown and Black Bear, Dall Sheep, Mountain Goat, Wolf, Coyote, Fox, Lynx, Ground Squirrel (marmot), grouse, ducks, geese, Musk Ox & Buffalo (if you draw a tag), Blacktail deer, Elk, and Wolverine! I also trap for Beaver, Muskrat, Pine Marten, Ermine, Lynx and fox.... :D

    To hunt Brown/Grizzly bears or Dall sheep you will need to contact a registered guide as it is illegal for you to hunt these animals on your own...

    For that matter, if you are going to spend the money to hunt this awesome place no matter what species you choose, a guided hunt is hard to beat. Alaska is not for the faint of heart and we have a lot of people that walk into the woods and never return.

    If you make it to the Anchorage area by all means look me up and we can show ya'll around... :D

    As I teach hunter's ed, I'm always willing to put my money where my mouth is. Besides, nothing gives me more pride than the success of my students.

    I would ask that anyone interested be willing (but not necessary) to attend my class. I refuse to be with anyone that is unsafe around firearms.

    P.S. Lennyjoe: Pay it forward has been my life's motto. Made more sense than "eye for an eye"... ;)

    east central Georgia: dove, squirrel, rabbit, hog, and deer.

    I'll be hunting the nearby WMA's. There's about 30,000 acres or more within 50 miles of here. Waynesboro is 30 miles south of Augusta, Georgia.

    I scouted the dove field today. Looks pretty good. Next season opens Oct. 1 at noon. It'll be interesting. I haven't hunted doves in much too long.

    Serendipity. The dove fields are strips that were planted with millet and then mown. The strips are in the middle of an old field with volunteer pines and broomsage. My favorite deer hunting setup. I've already picked a tree for my climber.

    Still looking for somebody in Oklahoma. I'd like to go for muzzleloader season, if anybody's interested. I'm willing to travel statewide; I have an airplane at my disposal, and I'm in the OKC area, so I'm within about two hours of everywhere. Anybody want to help me out?

    Are we talking about online consultations/corespondence? Sounds awesome if so. I've got lots of room to learn. Always looking for mentors.

    Port Lavaca, Texas 39 years of waterfowling passion. I've also been hunting deer, squirrel, dove, whatever for longer, but my passion is waterfowl. I am, however, a rifleman at heart. Shotguns are a necessary evil for duck hunting. :D

    About the only local hunting I'm not too experienced at is turkey. Just never had the place to do it. Hunted 'em once.

    I've got lots of good duck hunting, public, down here. But, I don't have my goose/dove hunting lease anymore.

    Anyway, there's a lot to waterfowling. Decoy sets, proper range and calling. Proper camo and concealment. Figurin' somebody getting into it might wanna learn a little quicker than I did on my own.

    Hunting in the U.P.

    Illhunter
    i live in michigans northeastern lower. im sure you know all about the tb in the herd and the "slaughter" as we all call it here. our local deer heard has been descimated the past few years and im looking to either hunt in the U.P. which seems to me to be about equal to our local hunting about 10yrs ago or to hunt in southern mighigan where the "corn fed" deer get much larger than anywhere in the state. id appreciate any advice you would have on hunting in the U.P. since ive never done anthing but fish up there and that was about 15 years ago.

    Hey Art,

    I'll help out here in Colorado. I could do some Parent-Youth varmint hunting in my area. If the landowner tag thing works out next year I could offer some Youth Pronghorn hunting. I'll help adults as well but I'm partial to the little guys.
