Until my son got old enough to hunt I always hunted alone and preffered it. Now I can't hunt alone because he has to go all the time, and now he is 18! I wouldn't have it any other way.

Just be thankful you have something to do with yourself while unemployed.

I do have buddy I hunt with all the time, but he is meaner then me, and knows the drill.

Mountains don't bother me or my buddies for that matter...I would rather hunt with someone...I am still young but I have harvested a lot of animals in my short life and its all about sharing the hunt now days...Trying to film more and putting less fortunate ones on game...Oh well I will be out there again in the morning...

Never been to Woodbury. If it's not to far and you don't mind, maybe I can find it to hunt.

I agree, I hunt alone 95% of the time but would rather hunt with somebody and share the experience,it is hard to find anyone to go with these days though.

I thought everyone hunted alone. I wouldn't have it any other way. I don't have to jack with anyone else, nor they with me. lol If I am not in the mood and want to leave, I am not inconveniencing a partner, and if I want to hunt until my tonque is hanging out, and my partner does not, then neither of us are inconvenienced.
I do like to go with my grown son. However, since he is employed and I am retired, I get to go more than he. But we just share the hunt experiences in the evening. I hunt the west solo also, and as long as I have a phone, its no different than if we were local.

I hunt alone and with buddys but if i had to choose i would much rather hunt with one buddy every time. He is a VERY good turkey hunter and together we rarely leave the woods without a bird.

alone is fine and sometimes i actually prefer it, just gives me time in the woods to myself but to me hunting alone all the time starts to suck after a while.

When I was younger I always liked hunting alone or with my grandfather because shooting a deer or other animal I may be after meant quite a bit to me...it seemed that I couldn't abide by so much incompetence when hunting with someone else plus it took me out of my game...and I still feel that way at times. When my sons were born and got old enough I started taking them to the woods and it was a challenge getting them to be still or pay attention, etc, but it paid off big later....My youngest son and I now hunt together most of the time and this past season I helped my middle son and also my best friend bag their first bucks. I prefer hunting with my son, Shaun, than anyone and much prefer hunting with a "group in camp" but not necessarily right beside me in the woods. Right now I could use a good turkey hunting buddy because I find turkey hunting a little boring alone and my friends don't turkey hunt....

I used to really enjoy hunting alone, but after accomplishimg most of what I have set out to do in the hunting world, in TN anyway, I now love the company of a friend, or especially my Dad and my two boys!! I let one of these 3 do most of the shooting now and I couldnt be happier, never have been as a matter of fact!!!!!

I like the ride out to the woods with someone. Once I'm there I want to go it alone. I like the challenge and dont want anything messing with me. However, I have better luck on turkeys if I have someone else to set up with.

I agree......I hate hunting alone. I enjoy the company of other people. For those that mentioned having to mess with someone else, I can understand that. But if someone is courteous, they will respect their hunting partner by being on time, keeping up on the communication etc etc.

I hunt a lot of state land because I can't afford a lease right now and I just don't have any private land. I don't always feel safe on the state land.

So I am still looking for someone to hunt with.

I know the feeling of being alone. I have to drag my friends to the woods. I got a son-in-law, that wouldn't know which way to hold a gun. I just don't understand!!!!

I like hunting alone, you are always the shooter and only make half as much noise. I like to hunt with others on occassion, but cherish the alone time in the woods.

I agree....much more fun to hunt with a buddy. Easier to get motivated, too. Can't wait to get my 5 year old l'il girl out for actual hunting. We just go piddle in the woods and plink right now.

I prefer hunting alone, although several times a year I will take someone if they want to go.
The last guy I took was a 46 yr old retired military spec-ops guy. I figured he'd have some woodsmanship skills just from being in the mystical world of 'spec-ops'. Uh, yeah... That was a wrong assumption on my part.
I told him to quit stepping on logs as we crossed them, because sooner or later one would snap, and he would go with it. I told him that while they might not look rotten laying there 2 or 3 feet above the ground, you never know how much decomposition had taken place underneath the bark. About 10 minutes later I heard the snap behind me as he stepped on another one, and of course he broke his leg. It took everything I had to help get him back to the truck.
He started vomiting from the pain, and his leg was major screwed.
I got some ibuprofin down his throat, and beat a path to the hospital as quickly as I could.
And I took my non-hunting friends teenage daughter hunting last year. She'd been practicing in her backyard, and was a good shot. So I go to pick her up at 4am, and she's wearing Precious Perfume by Brittney Spears, and has on all her makeup, and her hair was fixed...like she was going out on the town or something. I just said, "Uh, yeah...okay." I mean, she's a little girl. I didn't want to preach to her or anything and have her start crying, so I just sat her in the blind, and we didn't see anything (probably because of the HUGE scent trail we left). My blind still smells like Brittney Spears...or maybe a prostitute...I'm not sure which...
Come to think of it, I'll just hunt alone from now on...

The ultimate hunting experience for me has been to double on two strutting longbeards with my son.
Granted it is much harder to work with two people, but my son is always the primary shooter. As long as I can get them in range, I don't care who pulls the trigger. I get a bigger thrill out of his excitement over a kill than I do if I kill. He is an adult now but will always be my primary shooter.
