I've had good hunting buddies and one not so good. Until my Sons were old enough I hunted alone and got to the point where I preferred it. Now that the Boys are really into the entire hunting process hunting together is a real joy. I did, however, kill my biggest whitetail this past year when I was alone.

There is a difference in.... hunting with someone and having someone in your deer camp or even at your cabin while you turkey or small game hunt. I prefer to hunt with my sons who know how to hunt or hunt alone.

I would probably quit hunting if I didn't have the camaraderie of my sons and family to share the experience with...and now my grandsons are coming of age.

You guys like pseshooter could prosper by finding an experienced older hunter to share you hunts with...Some of these guys are just wishing they could get in the woods but maybe they can't drive a car or maybe they need help getting to their lucky spot....People always talk about "take a kid hunting"...I believe it works also in "take an oldster hunting"...

Taking a kid is teaching...taking a senior is learning

Hmm, I'm going by the Senior Citizens Center tomorrow and see if I can find someone older than me to take. Maybe I can learn to play bridge. \:\)

Hunting with a good partner is priceless. Hunting with a bad one is not. I feel as though I just don't have time to train anyone again.

And to just think, I enjoy sharing the woods with anyone who would put up with me. Train someone to be a partner? Sorry, bw, but I dont get it. I hunted a number of hunts last year with a potential new "partner." It was my nephew who took up deer hunting for the first time. It was an absolute pleasure seeing the excitement in his eyes and voice as he would describe the experiences after the hunt. I was able to share some information gained during 30+ years of hunting. IMO, I was helping him with being a better hunter, not a better "partner."

Apples and oranges Encore and my hand hurts to bad to type enough to explain it. Big difference. A partner is far more than just a better hunter or a young hunter or a first time hunter.

bw, I understand what a partner is and what constitutes a good partner. What I dont understand is why you feel that you must "train" someone to be your partner. Sorry your hand doesn't allow you to explain yourself better. And I'm not trying to be a smarta**, just trying to understand your position. Thanks

If I had nobody to hunt with and had to hunt alone all the time, I would definately never go again.

I hunt alone most of the time but only because my cousin can only get free every now and then. I know I wouldn't like a big hunting club with a lot of strangers but on the opposite end of the spectrum, I wouldn't like it at all if I was always going to hunt alone. Killing a nice buck with nobody there is a hollow experience. You get some pictures and a mount. Sharing the common experience is what it's all about.

Regarding defining a perfect hunting partner, I would say you have found that person when you'd just as soon see them shoot the big buck as yourself.
