Hey Ya'll. I'm in my late 30's and I want to start hunting. I'm thinking about starting with small game, and moving up from there. Is there anything I need to know? Any things that I absolutely MUST do or absolutely CANT do? I have a .22 LR, a .410 bore and I'm looking to get a .12 GA for Christmas. Words of advice?

Small game is the best way to start. Practice target shooting the 22. When you are good enough to hit a squierrel in the head consistantly. You are good enough to start deer hunting.

Welcome to the forum ! My name is Scott too \:\) I started out hunting rabbits , pheasants and squirrels in Mi. with a 12 ga. shotgun .
Small game hunting is fun , and a relaxing way to get started hunting . I would suggest going along with an experienced mentor/hunter .

Would it be strange for me to hunt rabbits without a dog? Because I see a lot of rabbits around. And I dont need a dog to see them. So it stands to reason that I wouldnt need a dog to hunt them. But every time I look up rabbit hunting online, it ALWAYS involves a trained hunting dog. Opinions? Comments?

I used to kick brushpiles and jumpshoot them before I got beagles .

Good Luck. If you need any help with anything let me know. DO you have somewhere to hunt?
