Do any kind of hunting you can (predator, rabbit, raccoon, gopher/prairie dogs, duck, goose, pheasant) to work with a mentor. Even if you do not carry a firearm to hunt, just being with a mentor while he hunts can teach you a lot. Be sure to follow all game laws, don't pretend to know something you do not and treat the wildlife, land and landowners with respect.
My suggestions also.........
