Default New to hunting

Hey I'm new to hunting and was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of any useful links. I would like to go deer hunting this fall on my fathers land in the mountains of North Carolina. Thanks for the help

So much to be learned! This site is definitely a good place to ask questions. Outdoor Life and Field and Stream are good outdoor magazines to read, there's just so many places to look, so many things to learn. Whatever you want, it's out there!

Pick anything that has deer hunting, mags, books and videos. Go to a local hunting store and talk with some of "old-timers" about hunting and woodsmanship. It will send you down the right path. Learn how track a wound deer, get someone to show you the basics, it will take time and practice to know what too look for. That a few rambling thought of someone that was raised up hunting, fishing and trapping.

I agree, this is a great place to start to learn what you can from experienced hunters. Experience in the woods is one of the best ways you will learn, but it is a great idea to do some research as well and find good material.

A place i found a nice book with some great tips and techniques was here. I learned some nice information and tips from the book that is offered there. It's also nice to watch shows on tv if you have cable or satellite. Sportsman Channel, and Outdoor Channel have some really great shows that are good to learn from the pros.

Hope this helps, and good luck this season!

Wow..., glad to see that you want to learn. Not to mention that you have asked for assistance. Obviously you "Want" to learn, thats the best way to start. Get magazines, watch DVD's, Hunting shows on TV, read here on Hunting.net, ask questions, spend mass quantities of time in the deer woods, go to your states DNR (Department of Natural Resources) website, go to your local bow shops and most importantly...PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE...SHOOT SHOOT SHOOT! Good luck to you!

Two things I've learned;

You can't shoot them from your couch; and you have to see them before they see you !

Now, ask away....................................
