Getting into bow hunting

#1 Post by newbieaj » Thu Mar 14, 2019 7:19 pm

Hi guys I am new to all of this and was wondering how you get into hunting.

I watched a you tube episode on Joe Rojan with Adam GreenTree and was instantly hooked on getting into bow hunting.

I also watch meat eater with Steven rinella and Love the show it makes me want to learn more about bow hunting but I have no friends in this area that bow hunt.

Are there courses out there or do people invite people to each other’s property I guess like a guide to learn?

What area do you live in? The best way to get started is to find a club close to you and start shooting regularly there, it’s a great way to make connections and network with other bow hunters.
The best trophies I can hope to acquire as a husband, father, friend or hunter are MEMORIES!

I second the clubs angle mate. They'll get you set up with an intro course. You'll also meet people who share the passion and get exposed to different ideas about equipment etc so you can make up your own mind.

Hope it goes well!

Oh I can also recommend a fella on youtube called Clay Hayes if you want to see some neat trad bow hunting vids.
