Need experience...
« on: November 20, 2007, 10:27:47 PM »
Hello all,

I am interested in doing some varmint hunting.  This is all new to me, but I realize I need to get more shooting experience outside the range.  My problem is I don't know anyone that hunts in Washington and my roommate teters on getting into hunting.  I am sick of waiting for him to pick up the passion.  I just met somebody at work that is in a similar position as I, and I/we are looking for guidance.  Understanding how difficult testing a new hunting partner can be, if anyone can point us in the right direction, or be willing to take us out, I would greatly appreciate it...

Thanks everyone...

Gary

well I gotta say if you are gonna take to a new hunting pard, varmint hunting is where to start. your season is not limited, your quarry is readily available, and if you screw it up....move a mile and start over. I like to varmint hunt as a primer for my other shooting sports as shots can be any range and the weather is pertty tough at times here in the east.

good luck

You make it sound like the lack of a hunting partner is wat is keeping you from hunting.  Who needs a partner.....get out there and start wacking some vermin, I mean varmits.  Having a partner is overrated by those that feel the need to have other people around them.  If oyu are lucky to find that perfect match u then awesome, but for gosh sskes don't let it deter you from hunting.

I like having a hunting partner that is a good match.  Sometimes people get in the way and don't have the same goals I do.  I've found myself bowhunting alone many years and eating thanksgiving in a camp or motel room by myself more than once...

Don't get me wrong, I hunt, but that is during elk season over in Idaho.  Still don't know a whole lot about this state and am looking to learn.  Makes it easier to have a partner when you are fairly new to hunting, and/or trying to learn where to go.

I need to start looking at maps and trying to learn different areas.  Anyone have a good starting point, or advice on calls or other techniques?

Thanks in advance guys...loving this site.

Hello Again,

I have a friend down south that owns some property and we are planning a trip to see if we can find any coyotes.  He says he hears them quite a bit, but has only seen a couple.  I am due for a trip to see him anyway, so it will be fun to get out.

I don't have any experience in really hunting yotes, ie calling and such.  What calls would you recommend for a newbie.  I really want to learn how to call these animals.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
