looking for a hunting/outdoors partner
« on: July 31, 2018, 06:05:03 PM »
here is the sales pitch.... that ended up sounding like a dating profile...

I am 28, married, live near Federal way, usually hunt gmu 340/342, have a good job with plenty of vacation time, and drink occasionally

i am looking for somebody or maybe a group of people of similar age with common intrests to spend time with in and out of the field. I have several recurves, shotguns, rifles, backpacks, etc... so if you want to hunt or fish and dont have the gear, i got it. 

i am not really looking for someone brand new with no experience, but if thats the case, and we get along thats cool.

I have been hunting and fishing all my life. I have not yet killed a deer, elk or bear. I have had shots and plenty of opportunity, just have not connected. I mostly hunt traditional archery. i am not opposed to the other ways.

Outdoor activites include hiking, camping, fishing, coyote, archery elk, archery deer, grouse, quail, turkey.

I have a yellow lab for bird hunting, a small aluminum boat for fishing, and a 4x4 truck.
I am getting into long range shooting and reload my own bullets.

basically i like the outdoors and my wife doesn't like me hunting on my own, so i am looking for a partner.

I'm not near you but welcome to the forum. I'm also older than dirt. Good luck finding a partner.  :tup:

Moved from Ellensburg to the Vancouver area this spring, and my huntin and fishin partner moved back home to Montana (he made the better decision! 🙂) which meant  I hunted alone this year.  We have similar experience and are similar in age(47).  I too am an Adult Onset Hunter.  I am a member of BHA and am an ardent supporter of our Public Lands.  If that sounds like it lines up with your values, shoot me a PM.  Boy that sounds like a Dating Profile🤣

Instagram, Facebook? Without these on your dating profile, your automatically assumed a serial killer. At least thatís what the single ladies say.

It is funny how much all of this is like a dating profile  :chuckle: . We moved here Sept. 2017. Originally from central MO I grew up small game hunting and whitetail hunting. I am not good sitting all day though. I have harvested many deer over the years with a compound and rifle. I like the idea and am working on gearing up for backpack style hunting. I am married with two kids. 35yo My wife and oldest daughter hunted in Missouri. Here, they are not interested in backpacking miles into the wilderness to sleep on the ground. I should state I know that is not the only way to hunt here. I have a newly added close friend that likes to hike with me. He is very interested in hunting with me anytime I go. He is just not interested in harvesting his own animals. I have thought of posting on here the question/invitation of getting together over coffee. In Florida I belonged to a fishing group. Once a month they met up for breakfast at this little coffee shop. It was a chance to talk to members, share stories, and normally get invited or invite a fishing trip. Just a idea.

LMAO This is great. I was just telling my wife about a episode of HUSHIN on youtube where the bearded guy flys to like New Mexico I think to meet up with the tall skinny guy. It was their first time meeting in person. Both of their wifes where worried they were meeting a serial killer. lol
