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.
