South Jersey Waterfowl n00b Here

Recently became interested in waterfowl/turkey/small game hunting over the winter.  Didn't get my gun til February and didn't get to take Hunters Ed until March, so I missed out on the waterfowl seasons.  Been reading up, watching videos, etc. like crazy, and can't wait to get out there.  Been in the turkey woods a lot.  Nothing yet, but I'm determined...

Anyway, waterfowl is what interests me most, and I'm already starting to think about the upcoming September Canada Goose season.  I was practicing on clay pigeons a lot before the lockdown, and I'll be back out there regularly as soon as things open back up.  What else does a new guy need to do to properly get prepared?  I don't know anyone who hunts, so unfortunately I don't have anyone to show me the ropes.  Any pointers are greatly appreciated.  Hell, I'd love to join in on some hunts this fall if anyone is willing to mentor a 30 year old who's never done it before. You'd receive beer and free decoy/blind/etc. set-up labor in return! 

Thanks in advance.  Cheers.

Welcome to the site Mr. Mink.  

I'm on the opposite end of the state from you so I'm no help whatsoever.  Fortunately we have a lot of members down your way that are into waterfowl.  Best of luck with your journey.
