I just recently got into hunting (I'm 42). By recently got into, I mean, I just got a hunting license and I have a few friends wanting to take me out this season for what will be my first go at it. I figure I will cut my teeth on small game, like rabbit and squirrel, and hopefully next season will go after a deer with a muzzleloader. No one in my family hunts. No one in my family was even into guns, and it was through friends, that I found probably the most supportive and eager to help, group of people out there. Long story short, it is that attitude that I also found here, reading through many of these posts, that excites me to get out there and (hopefully) succeed at this. I think this attitude, and spreading the attitude, is what is going to further the sport and keep it going.
