1st yes Username is my handle I also use it on Tradbow.com....I AM NOT A TROLL. at least not like that. I am moving to Palmdale from Minnesota this month for work. I am not asking for help moving. I do need a mentor to the area for hunting. I have researched the NF's out there. Not looking for honey holes and I do have the flexibility to drive to a few hours to hunt. I have a wife and four small children so anytime I can cut out of the learning process from a mentor is GREATLY appreciated. I am a decent recurve shooter so if anyone wants to trade for lessons or they just feel sorry please PM me. Thank you!
Good luck in Cali. Lived here for decades and am going to scout/hunt(?) a new (Norcal)area this weekend . Suggest you do some 3-D shoots and maybe meet up with folks in person that way. IMO plan on learning what's what the old fashioned way - there are way too many hunters chasing WAAY too little resource. Thank the libs for a lot of that.
Thanks williamtell! 3D shoots worked great in the past. Looks like I will be doing the old fashion way. Squeezing in a Spring Wyoming bear hunt on my way out with Wyoming's Finest Outfitter. It will be real early but I kind of figured it could be my best chance at harvesting for a while.
Conejo Valley Archers are having an all Traditional 3D shoot this weekend, May 3-4. Attend. I'm sure you'll meet someone to show you the way. I'll be there and we're going on a pig hunt for Memorial Weekend to Ft. Hunter Ligget.
Have you found someone or somewhere to hunt?
Sent you a PM TradTony, in California now and will be out scouting wednesday Los Padres NF
Username,hope you are getting some good info.so far.The best I can tell you is drive way out in the National forest,any of them,and hike as far back as you can.Most places I ve done this I ve started seeing deer or sign or both.Eventually you will get a buck.
