Hello all. im a newbie to the site. This is my first year hunting on my own. I havent done any hunting for the past couple years. When i did go out i was with my dad and he shot a moose. I have shot one deer in my life and that was back in 2001. But even then my dad took care of the whole thing. gutting/cleaning. So when i get another it will definetly be an experience. I just bought my first firearms this year too. I bought a savage 30-06 and a mossberg 500 pump action 12 gauge shotgun. Im really hoping to get a deer this year. ive been out a bunch of times and havent even seen a deer yet. I have been able to get one grouse though. I hope that i will beable to learn from this site and make some new friends.
