    Hey everyone.

    I have always wanted to get my hunters license and try my hand at providing myself and loved ones with our own meat, but I have never gathered the gumption to actually do it.

    Does anyone in Nor Cal hunt deer that wouldn't mind sharing some insight/advice? Perhaps allow me to tag along on a hunt a couple of times? My ex stepfather was a hunter and he was always bringing home some tasty thing or another. The one time he did bag a deer he let me skin it and it was SOO fascinating.

    Any resources y'all have would be much appreciated too [​IMG] I don't know much about the process of acquiring a license or how a successful hunt should be orchestrated.

    In California, you have to have a Hunter's Safety certificate to get your first hunting license. This is regulated by the Department of Fish and Game, and here's their website about licensing and education. This is a good place to start, and you may even meet someone willing to do some mentoring in your area.
