I've been wanting to learn to hunt and dress small game for a few years now (look how old my account is!) but having not grown up a hunter, it's been easy to put it off. I come by the forums every now and again, and see all the great stuff you guys/gals are doing but always have an excuse... This year I wanted to stop giving myself excuses so I went out and got my Hunter education squared away and a .22lr/20gauge over-under now lurks in the safe. What I need now is someone willing to show me the ropes - I could read a book or watch some online tutorials, but learning in person is far better. I'd hate to strike out on my lonesome and bag some squirrels only to bugger them up and waste the meat. Are there any places that you know of recommend that do this sort of thing - farms/hunting clubs? Anyone willing to teach me? I recall a thread some years ago that was kind of an open invite/family event... Something like that would be great too - I'm starting at the same place as a lot of the 8 year olds learning anyway. Realize its a bit of an odd request - happy to meet/speak or even buy you a dinner to talk it over. I'm in the StL area, but willing to drive ~3 hours to hunt (less obviously if you wanted to meet in person first).
