Bullets?

The only such organization that I am familiar with was the local Fish and Game League in my home town. I'll start by admitting up front that I never did join it because we lived too far from town and Dad couldn't spare the time to drive me in. I did check the place out as much as I could. Membership was reasonably cross-sectioned althouh yes most of the members were older - not necessarily retirees though but probably 40-50 age bracket. They held meetings once a week. Yes, there was definitely a lot of people sitting around telling war stories about the monster buck of '68 and the 25lb walleye that got away. I like listening to those stories...once.

Anyway they would usually try to have a guest speaker brought in. Sometimes it would just be the local RCMP or Fish Cop to go over safety/hunting regs, others would be a rep from DNR to go over the results of aerial moose counts, deer forecasts, fishing reports etc etc.

They had a on-going semi-formal trophy contest for fish, and in season game too. It was really interesting and if I were in your shoes that's where I'd be. Mixed in with the war stories you'll get some good advice, you'll make some friends and may even find someone who would be willing to take you hunting or to the range with them.

I can't answer that...our town was a very small rural town where everything was cheap (because nobody had any money anyway). I think it was something like $40 for the year and maybe 200 mbrs total on the books with around 40-50 at any given "regular" meeting.

Bakersfield probably has more selection and I wouldn't have a clue how much they would be.

Ya cause Bakersfield now has over 300,000 people. And I doubt there would be lots of clubs so they might have tons of members. Also like what activities do they have in your knowledge?

Lever: Once you pass your hunter ED. class
You may be able to help teach hunter ED. In Montana we have jr. instructors. Check with your instructor next month when you take your class.

I think what Gunslinger is saying is that if there isn't hunt clubs available, getting involved through the hunter ed may be a way to meet/work with other hunters....

I just found what I want but I dont think this bullet can fire. Check it out please and tell me if this is just the brass to make the bullet or if this is the bullet ready to fire when I put in my gun.
