Hey everyone just thought I would say hi, I'm new to the site and new to hunting in general. I have been shooting rifles for the last 25 years and I have never gone hunting before. After several years of thinking about it I've decided to finally take it up as I love the taste of wild game meat and I have in the last few years moved out to eastern Oregon, initially out by John Day now I'm in La Grande.
This year I was late and did not get in on the draw for a deer tag out here so I was going to pick up a second season elk tag to at least get me out and started this year. I know the chances of getting something would be slim compared to those that have been preparing already but at least I would get out there and prepare more next year.
Sadly all those in my family that hunted are to old or incapable to go out hunting anymore so I will basically be flying solo on this. I'm hoping that at some point I can find someone local to give me advice and possibly even go hunting with.
Anyway I'm glad to be part of the site and I hope to learn a lot while I'm here.
