I grew up without a father.I started trapping when I was 12,and bought my first gun when I was 14.I learned(and I'm learning every day)what I know by reading alot of books,and paying attention to nature.

Try a google search for hunting and/or outdoor clubs in Denver. Also visit some of the more prominent tackle/sporting goods stores. Many have a bulletin board for local clubs etc, or if nothing else their staff should be able to point you in the right direction.

Cheers.
