I had my dad for inspiration because I grew up watching him hunt but we moved overseas right around the time when he would have started taking me, so I didn't grow up doing it and kind of forgot about it for a long time. When I was in my early 30s I took a job that required a move to a new place where I didn't know anybody and for some reason I decided hunting would be a good thing to try out even if I never made any friends there. Most of what I know came from reading and asking questions on forums and then going out and trying what I learned. There's so much information on forums and youtube and more recently facebook groups, and even though not all of it is solid I think you can generally wade through the BS easily enough. I'm certain I'm at a huge disadvantage to someone that grew up doing it and potentially had 20 seasons in before I even started, but I'm not in a hurry, I just enjoy the process and the successes as they come.
