Take Someone Hunting

Encourage others who are unfamiliar to hunting to share in the rewards of your efforts; complete the hunting experience by taking them hunting! 

If you're an experienced hunter, you taking new people hunting is more important than ever for our hunting heritage and for conserving wildlife—now and in the future.   Hunting licenses and fees pay for state wildlife programs!

If you’re new to hunting, going with an experienced hunter that you know is invaluable to help you get started and develop your hunting skills.   It’s also safer to hunt with others, and more enjoyable to most hunters. One way to network with deer hunters is to join a local branch of the Quality Deer Management Association, whose purpose is to promote deer conservation and ethical hunting.
