I've really had to work up some courage to post, and now I don't know where to begin. It sounds freakish and unbelievable to most people, but since I was a young girl I've wanted to learn how to fish and hunt. Unfortunately, my family (when I was growing up) was horrified at the thought, and so I just read about fishing and hunting. Then I married a man who, while not horrified, was merely not interested in fishing or hunting.
Last year, I turned 50 and decided that I was going to do the things I've always wanted to do. So, I told my husband that I was going to learn to fish, and if he wanted to come along, that would be fine. Well, I've been learning for a year now, and I love it! My husband is growing more enthusiastic about it, and is even talking about buying a fishing boat.
I just turned 51, and I really want to learn to shoot and hunt. Am I too old? Is this something you need to grow up doing? I'm in very good shape, lean and strong. Nearly everyone thinks I'm much younger than I am. And if I'm not too old, how do I begin? Where do I start?
I'm interested in turkey hunting, if that's any help!
I truly would appreciate any advice or direction you could give me.
