Hi - Looking to get into hunting more and maybe even make some friends (mentors)

Hi - As the title states, I am looking to get into hunting more. As a young boy I used to go out and sit in the tree stand with my Dad, but by the time I came of age to hunt, he stopped going out and I never pursued hunting back then.

Since then my Dad has retired and starting pheasant hunting again but has also been battling some health issues. Long story short, I have really become interested in hunting and truly love just seating peacefully in the woods. The one main issue I have is that is really all I have been doing is sitting and haven't had much success this year with small game.

My goal of joining this forum is to increase my knowledge and maybe even find a hunting buddy or mentor that would be willing to teach me a few things. I live in Montgomery County but am willing to travel a bit since there seems to be limited land to hunt around me. I have been to Evansburg and also on some private land in Berks for squirrel but have not had any luck. I also would love to progress into Turkey and Deer hunting etc.

I am still trying to go out as much as I can, so if anyone is interested, let me know.

Also just figured I should say Thanks in advance for all of the great information on this site!
