Hello everyone! New to the sport.

Hello everyone. I am 39 and live on the Monroeville/Murrysville line. I once went hunting when I was 13. It was deer season. I took my 12g and sat in the frozen woods for hours and hours on end. That was the end of my hunting career. Now being older I have been bitten by the bug. About a month ago I really wanted to push myself with another discipline. I currently take Taekwondo classes. So, for the last month I have been emersing myself in everything I can read, watch ,and ask about archery. I haven't purchased my bow yet, but I will be purchasing a crossbow. Leaning toward recurve at the moment. I also am trying to learn how to figure out where to hunt, whether it is private, public, getting permission or not having to. This has become the hardest part to take in yet, as in the public hunting lands. The maps I've been finding sometimes help, sometimes don't. I really don't have any hunting friends, and archers at that. Hopefully I can meet some guys who can help me along the way. Thank you for allowing me to join. I'm a sponge right now, soaking up all the info I can.

Welcome to HPA. Good luck,lots of deer in your area. Maybe join one of the sportsman's clubs in that area and get to know some people who hunt. Eventually you will find out some places to hunt.

Agree with huntr, a Sportsman`s Club would be a good place to start, Pitcairn-Monroeville off Rt48 in North Versailles or maybe Crowfoot in Murrysville are are pretty close to you....And welcome to HPA as well...

If you don`t stand behind our Troops,
Please feel free to stand in front of them....

I'll third the joining of a club. Nothing like the personal contact with folks who can help get you started, and perhaps even get you out on a hunt. Good luck and welcome to the addiction.
