Aspiring Hunter in Philly

Hi everyone,

Great forum you've got going on here. I'm a Philadelphia resident into fishing who is looking to get into hunting. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction to find a mentor in my area? I've tried friends of friends etc to no avail. Ideally I'd like to go for some whitetail but am open to any mentorship on big or small game hunting.

Thanks!

Welcome to the site! I know there's a club in Holmesburg that's pretty good.

We're all singing pretty much the same tune, that being locate a hunting/fishing club being your best way of getting started. I noticed you haven't hunted before, so you will also need to take a Hunter Education Course before you can get the lisence. Welcome to HPA! The answers to those future questions are right here!
