    First off welcome to the forum. When it comes to hunting you are never to young to start. Where abouts in OK do you live?

    First of all, welcome to the Oklahoma Hunter forum.

    My dad wasn't into it either. I pretty much learned on my own, as at that time hunting and fishing was kind of frowned on. (70's) Hippies and drugs were the thing.

    I was, and am into reading books, and in my youth along with Boy Scouts is where I learned the ways of the woods, and the history of hunting. I read the great novels like Call of the Wild, etc.

    So, now fast forward to today. Youtube can show somebody just about anything you want to know. Hunters are going out with GoPro video's documenting every facet of their hunt.

    Yet, in my opinion, nothing beats looking at a track in the mud first hand instead of on a computer. You have to get out in the woods, and experience nature.
    Watch how the birds are acting. I shot a doe with my Xbow a few years back and couldn't find it in the shoulder high grass. Backed out and later on saw birds dropping into a site. Made a mental note of the location and walked right up on the doe. I was 3' away from it more than once, but the tall grass didn't let me see it.

    If your hunting a buck and have does in the field, watch them closely. they will spot a potential buck and watch them when you can't even see it.

    Million others around.

    Helllo welcome aboard. I live in Lawton, OK. I have been hunting since I was 6 years-old. I have a friend who didn't start hunting and fishing until he was 45. Now he can't get enough of it. My wife say I am a junkie when it come to hunting. There are a lot of good ole boys here on the forum and if you have any question we will be more welcome to help you. Again welcome to the forum.

    I love to hunt and fish and most of all spending time with my family after I get home from hunting and fishing.

    Welcome Brian, it's never too late to start enjoying hunting and fishing. You've got some good public hunting not too far from you.
    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.
