if the laws in your state are the same as in mine, you can not hunt by yourself. so that option is out. if you are meture for you age, than you more than likely have the respect of your dad. i would ask him to sit down with you for a talk. then ask him why it is he does not want to take you? he may have a spacfic consern about you hunting that need to be adressed. then you will know what needs to be fixed, before he will take you. it may just be that he does not want to drag himself out of bed at 4:30am on his day off from work. in that case if you have and unkle that will take you you could sugesst that. or if he has a friend he trust with your safty that he ask that friend to take you.
