Default New hunter in PA

First off, I apologize if this is in the wrong area, I haven't found anywhere for introductions yet.

I am a first time hunter, I just took my hunter education course a couple of weeks ago, and I'm in the process of trying to get the gear needed for my first hunt. I'm new to PA and don't really know anyone here except for the people I work with. Any and all advice, tips, info will be greatly appreciated.

Greetings from Vermont and Welcome to the Club!

Starting involves a lot really but don't let it become overwhelming, take it all one step at a time and you'll find the rewards are well worth the time and efforts you invest.

Don't buy more than the basics to begin with, in the field of hunting it's easy to empty a savings account,, but first thing we need to know is, what are you planning to hunt?
