Default hello all

I am a noob to this forum. I wanted to take am minute and say hi before I start picking your brains about hunting. my name is Jeff and I am in Central Virginia. If anyone out there is local to my neck of the woods, definitely pm me.

My biggest problem at the moment is that I have no friends that hunt. Our state has implemented the "Hunters Apprentice" program that encourages people to get a short term (2 year) learners license that is kind of like having a drivers learners permit. I tell all my friends that they could get it and come with me, but so far, only one person has gone with me. I have been hunting for 4 years now and have only ever shot at squirrels. Mainly, I hope to meet up with folks that can help me learn better hunting skills and possibly take me out with them for some real hunting experience.

I am glad to have found this forum and I hope to learn and share what I learn with the community as I go.

Kind regards to you all.
