So now 35 years old and want to get into it. I am going this year in northern va. And looking for some advice any and all advice is welcome. I am using a .300 savage model 99E. I'm hunting in a heavily wooded area with a few small clearings. Any advice is much appreciated.

Hello and welcome from Ohio and another Savage 99 user. I have a 300 savage also the EG model. We should have someone in your area to help on suggestions for first time hunting there.
