I agree don't let them discourage you from going to that club. I'm sure not all the members would give you that cold shoulder feeling. I also agree that we need more women and youth into hunting, may be it deer, turkey, hog, dove, or what ever hunting their into. And even though in this time we still have and will probably alway will have people that just think they are better over others over their own ignorance.
Well feel welcome here, and I hope you stick it out at the club, never know you might just be running the show over there one day.
