    New hunter looking for hunting friends

    Hey everyone, I am 40, from Livingston, Essex County, and moved from Europe to the states three years ago (hunting over there is kind of a no go). I've got my bowhunting license for this season, but as I am new to hunting, I am kind of struggling how to start. Therefore I figured it'd be nice to make hunting friends who are experienced. And no, I am not looking to take away someone's spot or meat or whatever, the sole purpose of this post is to meet people I can learn from and that share the passion for the outdoors and hunting. I am thankful for any advice. Many thanks and stay safe.

    One way to meet other bow hunters is to shoot at a local indoor range. Down here in So. Ocean County, the indoor range at Shooters is a good place to meet people. Check-out your area for a range...just one idea.

    There are also several NJ based sportsmans organizations that you can get involved in and meet people......United Bowhunters of NJ and NJ Federation of Sportsmen are two that I am familiar with....... Lincoln Park Archers, WA-XO-BE Archery and WO-PE-NA Archery are several other bow organizations and clubs available to get involved with..... I don't know much about them and maybe some others from this site can be of more assistance with those...
