Default Novice Hunter

I couldn't edit the above Post so I'm going to type a new one.

Hey everybody. I'm Myles.I'm 23 years old and i'm from Leduc. I've just starting to hunting this past fall and i'm looking to find some new hunting partners. I'm looking to get out with some experienced hunters this year, even if it's to tag along and just be shown the ropes. I'm looking to expand my skills this year. Learn more about the animals that i'd be hunting, learn about the ways to process the meat and store it, things I need to go on long hunts and basically how to hunt. I'm looking to become a more knowledgeable hunter and fast. I have only rifle hunted and own my own 30_06 Browning A-bolt. I will soon be buying a shotgun for hunting birds. Maybe I can get a few suggestions. I'm looking to learn/hunt moose, elk, deer, cougar, pheasant(especially) and geese. I'm not up for drinking/drugs while out on a hunt. So if you can help a guy out and show him the ropes it would be appreciated.

Default archery elk and moose hunting partner

Hi: I am 58 years old and physically fit. I have been hunting with a bow for over 30 years. I have taken elk, moose, whitetail, caribou and black bear. My regular hunting partners have one by one given up on bow hunting because of age issues. I am looking for a hunting partner for this fall. I like to hunt elk for 5-7 days in early September and moose for about the same time in early October. I have a good hunting area northwest of Edmonton. I have considerable experiece in calling elk and moose. I have a camp based on a camperized construction trailer including a wood stove. The camp is basically completely provisioned and all that is required to go is groceries. I am a nonsmoker and basically a non drinker. I looking for someone with their own truck and quad. Experience is not really necessary but I would want who ever I go with to be physically fit enough to walk 2-3 kilometers and lift a hind quarter and not be intimidated being alone for periods of time in the bush. Let me know if you are interested and we will talk on the phone to see if we are compatable.

Default Hunting Mentor

Hello all, I have been hunting for the last 5 years and I LOVE IT. I have my own bow and I will soon have my own muzzle loader. I want to buy a shotgun next. I am looking for a hunting partner that can share their knowledge and time. Over the last 5 years I have had a few friends show me lots however they are more advanced than I am. I am not confident to venture out on my own just yet. I 999 all my tags this year so all I can do now is white deer around Edmonton. Please let me now if you would like to be a hunting Mentor!

Default Hunting partner.

Hi my name is Jason. I'm 30 yrs old. I live in Edmonton. I've been hunting since I was 12 with rifle. I've taken Many deer a couple moose and one black bear. 3 yrs ago I picked up the bow. I have a mission X5 and am proficiant with it out to 50 yds. I can hit a foam golf ball at 40 yds 3 of 4 times. I also have a lock on tree stand, and a simple one man ground blind. My in laws have a farm out by Wabamun lake with 160 acres mostly alfala with a fairly large wooded area in the middle. However they allow a few of the neighbors to drive their quads around through the trails in the woods so the deer are always very skittish. none of the guys I rifle hunt with, around Nojack area are archery hunters and I'm tired of hunting deer that are pushed around all year long. Due to my job I'm only able to hunt weekends during archery season. (might be able to take an extended weekend) I 999'd all my draws this year as I had a bull moose and mule deer buck draws last year and cow elk the year before. so this year I'll be hunting Whities. anyone looking for a partner for archery hunting this season? shoot me a message j.leclairknives@hotmail.ca

Jim here. I currently live in Fort McMurray, but I am origianlly from B.C. I have spent all my life hunting, fishing and camping. I have a truck and all the gear I need, just need someone to go with who knows where to go. I got drawn for bull moose in the Wandering River area this year so I am sure I will be spending some time camping there. I would love to go after some mallards this year as I only got out once last year with no success. Anyone wanting to car pool or meet up somewhere between Fort McMurray and Edmonton send me a PM.

Hello
I'm Adam, 36 yr old guy in Calgary. I've been hunting quite a few yrs for Whiitetail, but just got into Bow hunting this year, going out to practise today actually. I'm hoping on getting out in the early season for Elk and Moose with the bow. I've hunted them for a few yrs now with the rifle, love to take one with the sharpstick.

give me a write if ya'd like to head out in early Sept, I'd love to head out back in the foothills for some Elk with the Bow. Also thinking of some Moose hunting later in Sept. in the gen season with the Bow.

We are looking for 1-3 guys physically fit (between 25-35, like us) who are dedicated enthusiastic hunters to join our group. our group currently consists of fathers/sons but the dads are too far over the hill and can no longer hunt aggressively anymore.
I know there is always a lot of talk out there about how awesome some guys think they are, we are not the best but we have valuable experience, amazing hunting/shooting skills, and the animals to prove it!
we are farmers ourselves so we have ties with other farmers as well, so our hunting land base is massive.
we are willing to train you to hunt if you don't have the skills. we hunt everything except mtn goats and cats. someone with sheep skills would be awesome, as we have never hunted them, but would like to. (we mainly focus on Elk, Moose, Deer, Geese, Coyotes). we have all our own processing equipment so all our meat is clean, cut, and wrapped to a high standard with no cost, but you have to be willing to help out.

we drink socially, no drugs, and are looking for someone like minded, as we like to joke around a lot and make hunting an awesome experience! no guides or guys that can't keep a secret allowed.

send me a PM if you're game!

Sill looking for One more guy...

Default Antlered Moose

Drawn in WMU 531 - no rifle, no automobile and would rely heavy on partner with loads of experience. Prepare to share cost and off course you could keep my kill and trophy, as long as I can fire the shot and have a picture. My wife will probably tag along, so at least your guaranteed a prepared meal.

Wow this sounds like a dating site lol. I live in Smith, just south of Slave Lake. Ive been guiding almost ten years now, this year im planning on doing lots of hunting myself and little to no working. I hunt primarily with my bow but Ive been known to sneak the thunderstick out from time to time.

As much as I like introducing new hunters to the sport, Im looking for another experienced hunter to team up on moose and elk. I have excellent spots for both close to home. Im lookin for a guy who can handle a full day of walking, and is able to call both Elk and Moose well. Fine if yer from the city, ive got room for you to stay at my place.

Opening day is comin quick.... 2 weeks

DISGUSTING, get off this site before you're tossed out. You obviously have no idea what you're talking about.
