For adults who were not brought up around hunting, getting started in the field can seem daunting. After all, if a would-be hunter does not know anybody who can take them hunting, how are they going to find out more about it?
Fortunately, getting started in hunting is actually a lot easier than many people think. Sad to say, hunting is on a slight decline in the US, and so those who love it are keen to recruit as many new hunters as they can.

Young Liberals get an “F” for gun control research
There’s an old political observation that suggests idealistic students vote NDP, empire-building young adults vote Liberal, and middle-age wisdom creates Conservatives.
The ludicrous motion hatched by Young Liberals of Canada to bring Australian-style gun bans to Canada reveals that idealism has trumped reality within their ranks.
