Hi every one. Been looking at this site for a while and just decided to join up. I'm interested in finding a hunting mentor in the Redding area. I'm 33, married, 2 kids, and a full time job. I've had my hunting license for the last 2 years but have yet to kill anything. I picked up a bow 2 years ago and shoot a few times per week. Archery b zone opens next month so that's my plan to start with. Also have a .22 pellet gun, AR, 22lr rifles, and an M44. (still Need to get a shotgun) I'm in shape and have no problem hiking in and packing out. I'm up for just about anything, rabbits and squirrels to pig and deer. A quick trip to WY for antalope? I've fished my whole life, mostly saltwater, now I want to fill the freezer with some mammal. Thanks for the help.

Welcome. Since you live in the Redding area you are a little further north than I normally hunt and I hunt mostly weekdays anymore. Have you been applying for deer hunts in the drawing? You live close enough to some really good X zones to do a lot of scouting and B as well as C zones can be good once you learn the areas. X zone archery is a little easier to get than rifle season tags.
Where do you fish now? Not much salt water action near Redding. LOL

Born and raised in San Diego, moved up about 5 years ago. I just got back from an overnight off shore trip down there. The coast is about 2.5 hr drive and I try to hit it at least once a year for rockfish. If I fish around here I'll do Shasta or whiskey town. There is some really good trout water and I picked up the fly rod a few years ago. But back to hunting, yes I've seen some great bucks in the off season in C zones. A few in the B zones. Just not sure how to close the deal during the season. Planing on going scouting in a few weeks. I haven't done any drawings yet.
