    Novice looking for hunting buddy/mentor

    I'm a very new hunter in the Okanagan area but willing to travel. I'm looking for a hunting partner or partners for this fall hunting season.

    I am a university student in his early 20s. If you're looking for company on hunting trips or would like to help a newbie learn the ropes (or know anyone who would) please message me.

    I am happy to contribute gas money/bullets/dollar for trouble.

    If you're at UBCO there's a BHA chapter with folks that can help you right at the university. I can put you in touch with them if you PM me.

    Unfortunately myself and hunting buddy head out for four weeks of chasing moose tomorrow, otherwise we are pretty local.. keep in touch, I should have a spare weekend or two during any buck season, or if you get help from someone else don't hesitate to hit us up for some spring bear action.. my favorite !

    What do you mean "dollar for trouble?"

    Pretty cut and dry . As mentioned gas money , bullets , food, gear usage . The list is endless. I'm sure some would jump on that as "illegal guiding" or some dumb shit . And besides I'm sure when somebody takes him out it will most likely be probono except for the obvious

    If it was cut and dry, the question wouldn't have been asked. Thanks for your interpretation of what the OP was getting at. Personally, I don't find any part of hunting troublesome.

    I'm actually in that club! they haven't been too active on their facebook/instagram pages, which is why I'm looking for folks here. ITs kina hard to network with them because new posts seem to directly to the bottom, beneath stickied official posts.

    I just mean to indicate that I don't expect a free ride. I'm not asking for commercial guiding services or anything like that., I intend to "chip in" if someone takes me out with thier truck/boat/atv etc., just as any decent person would.
