    Good channel, hey bro I just stumbled upon your channel and really appreciate it. I have been always fascinated with hunting but never went forward to it, I’m 40 years and I feel better now than never, I will be purchasing my first bow as soon as I return to the states I’m currently deployed. I really appreciate your channel and keep producing more videos for us newbies and so forth thank you.

    I am a new hunter and I found this a good starting point and I like how you discussed the motives behind hunting. I just bought my first rifle a 308 and am looking forward to going on my first hunt. I hope that it’s something my family will want to get involved in as well, so we can share the outdoors and some good game meat.

    The fact you don’t have more subs is kinda outrageous lol



  9. Ryan Smith on July 9, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    Just found you and I already love your videos. Just moved to AZ and I come from a family with no one hunting so I’m trying to learn as I go. Just built my first rifle and want to get into it. Your videos are super helpful so thank you and keep up the great work!

    Boring! Very informative, nice video quality, great audio, good transitions between wildlife and speaking, entertaining topic, but needs more energy to engage their audience

    Although I am born in the city, and my dad would take us to fishing during weekend when I was a kid. I would still like to start hunting or since I liked to photograph wildlife it may be a similar principle. Theodore Roosevelt said "the qualities of a good soldier are, in the large part, the qualities that make a good hunter." I am still lacking in experience, but I am willing to go out and understand what effort means to me. I am glad to recieve these advices from you.

    Fellow New Mexican here, I’ve been going with friends on a couple of their hunting trips and want to put in for a few hunts next year. What is your favorite area to hunt?



  14. bill fisher on July 9, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    I went 18 years without a buck deer tag. There were 4 of us putting in and no one drew for 18 years here in NM



  15. MotoDave on July 9, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    Thanks for the video. For sure going to start hunting here in New Mexico.



  16. Fixedgeardisciple on July 9, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    Great video. Thanks for posting. I’m looking to start bow hunting in Florida, and your video was a very good place to start



  17. SP Flxps on July 9, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    How isn’t ur channel not popular



  18. FastSlothVideos on July 9, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    First hunt should be this year… Also first year with a bow.. if anyone wants to help me out lemme know lol



  19. Anony Mouse on July 9, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    Im 17. Live in Georgia. Just moved to the states last year. Learnt some basic archery and rifle handling. But I want to actually learn how to hunt with a guide or something but I don’t have the money to afford one. Or my own gear yet…



  20. SlickStretch on July 9, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    I wonder how well he would shoot with a simple long bow.



  21. Spencer Black on July 9, 2021 at 8:50 pm

    Thanks for Videos like this and being humble and informative. If you’re ever in Washington state message me, we will have a cold beer waiting for you!



  22. Henry Culvyhouse on July 9, 2021 at 8:50 pm

    Holy crap, as a WV boy I had no idea lottery systems were a thing. We have lotteries for special hunts in municipalities, but other than that, if you have a tag and your license is legal, it’s a go.



  23. Rolando Arias on July 9, 2021 at 8:51 pm

    Live in Alaska too bad idk how to hunt



  24. Dan O Qam Yasharahla on July 9, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    I’ve never hunt before, I learned how to dress a deer and I’m not afraid of field dressing a kill, the only thing I’m afraid of when starting is picking the right location. In Ohio, we have tons and tons of Public hunting locations! I want a place closer to home 30min drive rather than an hour or two away.



  25. transsib on July 9, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    Great video, like the other poster I am also wondering why your channel is not more popular – I just subscribed. I would love to see a video of how you actually went on your first hunt: Did you just go by yourself? Go with an outfitter? Found somebody through a forum? Go with a buddy? I think there are many people, like me, who are interested in hunting but who don’t know anybody who would show them the ropes.



  26. Dalilah Rodriguez on July 9, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    Thanks I got my license today I am in central coast California. I have no clue other than I want to learn. It’s hard to find info of even where to hunt. Pigs are year round but the wording on my local spot is you have to hunt them during deer season. I have to learn I should purchase a go pro if I could afford and try to film my failures to teach others. Good info I want to absorb much more.



  27. Leander Sämann on July 9, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Great video! I started hunting with a friend of mine. Just went in a hunt with him once and I immediately liked it. Would you recommend taking a camera with you when you’re not the one Shooting?



  28. Ivan A. Echevarria on July 9, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    Hey mi amigo,my name is Ivan and I am from Puerto Rico,moved to Florida last year in February and I started to buy hunting gear little by little and been out in some public land mostly scouting but, I haven’t kill a deer yet.It’s hard for me here been a Latino and try to become a hunter cus nobody help you or give you tips but, I will never give up,thank you for your video it was very helpful.



  29. McFlucky on July 9, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    Lmao I live in Kansas, which is ranked 49th/50 in public land percentage. The only state with less public land is Rhode Island



  30. samuelgamer lambo on July 9, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    I live in California Los Angeles



  31. Jon Ahlness on July 9, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    Great video. Congratulations on getting into hunting without the mentoring of a parent or grandparent.



  32. Kent Kirkwood on July 9, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    you got a sub. Great content



  33. Dear Red on July 9, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    I’m from a non hunting family. I don’t know anyone in my family who hunts. I’m 45 yrs old and just bought my first rifle last year. I would like to get a deer on some public hunting land because of my budget but I have no idea about what to do after I shoot a deer. I don’t know where to really go. I live in Dallas Texas and apparently Texas has very few options for public hunting. Everyone I know who hunts is wealthy and has a bunch of private land for hunting but a guy like me is never invited nor do I have the money to spend. I think if I ever do hunt it will be on public land instead of a lease or some fancy hunting operation. I took a hunter safety course last year and they said something about the antlers on a deer need to be a certain size before you can shoot but I don’t remember the specifics of that rule. Also I don’t understand tags. What exactly is a deer tag? Anyway I have a million questions but that’s for the video.



  34. Emiliano Reyes on July 9, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Im from El paso Texas , can I go and hunt in New Mexico public Land?



  35. Samuel leahy on July 9, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    I’m going hunting with my stepdad after thanksgiving, I’m 23 and it’ll be my first time. I’m excited to get out and be in nature and possibly kill it. Thanks for the tips.
