Learn to Hunt

Learn the ropes of hunting from an experienced hunter.

LearnHunting.org has seasoned hunters in your area willing to help you with gear selection, target practice, and finding a place to hunt. They’ll also go hunting with you and help you process your game if you are lucky enough to harvest something.

All you have to do to get started is sign up, tell us what sort of hunting you are interested in, and then browse the map of experienced hunters in your area that are ready and willing to help you out. You’ll connect via email with a LearnHunting.org instructor, and if you hit it off, you can exchange contact information and get together at the range, to scout a location, or anything else that you feel you need to become a confident hunter.

You can work with a veteran hunter to learn:

  • Firearms/Archery Skills
  • Processing
  • Regulations/Licensing
  • Outdoor Skills
  • Equipment
  • Hunting Techniques
  • Prey Behavior
  • Where to Hunt
  • Taking an Ethical Shot
  • Anything else you need to become a confident hunter

To participate in this program, you will have to meet all state hunter education and license requirements. If you are unaware of these requirements, the hunter we pair you with will help you.

I really liked the one-on-one instruction and my mentor made it super easy to understand the equipment I needed and the regulations. It was just nice to be out there with someone who has more experience than me.
