Default Noob hunter seeking help/advice

I live in SoCal and I have zero experience in hunting. I just got my license and I'm hoping to start hunting(ducks,deer,pig etc.) in the upcoming seasons. I'm hoping that I can tag along with someone experienced or be pointed in the right direction. Thanks!

If you are interested in starting small, perhaps we can go chase down some rabbits. PM me for more info.

After you slay some jacks, book a guided hog hunt. The experience in learning terrain, game habits, spotting, stalking, (hopefully) shooting a large, living target and then properly dealing with the bloody outcome is worth paying for.

^^^ This man has it right. But I would add find a guide that will help teach you and let them know your knowledge level so they can adjust.
A 30cal will reach out and touch them. A 50cal will kick their butt.

Put in for the duck draws at Wister and San Jacinto. If you get drawn post up here. I'm sure someone will be happy to go with. I've done that in the past.
