Looking for someone in the Edmonton area who is getting into waterfowl hunting. But I'm not looking for this year, I'm looking ahead into next year and beyond. I'm looking for someone who's motivated to head out and find new ground, "waste" days scouting and isn't afraid to get dirty and share ideas/areas/tactics as we BOTH work to build up our knowledge base. I'm new to it so I don't have a lot of equipment (gun, 3 dekes, waders) but for my first waterfowl season, it's been working out pretty well so far.

I spend from 50-100 days per year camping/hunting/hiking etc so I have a pretty good general knowledge base, just looking for someone who's willing to put in the grunt work with me.

If this looks like a job posting, it's because I'm tired of having buddies get super amped up to go hunting but then expect me to do all of the scouting, show them everything I've discovered and put them into animals first while they GPS spots and take their buddies there later on.

This whole thing sounds super gay but... f it, finding the right hunting partner is much harder than I first thought it would be.

I live up in grande prairie and I am getting frustrated in not finding my first bull elk on my own and am looking for a new hunting partner with experience that lives up here and is willing to teach me a few skills in finding the elusive elk around here . I know a few buddies have no problems finding them but we are on opposite schedules and some of them are not eager to give up their secret spot for elk .

Default Veteran father, rookie hunter.

I'm in the Calgary area. I'm 44 and a father of four.

My 15 year old son wanted to start hunting last year so I said sure and I decided to get into it as well.

We have only been out a couple times for deer, ducks and grouse. Only success with grouse up to this point. (Oddly enough it was my 17 year old daughter who hit the bag limit on grouse and not my son and I)

I have probably read a dozen books on hunting over the last year. Watched a lot of Youtube video on hunting and some programs on the hunting channel. My problem is its only head knowledge and I haven't been able to put much of it into practice yet. So I'm hoping there is someone out there who is looking for a couple rookie hunting partners on whom they are willing to take under their wing and help us learn. It doesn't matter if you are aged 19 or 90 to me. We want to be a sponge and soak up as much of your experience as possible.

We are happy to hunt big game (rifle), water fowl and upland birds. Even rabbit hunting is welcomed option for us.

You can PM, call or text me at 4o3 613 3253.
