Hunting – This recreation with a bow can be the biggest adventure! You may be able to shoot, but hunting with a bow means you are part of the woods, not a spectator. Your best start is a certified Bowhunter Education program (IBEP). Many federal reserves, state and corps of engineer properties that allow hunting require this certification in addition to a hunting license. Start here, then explore hunting options with your local governmental bodies for public permits (access to public hunting areas) and mentored hunt programs (like the Texas Youth Hunting Program). Also, look at these get started ideas from ATA (click).
