I was recently invited to act as a backup to a bow-hunter. He would like to take a black bear with his bow, I would tag along with my .303 to keep him from becoming bear-lunch if he fails.
I do not think that trusting me on this is a good idea. However, I realized I would like to try hunting, small game to start with, deer later.
I realized that I lack any idea as to where to find game, when and where it is legal to hunt and what to do with the critter if and when I succeed.
Could any Minnesotans on TFL clue me in on these questions? Also, would anyone like to take a complete neophite along next time they go hunting?
