Give this episode a listen to hear a few tips and stories from mentors and mentees in bird hunting.
Crowd Source Session: Bird hunting is a craft that’s very hard to learn from books and YouTube. Mentoring and being mentored is an invaluable aspect of learning to hunt different birds, training/hunting over dogs, and wingshooting. In this episode we ask people that are new to bird hunting and being mentored right now as well as those that have done significant amounts of mentoring to share about their advice and experiences, good and bad, and what has been the most helpful in their journeys.
