I'm new to hunting (well, I've observed hunting as a young'in with my Grandfather in Washington State). Where should I start? I don't really have any friends that hunt and I live in a Hampton Roads City within Virginia State (East Coast on the Water). I would love to hunt but don't know where to start. I own a CETME .308 semi-auto rifle that if added with a scope (or use without one) could possibly check out as a hunting rifle okay. I have a shotgun, but it maybe too short to be for hunting. A police tactical Remington that has an 18 inch barrel on it. If anyone cares to help me, a person that has no idea where to start out with hunting at, please feel free to respond to this thread. It may help others out too, whether they live in Virginia State or elsewhere. *By the way, I think I heard that I can only hunt with Shotgun here in Virginia. Not exactly sure though.
