What's the minimum equipment I need to hunt deer? How do I get started? Sorry if this question has been asked a million times here already, don't visit this board too often.
>>
Figure out where you want to hunt, and what is legal to use to kill deer.

How far in are you gonna go?
How long will you be there?
>>
You need something that can legally and ethically kill a deer (rifle, shotgun, bow)

You need to be proficient with it.

You need licenses and probably hunter education to be legal. Read all the regs where you are going to hunt.

You need a place where you can hunt that has deer and a way to get there.

That is the bare ass minimum.

Weapons levels:

Don't forget all this >>1113461 since some places don't allow certain things like spear, crossbows, or rimfire ammo.

Just start with squirrel. Why do all of you autists want a deer on babby's first huntin trip? Christ, I have to say this in every thread like this that pops up, it should be in the sticky by now. Small forest game first! It's probably in season right now wherever you are. Take your 12 gauge shotgun, buy a case of light target loads, and go shoot some squirrel and/ or birds until you know what you are doing. Then when you actually know what you are doing, buy a box of slugs and shoot a deer.

I enjoy squirrel hunting with my .17 way more than deer season.
>>
>>1113750
First animal I shot was a moose, but I don't hunt solo, I go with other more experienced hunters. I would advice other noobs to ask family, friends etc. who hunt about joining them.
>>
>>1113865
First thing I shot was a deer when I was about 4yo.
>>
>>1113750

This. And you're way more likely to actually come home with something than going deer hunting.
>>
>>1113308
12 gauge single shot can be bought for like $100, become proficent at shooting slugs with it, and moving quietly while /out/. I agree with >>1113750 you should do small game first. There are grouse where I live and its a very enjoyable hunting for your first time
>>
>>1113308
State hunting license + deer tag; Can be free if you're on food stamps or a disabled vetran.

Apropriate weapon and ammunition; bow/muzzleloader/rifle

Literally just those two.

Inb4 /k/ deer rap....>>1113771 son of a bitch!

Thanks, everyone- hunting and being out in nature looks so fun, and this gives me a starting point.
>>
>>1113469
I don't even hunt, but using an atlatl for wild hogs sounds amazing
>>
my minimum (day trip)

rifle(scoped), cammo, extra rounds
pack frame, knife, knife sharpener, meat bags

no water, no food, gear stays at car, or cabin
>>
>>1114080
Spear hunting is pretty cool too.
>>
>>1113750
Deer hunting isn't that bad for newbies depending on the area. Now turkey hunting is different, and is the real outdoorsmen's game.
>>
>>1115360
Gutting and quartering the deer is no fun if you are alone and have never done it before. Very likely to walk away empty handed and get discouraged. If we're talking about parking the pickem up truck 100 yards form the treehouse and instantgraming on the phone until some poor buck wanders into the feeder, then I guess it isn't a problem. Also trapping is the real woodsman's pursuit, but I digress.
>>
>>1115360
Fucking hell, turkeys are easier to raise than hunt. I wish there were more turkeys around here though.
>>
If you hunt, are you allowed to leave the dear there after you kill it or do you have to take it?
>>
>>1115393
No, it is a punishable crime to do that. If you are even considering doing this stay out of the fucking woods. Leave guns alone too, cock sucker.
>>
>>1115393
why would you kill it otherwise, retard? go shoot niggers or yourself, leave hunting for real men
>>
>>1115404
I'm just curious. I want to go hunting but have no friends that do it and don't have a truck.

hey now hold on a minute. it takes waaaaay more skill and training to fly an A-10 and successfully engage a ground objective than it does to do any of that other stuff.

SO HUNT A FUCKING SQUIRREL
>>
>>1114080
Tannerite® is best for hog hunting. Videos are fucking hilarious. And its usually pretty gamey meat so fuck it.
>>1115414
People have been hunting for thousands of years.
You can cut off legs in the field and throw them in a cooler in your trunk.
>>
>>1114978
Seconding this, >>1113308
You need a hunting knife to gut the animal and either a solid understanding or someone experienced with you who can tie off the butthole.
Then you need bags and a pack frame to remove it from the woods
>>
>>1113308
pack light with something you can overfill. get the best binoculars you can afford, stick to 8x42. gps is a good idea. don't skimp on good footwear and go with an experienced deer hunter.
>>
>>1115414
then don't hunt animals that you can't carry

it's all sorts of fucked to kill an animal for fun and let him rot on the ground
