18 year old wanting to learn the ropes

Gday, i'm 18 years old and currently at the University of Otago in one of the halls of residence. I have not hunted much and dont have many friends or family that do, so have limited skills, but i'm very keen on the outdoors and would love to learn to hunt so I can pursue it myself. I have looked into the uni huting and spearfishing club but it seems to be pretty inactive these days, so any help here would be really appreciated, thanks Smiley

No doubt there will be a local or two who can help. I'd suggest you also get involved with the local branch of New Zealand Deerstalkers Association. They run hunter training with trips to the Blue Mountains, and branch trips. My BIL is a member so just let me know if you need a contact/intro.
