You can always practice at the shooting range before going out into the wild, good if you're more than just hunting and guns other than those ideal for hunting.I've never applied for tags because I can't aim. The tag system is what I read up on when I was interested in hunting a while back.
You can learn it just how you do with anything else. Learning how to shoot would be the first thing, probably a good idea to consider doing that at a range firstHow would you go about starting to hunt? Seems like something that is usually taught to kids from their dad.
