Do you have a place to hunt? I have two great locations, one in Livermore and another in Fremont, both have great natural cover and offer very good hunting - I love to see young people get involved in the sport of hunting and would be happy to have you both come and try your luck.
Nice Toms! I don't know about NewbShooter but I would love to take you up on your offer for Livermore/Fremont. I'm in Brentwood and see all those Toms along 84 (on private land) taunting me! PM me if you are willing to allow me access/take me out there. I don't think my daughter will come but my wife will!
