My name is Daniel, and I am a month shy of 24. I went hunting with family up in Alaska as a kid, and my girlfriend has done the same. We recently bought a .308 and hope to start actually hunting next year after we get a bit of practice in. So, any tips on where to target practice that is cheap(free is better) and anything else would be appreciated. Somebody recently told me there is nowhere close by you are allowed to hunt deer or elk using a rifle only a shotgun? What's up with that, and where would I go in WA not too far from Vancouver?
