    I think that i depends on where you live. i live in georgia and i dont need tall insulated boots with wool socks or a thick insulated coat.The coldest it ever gets during the day during deer season is the 40s.You are going to need a rifle for deer and other big game and a shotgun for turkeys and waterfowl.Make sure you have a hunters saftey before you go hunting even if the state doesnt require that you have i think you should since you know so little about hunting.

    well I'll take a shot in the dark here, so to speak. Starting from the ground up;
    Boots, get good ones warm with plenty of arch support hiking boots are about 6" tall most hunting boots are 8"
    Socks wool, I like the hiking socks you get at Wal-Mart for about 12 bucks
    Layer your clothes if it cold with some insulated underwear or sweats, if its wet of there is a possiblity of getting wet a wool or poly pro will come in handy.
    outer, I wear bib overals Carhartt either lined or unlined shirt, thick and tough, wear an undershirt to keep from getting chaped.
    coat as needed gloves as needed
    wear a hat.
    gun not having a clue what you're shooting at I will recomend a 12 gauge shotgun pump action.
    a good knife, Buck makes some good ones as do others with no less than a 3" blade.
    License and permits, ink pen, lighter, watch, a day pack with "stuff" bullets,
    now go find someone that hunts whatever your planning on hunting and refine your plan.
    that's about all I can give you with what information I have

    Some people are born into this experience called hunting usually from family members or friends but some of us take it up later in life, and there is much to learn. Find a fellow hunter who is honest in his answers and ask a lot questions. Any and every question that comes to mind. Most begining hunters I know their first purchase is a warm camo jacket. Because the first person to take them hunting has the killing equipment. The guy I helped get started hunting years ago carried my buck out of the woods for me last season that is, after he saw for the first time how to gut and field dress it. Hunting in its purest form is the goodness of man and the Greatness of God.

    I like the .30 30 or .243...I use them for deer and coyotes. Their strong enough to take down deer and small enough that it doesnt tear the coyote fur. Get some orange, warm clothes, a good knife, and you'll be pretty well set. Good luck

    I would have to know what quarry you are pursuing. I have a Franchi 12ga that I have use for everything. It is made by Bennelli. I skeet/trap shoot with it. I have duck/pheasant/quail/ptarmigan/rabbit hunted with it. I can even put slugs through it with the proper choke tube. One thing that I would tell you if you are going to get a rifle and a handgun is try to get interchangable ammo (i.e. .44 Ruger Single Six, and a .44 Marlin Lever Action).

    I started off my hunting career bowhunting. Its a little expensive but you get very close to deer and you can hunt on more land since you are only shooting 20-30 yrds out. I recommend talking with hunters you know. I was in to hunting for about 3 yrs before
    I ever ACTUALLY WENT hunting. It was well worth the wait, because im hooked!

    Golfing sportsman is right you need a mentor. If there is a trap and skeet range in your area I suggest you go there and ask management for help. There are always people around those places that are willing to help a newbie. no ranges then try a gunshop. They want to sell guns and usually the staff at your local gun store can help. A good start is to try shootin some targets before you go hunting anyhow.

    jbone377, I would love to help but your question is so broad. Are you bowhunting, waterfowling, big game hunting. Are you in Manitoba, Georgia, New Mexico? Before anyone can give good advice we need good information to work with. The only advice I can give at this point is to find a mentor, someone who can take you out and teach you before you do anything on your own, the other thing i'd take a hunter safety course. This is manditory before you can buy a tag in most places anyway and you will meet people who can help you out. Good luck and be safe.

    Look on other websites for tips and techniques. There's many different things and ways to hunt. There's not enough space to answer this question.
