The best way is as a kid with your parents.

After that is with any mentor especially an older person who will lend their respectableness to you for the purposes of landowner permissions. They often know everyone for miles and will introduce you. That being said any mentor is better than none unless they are scumbags with no morals.

If you can’t find a mentor or are intent on going it alone you will need to take a hunters education course (everyone has to not just the un-mentored). They will teach you the basics. After that books are helpful and your local fish and game department can be very helpful. However there is no substitute for time afield

Ask a hunter to take you with them on a hunt. Most will be very enthused to take you and teach you. You may even get to use a loaner gun if you don’t already have one. Or buy a binoculars for bird and animal watching, something like this https://www.atncorp.com/smart-hd-binocular
