My first and only trip to Africa
My family and I traveled to South Africa a few years ago and since then I've been dying to go back. These are some of the pictures we took.
This was a Springbok my sister took, the first and only animal she's ever shot. I'll never forget the look on her face when she smelled the open fan and it smelled like cotton candy.
This was my Springbok, taken the day after my sister's. We chose him because he was older and had a broken leg.
I spent 3 days hunting Kudu climbing mountains and looking everywhere, however they continued to elude us until early in the morning we spotted this guy as we were driving around. After a short stalk we had him in the bag. Though if you look close you can see my scope managed to whack my nose pretty hard. My mom was in the truck at the time and much to her dismay she saw the shot haha.
We saw a herd of Gemsbok and after a short stalk to get into position I waited and waited while they wandered past us until the perfect Gemsbok stood and allowed me a shot. Though our guide wasn't impressed with her patchy hide I feel that it gives her a little character.
This great looking warthog was next, I was ecstatic that I managed to catch up with him even after watching him run over a ridge.
I spent the rest of my time hunting after Bushbuck. However these proved to be one of the most tricky and smart animals I've hunted. On my last day we were ready to give up when we saw one charge out in front of the truck, we tracked him and eventually caught up with him and got to take this beautiful picture near the coast.
My trip to Africa was a special experience and I hope to return someday. Thanks for looking at my pictures!

Alaskan Adventure May 2010
I was lucky enough last spring to have the chance to hunt one of these magnifcent bears. Alaska was amazing, something every hunter should have a chance to experience in his lifetime. It was a complete adventure, from the piper cub flight into spike camp. To sleeping in the bomb shelter tent. To dealing with the weather and being wet 90 percent of the time. To finally help pack a bear out, in the dark, four miles from camp.
