    Default Howdy from Texas

    Howdy everyone!!

    I should have introduced myself here first, but I jumped onto one of the sub forums first.

    I found this forum while searching for information on hunting in Africa (obviously). I will go going on my first safari in June or July of 2014 and plan on hunting plains game in the Limpopo area of South Africa. I'm exceptionally excited about this trip and am thankful that I found this group. I have been brousing the posts and have already had a bunch of my questions answered. More importantly my brousing has brought up alot of questions that I didn't even know to ask.

    I am looking forward to getting to know yall and picking your brains in preparation for my trip.

    God Bless!!

    Thanks for the welcome everyone!

    I will be hunting with Africa Sport Hunting Safaris for plains game. I'm going to try and stretch my budget as much as possible and hope to take impala, warthog, blesbuck, bushbuck, and possibly zebra. I plan on using a 338 Win Mag with Barnes bullets for my hunt.

    Cliffy - I am from Odessa on the opposite side of Texas from Houston.

    Bluey - Here in Texas I hunt white-tail deer, mule deer, feral hogs, dove, and quail. I plan on rifle hunting, but have thought about taking my scoped 44 mag.

    Buff-Buster - Odessa, way on the other side of the state from you. But you are correct, and Texas is the GREATEST state in the union!!

    Thanks again everyone. I'm excited beyond words!

    lwaters - I was quail hunting south of Odessa about 10 years ago with my children (6 and 8 at the time) when I heard something walking nearby. I saw 2 big animals about 25 yds away that I didn't recognize. It turned out they were aoudads. From my description the ranch owner later told me they would have been dandy trophies. It was great just seeing them.
