    Talking Newbie from Canada

    Howdy folks,

    I joined the forum today, never hunted in Africa but not new to hunting as I have been hunting moose, deer and small games since my young age here in Canada.

    I'm in the very early stage of planning a hunting trip to Africa in the next two or three years and I came here to get more knowledge about it. I would probably start with something pretty basic such as a five species plainsgame safari and go from there.

    I'm in my mid-30's, married with no kids, I speaks English and French, I like motorcycles, bulldogs, shooting, off roading and the great outdoors in general. I have been working in the Canadian Army for almost 20 years, I served in Germany, Bosnia and Afghanistan as well as some domestic deployments.

    I can't wait to read your posts and learn from you guys.

    Stephen

    Thanks for the warm welcome Jerome.

    I forgot to mention that I have family in South Africa so it would probably be my hunting destination as I'd like to combine a hunting trip with visiting relatives.

    Stephen, welcome to the forum, I am actually starting a trip to RSA today partially thanks to this great forum. Lots of people who can help you get that first trip off the ground. Like you I have been in the Canadian Army for 25 years and served in Afghanistan, Congo and Haiti. Any questions at all, feel free to send me a PM. Aussi, je suis capable de parler en francais.

    Welcome to AH.
    Just came down from hunting Vaalies at 8600 feet in EC and thought I would stop by AH before dinner.

    Glad to see another Canadian joining in. You can hunt anywhere in southern Africa and take a short skip or jump to visit family in RSA.

    Good luck planning.
    Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
    A Legend in my own mind!
