    Default Another Canadian Newby

    Go ahead and laugh now, get it out of your system! I've hunted Canada since I was old enough to hold up my own .22 - Moose, deer, elk, bears, antelope, caribou, sheep, goats, upland and wetland birds

    I went on my first African Safaris last year.. should have heeded some good advice given to me before I left.

    The Most dangerous hunt in Africa is the first one, cause after that you will never stop thinking about the next time you get to go!

    Buddy and I hunted Okondura, in Namibia last year and we had a great time! Fantastic people, great food and way too much fun hunting! We shot Kudu, Gemsbok, Warthogs, Mountain Zebra, Hartebeest, and we went to the ocean for a day and caught a 125 Kilo Bronze Whaler shark!

    Plan to use Africa Hunting to plan a water buffalo hunt in 2014!

    I've learned a lot already from reading the different forums - thanks!

    Welcome to AH. By the look of your list there it sounds like you are a fellow Albertan?

    Never know.., might have been guided.
    That list of species would suggest someone from out west.


    Welcome to the Canadian cadre here on AH.

    It is dangerous to go to Africa and hunt a first time.

    Lucky you, I never had the chance to hunt there but I'm familiar with the base. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
