    Default Greetings from Africa

    Greetings everyone,

    Just want to do the right thing and introduce myself, my name is Darren Merrills, I'm an attorney from Johannesburg South Africa. I grew up on a game farm my entire life and return most weekends if possible. Anyway I just wanted to say hi and I look forward to our future discussions.

    Welcome aboard Darren. Nice to have input from someone that has lived on a game farm.
    When I am not hunting, I am thinking about hunting....I think I'll go hunting.

    Most weekends back to the farm must mean you get to hunt a bit.

    Look forward to your input.

    Thanks for all the great welcome guys. To answer Brickburn and Phoenix questions, I grew up on a game farm in an area just past Zeerust towards Madikwe about 60km from the Kopfontein border post into Botswana.

    I don't hunt every weekend if I get a chance to go back to the farm as I try to only hunt as and when my biltong and meat supply is running low and to me I don't see shooting every animal I see ethical just because I can, but if something I see appeals to me then I may pull out the rifle and have a bit of a hunt.

    I look forward to chatting to you guys, and is any of you are in RSA give me a shout, it would be great to go to the range and let off a few rounds and have a braai and to guns!
