    Default Hello from North Carolina!

    Hi There all,

    Im from North Carolina and just got back from my first trip to Africa with my wife (it was our Honeymoon). Anyways we both have fallen in love with the place and before we were even out of the bush we were planning our next trip back! Next time I go I plan on having a rifle or bow accompanying me for sure.

    I have been a Whitetail hunter in North Carolina all my life and have had the chance to do a bit of hog hunting down in Florida the past few years and have been quite enjoying the more active hunt. When we were on safari in South Africa I knew in an instant that I would want to return again and again.

    For now I think I will start with a Plains game safari but I would one day like to be able to chase a Cape Buffalo around. That's my goal to work for for the next few years. Have started reading some threads about calibers and what not on here and found some really good information so I figured I better join in.

    Cannot wait to here some more stories and great advice!

    Ah! yes I can see I have already miss spoken on here. Our trip was strictly wildlife viewing. All the perserves we visited were nonhunting. The only things that had to worry about being killed at my hands were the other drivers on the roads for the first several kilometers I had the rental car for. It was still great though. Im considering it my scouting trip. Next time I will be hunting though for sure!

    Welcome to AH nchungryhunter! You've already got a good start if your a whitetail hunter chances are you already have all the rifle your going to need for Plains Game. Enjoy the site and if you have any questions just fire away.
    Enjoy life now -- it has an expiration date.
