    Default Hello from America Greenville SC

    My name is Zach Pike and I am from South Carolina.
    Though I have never been to Africa I hope to go very soon, because it has been a life long dream to be able to go to the dark continent and hunt some of the most beautiful and formital animals in the world. I love the challenge, the more challenging the better.

    My passion is hunting and conservation, I hunt anything from whitetail, turkey, duck, wild hog, and the list goes on. I am only 25 but I like to do things the old fashioned way by going out getting dirty and putting a lot of effort in finding the right spots to find my game. I love getting others into hunting and teaching them all I know from the lay of the land, how to scout and track, to what each species like to eat and there habitats. I have other hobbies and interests like working on 4x4s, reloading my own ammo, gun smithing, and building things from scratch.

    I am a machinist by trade working with anything from manual lathes to cnc machines. I currently work at a machine shop in Fountain Inn makeing machine tools.

    I also love any and everything outdoors for mountain bike rideing, hiking, fishing, and kayaking.

    Well that's enough about me. Hope you enjoyed it and hope everything goes great for you in all your adventures.

    Welcome to AH gamehunter. Very pretty part of the world you're from. Many years ago I spent a week at was then Greeneville College for a youth church camp. I think this is now called North Greeneville University. I know there must be a bunch of whitetail and turkey running around those hills.
