Hello from Montana
Hi all. This looks like a great forum to be part of. Africa has become a special place for me, and this forum is a great place to re-live memories and to dream of future hunts.
I grew up in Colorado, and began hunting when I was in college and living summers in NW Colorado. After college, I moved to Montana and have called this place home for almost 40 years.
I had some fantastic hunting here in Montana in the late 70's and 80's, taking good trophies of most of Montana's big game species on DIY hunts.
I went on my first guided hunt in 1999 to the MacKenzie Mountains in Canada's NW Territories to take a great Dall ram, Mtn Caribou, and Wolverine. I returned to NWT in 2004 to hunt two more caribou and a huge Musk ox.
I made my first hunt to the Limpopo Province of South Africa in 2000 and took 7 species of Plains Game. I returned to Africa in 2005 for a Buffalo hunt in Zimbabwe and for more Plains Game in KW Natal and the Free State of RSA. My last trip to Africa was in 2007 where I hunted a dozen species on several concessions in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa.
I also play a lot of golf, shoot skeet and trap every week, do a lot of reloading, and have done the stock work on quite a few of my rifles.

You sound like an interesting fellow, except for that four-letter word, "golf."

Welcome aboard buffybr, don't let Bill give you a hard time about "golf". I go out and drink beer, I mean "golf" too.

Bill, some women believe that golf, hunt and fish are all four-letter words!

Hi Buffybr, we hunted together in the NWT in 2004 for caribou. I'll never forget that trip! You are very serious hunter and fisherman. Welcome to the website. Congradulations on all the fine animals you have taken in Africa.
It's because of meeting Buffybr, that I got into SCI and a lot of of things in my life.
