    Welcome to the AH forum Fernando! Although I've never visited the Azores my wife and I've vacationed in Mainland Portugal and found it to be an absolutely fabulous place. We will definitely return.

    Welcome aboard Fernando. I have been to the Azores twice when my ship refueled there.

    Ok, will be my pleasure to share hunting experiences with you all
    Normaly what I hunt in Europe are the wild bore, the roe buck and the European deer.
    I`m using two differents calibres, the 9,3x62 for the big wild bores in center of Europe like Hungary, Romenia and Bulgaria and the 30 06 for the rest of the animals.
    I also enjoy the bird shooting ( partridge )
    Thanks
    Fernando

    Monish,

    In SA I`m still hunting with the same outfitter Giant African Safaris in Limpopo province next to the Botswana border.
    Next September I´m going to have my first experience on Big Game with Cape Bufflalo in Tanzania. By the way I`m looking for an air charter to fly from Dar es Salaam to Katavi National Park. Do you know anybody on the business ?
