    Default New member, bowhunter, Africa hunter soon.

    Hello,My name is Rick.I'm from Connecticut,U.S.A and I found this site while researching a Bowhunt to Africa.There are so many choices,but I'm pretty sure I'll do a Plains game,10 day,5 or 7 animal hunt to S.A. I really wanted to go for Buffalo but that seems like one of the pinnacles,not a first trip kind of hunt.I'm thinking July looks good this summer but could go other months also.I have harvested by bow about 25 whitetails and a wild boar,and usually bowhunt about 40 days a year.Any advise would be great,because I'm ready to book and want to firm up the trip and air.Thanks

    Welcome Rick! I am not to far from You up here in NH. Hold on tight because once you go over to Africa with a bow you are in for one hell of a ride. Lots of bowhunters here so feel free to ask any questions.
