    Hello,
    I stumbled on to this site while researching a couple of outfitters. I am impressed on the amount of information found here. By the way, I hail from Kodiak Alaska.

    Welcome guns68, I think you'll find this a great place to start/continue your research for an African safari. Lots of experienced hunters here, so please ask any and all questions you may have. You can't gather too much information when planning a safari, but you sure can collect too little.

    If you find time to post some hunting stories and pics from Alaska, I'm sure it would be welcomed!

    Hi, guns68.

    Welcome to AH. I have been welcomed to this site just a few days ago, and, I am enjoying it immensely. You ran into a good source of info, and,... into a great bunch of people, who love hunting.
    By the way, I used to live in Anchorage for a couple of years. Did quite a bit of hunting when I lived there, but never had a chance to get to Kodiak.
    Welcome again, buddy.

    Regards,
    Mike.

    Welcome to the site Guns. I am also from Alaska, Homer, so, not too far from you. Great site to visit here, if you are going to Africa. Welcome, Brian

    Hi, Guns68.

    Welcome to AH. Good place to come to. You are a member of a good organization, good man.
    Hey, I used to live in Anchorage for a couple of years, and, I've done some hunting in your wonderful land. But, I never got to step on a Kodiak Island soil, which I do regret. How does it feel to live on Kodiak?

    Regards,
    Mike.

    Wow, Thanks everone for the warm welcome! Brian, you in Homer? that's almost a stones throw away. Mike, right now living in Kodiak is chilly and icy. It's 27 F with about a 1/4 inch of ice and the wind is blowing 20kts. Pretty typical for this time of year. About the best way I can describe it a quote from a book I read years ago "you come up here in the summer and you think you could live here for the rest of your life, but come March you would give three years of your life for a weekend out of town". Like anywhere else you take the good with the bad.

    Hi, Guns68.

    I'd suggest you check out Wintershoek Safaris; give Wiaan van der Linde or Strauss Joardaan a buzz. Good company, great bunch of guys, excellent hunting; I've hunted with them several times.

    regards,
    Mike.
