    Default Hello from Idaho

    Hello all,
    My wife and I are starting the planning for a June 2013 African Safari hunting plains game in the Limpopo area.
    It is our 25th anniversary this year and we were looking at going on an Alaskan cruise to celebrate. We almost had the tickets bought when this opportunity came up. I told my wife that this sounded better than any boat ride, and she agreed.
    We are both hunters here in Idaho, hunting deer, elk, antelope, and birds. We own and operate a hay and wheat farm as well as work full time outside of the farm. Getting free time to go and enjoy seems to get harder every year.
    Every day I stop and read an article on AH. It is one of my highligts that I look forward to every morning. The great advise and information that is available here is outsanding and a great help for first timers like my wife and I.
    We look forward to using the help found on AH to help us set up what I am sure will be the first of many adventures.
    Thanks to all in advance for helping us make the most out of our trip.

    Welcome JTT! This is a great place for the 1st timer to plan a trip to Africa. There is a warning that many will give you, so I'll just be the first. Plan on returning! If you go once you will go again if at all possible. You'll just have to trust us on that one.

    Ahhhh, Idaho. This is the time when I miss it the most. I lived in Pocatello for about 9 years before moving to Arizona. It's of course turning to hell right now here just as the trout fishing is coming into full swing. If I were still there I could just about promise you I'd be found after work on a stream somewhere throwing a fly.

    Enjoy AH and ask all the questions you may have. But to get things started, do you have any ideas of where you want to go and for what species?

    Hello from another Idahoan!!!

    I live in South-Central Idaho and made some fantastic connections here on AH. I hooked up with a great booking agent that we used for our first trip in 2010 hunt to Namibia. We just got back from another hunt with the same PH in April. At this point, I'm hopelessly addicted.

    Send a PM if you'd like info on contact information, taxidermy options, or just to say hi.

    Welcome to AH!

    Thanks for the warm welcome!
    The combined knowledge of everyone here on AH is mind boggeling. I guy could never get tired of reading all of the stories, reports, looking at the photos. It really gets the blood pumping in anticipation.
    We are located about a half hour noth of Idaho Falls, ID. Spent last saturday fly fishing Warm River above Ashton. Had a great time.
    The wife and I purchased a 4 day hunt package for blue wildebeest, impala, and warthog with Numzaan safaris at a Friends of the NRA banquet back in February. We have since upped it to a 10 day hunt and added kudu, gemsbok, red hartebeest, and springbuck to the ever growing list of species we would like to hunt. The wife is already starting a list for our return trip.
    With the information we have read in several articles on AH we have contacted Lori with Travel Express to help us with our travel arrangements.
    There is a lot of new experiences ahead of us, but it is comforting to know that we have the knowledge here on AH to help us along the way.

    Welcome to the forum, JTT, you made a wise choice when deciding to go to the Limpopo instead of a cruise, and you will certainly return to Africa.

    The wife will be shooting a SAKO Finnbear 270 with 160gr Nosler partitions. I will take my 20 year hunting partner 30.06 Remington 700BDL shooting 220gr Nosler partitions. I also have a Ruger 300 Win Mag, but the .06 and I have been hunting a long time and she is just proven herself tried and true.
