Hello from an American in Ontario
I've actually lurked on this site for quite some time. It started a little before my first and only trip to Africa on a South African plains game hunt in April of 2011. As most people find out when they try an Africa hunting trip, I was pretty well hooked. I was on a nice beginners package for that trip and ended up with 7 different species and 9 trophies overall. I had brought a 300wsm for that trip.
I've since done a couple of hunts back on NA, including a fun an exciting Mule Deer hunt in Alberta this past fall.
Africa continues to call though and in the spring of this year I acquired CZ550 in 416 rigby and I've been taking a few shots off sticks with it when I can in preparation for a Buffalo hunt in the fall of 2013. It seems quite accurate although I need to either work the action enough to smooth it out or get someone to polish it a bit.
As the title indicates I'm in a unique situation as a US citizen with a residence in Ontario, Canada. I've obtained a PAL so I can have my firearms here and joined the local gun club/range.
I'll continue to monitor this site for the wonderful advice, opinions, and stories while preparing for my next adventure! I may have some specific questions of my own, especially for some of those Canadians I've seen on the site that have experience with the logistics of an Africa hunt.
