    Hello folks. I'm new to the forum and I'm looking forward to learning more from members. I've hunted Africa twice--first time in the Cape Province in 2008 and again last June with my son, who is in the second grade. We hunted the Limpopo Province and had a fantastic time. Our outfitter took great care of us and paid particular attention to my boy, who managed to take a zebra, steenbuck, and warthog. We lost his wildebeast, although our tracker tried half a day to find it. Like everyone has explained to me, you can't go to Africa just once. So, we're planning on returning June 2011. Between us, we still have a few species left and some remaining space on the wall to fill.

    Welcome! Bet that was a great experience for you and better yet your son! I remember all my hunts with my dad like it was yesterday. Now my dad and I are going to SA in may. Great memories and more to come.
