    Go ahead and laugh now, get it out of your system! I've hunted Canada since I was old enough to hold up my own .22 - Moose, deer, elk, bears, antelope, caribou, sheep, goats, upland and wetland birds

    I went on my first African Safaris last year.. should have heeded some good advice given to me before I left.

    The Most dangerous hunt in Africa is the first one, cause after that you will never stop thinking about the next time you get to go!

    Buddy and I hunted Okondura, in Namibia last year and we had a great time! Fantastic people, great food and way too much fun hunting! We shot Kudu, Gemsbok, Warthogs, Mountain Zebra, Hartebeest, and we went to the ocean for a day and caught a 125 Kilo Bronze Whaler shark!

    Plan to use Africa Hunting to plan a water buffalo hunt in 2014!

    I've learned a lot already from reading the different forums - thanks!

    Welcome to AH. By the look of your list there it sounds like you are a fellow Albertan?

    Never know.., might have been guided. :)
    That list of species would suggest someone from out west.


    Welcome to the Canadian cadre here on AH.

    It is dangerous to go to Africa and hunt a first time.

    Lucky you, I never had the chance to hunt there but I'm familiar with the base. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
