    Hello All,

    I'm a young Hunter from Eastern Ontario, Canada. At the moment I am still in post secondary school and have been researching Africa and the possibilities available for some "inexpensive" and diverse hunting opportunities in the future.

    I have to admit I became interested through various older books on the subject, but after research and more reading I have discovered that antelope and other "smaller" game hold my interest as much as dangerous game.

    Given my blue-collar background the more expensive hunts are out of reach for quite a while but I hope to take several trip instead of one large one to get my dose of Africa.

    I hope to learn alot.

    Welcome. I would also rather enjoy 5 small safaris over 1 big one as well, however... once you get there hold onto your wallet tightly it can get away from you before you know it!

    Thanks for the Replies Fellows.

    I am hoping I can contribute to the Forum in some small way, why I am still green when it comes to big game I have alot of experience with Canadian Waterfowl and Upland Game.

    If I ever make it to Africa I will hopefully be able to chase a few birds with the scattergun.

    Welcome Turkeyslayer, i am from the same neck of the woods as you and have picked up alot of info as i plan my first safari for 2013. Africa will cost some money, but is achievable. In the meantime enjoy the great hunting in Ontario, having just moved here i took my first turkeys last year.
