Hello fellow hunters, I have the goal set of a plains game hunt in Africa for my 40th birthday (still a couple of years away), so I have joined your esteemed forum so that I am well prepared for my first PG hunt. I also intend to hunt the mountains of NZ. I am not interested in trophies, I work as a professional ecologist in Australia, so for me it is more about understanding each game animal, being in the bush and the hunt itself. I have hunted, and in many cases been involved in culling programs, of most species available in Australia (varmints to large game), with the exception of buffalo & sambar deer, which are VERY high on my to do list. I look forward to learning from those who have been before!
