    G'Day all,

    My names Troy. Currently living in NSW Australia. Have been an avid fisherman and hunter my whole life. Took up the bow around 10 years ago and have recently started some more serious rifle hunting. Have a fair bit of experience hunting the usual ozzie game animals sucha s pigs and goats but have had the blessing to hunt some big game as well. Have taken water buffalo in the NT and last year travelled to the US and got a great elk. Have dreamed of Africa fir many years now and hope to make a trip in the next year or two. So joined this forum hoping to get some good info and advice.
    Cheers,
    Troy
