    Hello each and every one,

    This forum looked to be a good place to keep up on bargain prices for African hunting and fishing.
    Not being a tape measure / trophy book type person, I hope to periodically run across affordable non-trophy type hunts, tusk less or cow and/or management bull elephant, cow buffalo, broken horn buffalo, various antelope species culling, and such likes, within this forum.
    Likewise, I am always eager to learn what others have to say about Africa.
    Been there 4 times but have only become more addicted.
    Still a beginner, definitely.
    Cannot afford to go very often but every 3 or 4 years I sometimes manage to save up enough to go again.
    Thank you all in advance, for answering the questions I will ask and the jabbering that I will answer some of yours with.

    I spent most of my life savings on Mausers and hunting trips, the rest I just wasted.

    Keep Well,
    Ard

    Stories?

    Thanks and yes, I have stories.
    However, nothing too fantastic, no shootouts with poachers or a lion's savage charge stopped in mid-air, etc, etc., just fairly typical hunting & fishing yarns.
    At the moment, I am swamped at work and home, therefore, I won't be able to type epic novels, until I get caught up one of these days.
    But, I do look forward to tapping in to this forum now and again.
