    hello all, my names matt and while ill probably never be able to hunt Africa... a man can dream right? its far more likely that ill be hunting big north American critters such as black bear, elk, moose, buffalo, and grizzly. should I ever come upon a large sum of money, an African hunt would be very high on my list of things to do.

    I came to this forum to admire the stories of your hunts and to learn a little more about a rifle/caliber I recently purchased. (CZ 550 American safari in .375 H&H)

    a little about me: im 28 years old and currently work for Boeing on the 787 line. im an avid firearm enthusiast and love the outdoors. I have strange ever changing tastes in firearms so my choice in firearms for certain tasks is often unique, but this has given me a wide variety of experience from muskets to machine guns. im also really bad with spelling and grammar so please be gentle. :fear:

    nice to meet you
    -matt

    Welcome to AH.

    Hope you enjoy the stories and perhaps you might just get to Africa one day.

    You do have the right rifle to do it.

    Welcome to AH. Snoop around here for even a short time and you will find that Africa can be hunted for less than Griz and less than many Moose hunts as well. A good elk hunt will cost as much as a starter African hunt. No Guff, check out the great deals on hunts forum and you will see.
