So I have been trolling AH now for several months and figured its time to say "Hey". I really like the site and have been finding lots of good conversation and info. I have never hunted in Africa but planning my first trip(s) as fast as I can. The plan is that I am going with the family in 2018 for my 50th bday, assuming I am still around but... I can't wait that long. SOOO I am going to plan on a SA hunt with my son in 2016 with the priority on taking a good Kudu and gaining experience. Haven't decided on an outfitter or even particular area but ready to get on nailing it down. I live in Alaska and hunt and fish all the time (ok as much as I can) around work and the family. I had a really awesome Wyoming antelope hunt last year with my dad and I am ready to start spreading my wings and hunting outside AK soooo "here we go".... Or maybe it should be "South Africa Here We Come"
