    I figured I would post a quick intro, since I'm new to the forum. I recently got the bug to want to go after some trophy animals. I've been a shooter my entire life but just recently caught the hunting bug! I'm thinking of planning a trip to SA in '13 so I figured I would join here to get as much info as possible.

    Welcome NY. Plan on going - the African bug bite will be had to suppress after joining this forum.

    Rich, did a wine tour in your area, cannot remember the host. Anyway, met my wife in Valhalla, just curious, semi-familiar with a lot of the area. HA, couldn't tell you where I was. Welcome again to the forum.

    Rich, welcome to AH. My wife is from Seneca Falls area. I know the finger lakes area well. You have come to the right place for all things Africa. As other have said, if you have any questions feel free to ask away.
