    Hello to all. I recently came across this site while doing some initial research for a possible trip to Africa, and have found it to be very useful and informative. I am a currently serving Army Officer in the Canadian Army and have hunted most of Canada, Texas and France. I will be deploying to DRC as part of the UN Contingent this August and when i have finished the tour would like to take my first safari to Africa with my spouse. I look forward to planning this safari and to chatting with all of the members on this site.

    Welcome and glad to hear you are in the planning stage of an African hunt. I've hunted several foreign countries but the nation of Texas isn't on my list yet...:)

    There is a lot of information here, many, many experiences, advice on where, who, and what. My advice: GO, it will likely change your life. It changed mine.

    Thanks for the warm welcome and pointing in the right direction. I have started to make contact with some outfitters to discuss the possibilities of a hunt in summer 2013 after my return from DRC with the UN. Look forward to the chat and your input as i go through this process to plan my first safari with my spouse.
