    Hello all, I found a link of this forum on another forum. What an awesome site with loads of info. First trip to South Africa was last year and my second was this year. Just got back about a month ago. Can't wait to go again. Guess I'm an addict when it comes to Africa. Luckily so is the wife. Went as an observer last year and decided she was going to become a hunter this year and did really well. Look forward to learning alot about Africa on this forum as well as hearing about others experiences. Thanks, John

    Thanks all. Jerome, I not only shot that kudu on my first safari but it was also the first African animal I ever took. The only other Kudu I had seen was probably a two year old. It was just the wife and me in the blind at the time and I thought he looked pretty good! They told me I could hunt Africa every year for the rest of my life and not top it. I equate it to a 14 year old kid on his first elk hunt taking a 375" class bull. They just don't have any idea how lucky they were. The wife was looking for the cheaper animals on her first hunt (warthog, impala, blesbok) but already has her sights on kudu, gemsbok and zebra for next time so yah it could get expensive. Oh well I know alot of guys that would love for there wife to be interested in hunting much less actually hunt.
