    I'm a 50 something year old hunting addict, been hunting since I was 11.
    I planned my first African safari while I was recovering from open heart
    surgery. Completed that hunt back in May. That was a PG hunt in Namibia,
    my wife, son and youngest daughter went along and we had a ball. My son
    and I are booked with SSG Safaris for next July to hunt buffs in Zim. We
    can't wait to get back to Africa. I have learned alot from this site and am
    looking forward to learning alot more.

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome and Bluey if it's true that chicks dig scars then I'm a regular chick magnet. 4 surgeries in less than 2 years left me with some dandy scars. For a while there I thought my hunting might be over but someone or something was looking out for me. I'm not wasting any more time I'm going hunting.

    Hello jduckhunter from a fellow Pennsylvanian! Well, I was born and raised there, in the southwestern part of the state. I traveled to lots of place for my university studies and wildlife work, but eventually fell in love with the Dakota prairies and now live here in North Dakota. Glad you enjoyed your first African adventure so well!
