    Welcome. This is a fantastic site! You can really get some useful information and the "Daggs boys" on this site are really helpful with tips for successful hunts and information on African hunting.

    Hey spike!..I have an Heym 88 PH on layway..it's in 450/400 and I should have it out in a few months. I'm looking for my first safari in two years and wanted to go classic with a double. So...hence the name. I know I could have bought less expensive and used that money for safari..but...I'm hard headed and right now have the opportunity to get a heym. So..I look forward to learning a lot from you guys on how to plan my first safari. When I was a kid...I lived in Ethiopia..saw a lot of stuff. Now ..retired...I want to go back while still in my fifties. Hope this makes since to you guys LOL :confused:
