    Hello fellow hunters, I am new to this site and new to hunting. Actually going on my first official hunt in August in SA with Gerrit of Bosendal and really looking forward to it. I am doing this one alone as it is something I have always wanted to do for my first time and I don't actually personally have friends that hunt. Most of my friends think I am a bit strange doing this but this is what I have always wanted to do and I now plan to make it a fairly regular occurrence. I am looking at making this an annual event for me and that's the reason why I am posting on this site. Are there any groups or any fellow hunters that do annual hunting trips either inside South Africa or outside of the country that are looking for people to join? I currently live in the UAE so hence the reason I am keen on doing an annual trip with a group as this is a way for me to learn more as well as gaining valuable experience and most importantly making friends along the way. Look forward to any sort of feedback.

    Cheers for now,
    Jon

    Jon, Welcome to AH.

    You have just joined a bunch of other "strange" people right here.

    New to hunting and heading to RSA. Congratulations.
    I would love to be able to make it to Africa on an annual basis.

    What have you hunted thus far?
    What are you hunting this trip?

    Hi!
    Thanks for the welcoming...

    I am actually South African but been living abroad for past 8 years. I do get to head to South Africa due to my family still living there.

    I have hunted a few rabbits and bush pig but that's about it. So for my hunt in August I am planning on a Kudu bull trophy, Springbok trophy, impala, wildebeest & zebra. Super excited. I look forward to my future hunts in Africa and I hope around the globe as well.

    Cheers

    Good luck. That list will present you with some great hunting opportunity.

    This is the link to the National association of Hunting Associations in RSA.
    You may be able to find some "local" folks that enjoy hunting and would be more than happy to help you out.

    CHASA - The National Confederation of Hunters Associations of South Africa

    When you are ready to start heading around the globe let me know if you are coming this way and I'll see what I can do for you.
