    Hi Everyone
    As this hunting year will soon be coming to an end, I'm just putting some feelers out to see what everyone has planned for 2012 I know that I've got an 8 day hunt booked back at Huntershill Safaris from 30 May - 6 June I'll be hunting my 57th Birthday (2 June) and on my list is a Common Reedbuck, Vaal Rhebuck to finish my Reedbuck Slam as well as a Bushbuck and of course my Warthog, the wife will be going for a Zebra, Red Hartebeest, Steenbuck and Common Duiker. Hoping some AH friends will show up for a hunt and drink a Beer with me on my Birthday (Beers on Greg). Tell us about your plans for 2012.

    Lenny I'm glad to hear your taking your wife along I'm sure she'll love it mine did. Be sure she has a good camera for lots of pictures you may want to carry along a few extra bullets for her as well they really get in to the hunt once they get there. Bob

    Unfotunatly 2012 will not see me doing a trip to Africa. The current plan is another DG hunt in 2014 with good friend. He will be celebrating his 50th with bull ele hunt. So naturally I will have to also partake in hunting. I think another buff, tuskless, and kudu will be on the shopping list. So till then it's saving the penny's.

    I will be heading to SA next July to complete my spiral slam with a big Nyala, hopefully!!! Looking to also pick up a bushbuck, bushpig, blue duiker and another warthog. It's not that far away but sure seems like an
    eternity at this point.

    2013 for me as well, Zebra, Gemsbok and a world class Blue Wildebeest. I'll be hunting with Koedoeberg again, great land, great group of guys and great animals. Expecting my mounts from this year in 2012, plus i don't want to miss Obama being voted out of office, wouldn't miss that for the world.

    I'll be hunting nyala, bushbuck, bushpig and maybe a buffalo in Kwa-Zulu Natal in July. My wife and son will be coming with me for their first visit to Africa. My son is planning to hunt impala, warthog, blesbuck and black wildebeast. In addition to our hunting we're going to Victoria Falls/Hwange before the hunt and will be doing some sightseeing & fishing in Zululand.
