    Hello,

    I grew up in Texas hunting, trapping and running pigs with dogs and miss it!

    I've taught special ed in Alaska for 5 years and want to see the world before I get too much older! So, when I decided to leave Texas, Alaska and Africa were the two top places on my list. Now that I've lived in the bush here in Ak, I'd like to go to Africa.

    So, I need to do some research as to where would be a great place for me to teach, not necessarily special ed, but I am certified in K-8 regular ed and K-12 special ed.

    I've done 5 years here in native bush villages and 7 years in the black community back home in Texas, so, living in a small village and being a minority would be great, but, not sure if it is a possibility and what the downfalls are. I'd like to subsistence, live off what I harvest, as much as possible, that has been the nice thing about living here in Ak.

    So, any specific info about areas, villages, jobs, school districts, churches, OR where NOT to live, would be great. I have learned to ask about the negatives and where NOT to live after coming to Ak, there is alot more racial problems here than I had ever heard about, so it was a surprise, especially after living down in the south.

    Of course I would like to hunt more than hogs, but, I would like very much to get back into the life style of raising dogs to hunt.

    Thanks,
    Scotty

    hello Fellow educator

    Scotty,
    I also am a certified k-8 teacher. I have 26 more weeks to go then I can hunt full time. 30 years in the classroom will have been enough for me. Right now, I teach U.S. History in Oregon. Good luck on finding a place.

    Looking at moving to S. Africa and need info

    Hi, I've posted before, but, with no luck, so, I thought I would try again.

    I teach and hunt in Alaska, grew up hog hunting in Texas, and would like to teach and hunt somewhere in Africa.

    I would like links, ideas, areas, or any info you have as to prices for non residents and regs for hog hunting. Do you know of a good place to live/teach that is near hog hunting areas? As a non resident, can I use dogs my first year?

    Hope to hear back
    Scotty

    Africa...are there other continents to hunt?
    I think you are going to find that a lot of the warthog and Bushpig hunting is done on private property, controlled for trophy quality. As such, you will most likely have to pay a trophy fee and some sort of trespass/daily fee to hunt.
