    Hello,My name is Rick.I'm from Connecticut,U.S.A and I found this site while researching a Bowhunt to Africa.There are so many choices,but I'm pretty sure I'll do a Plains game,10 day,5 or 7 animal hunt to S.A. I really wanted to go for Buffalo but that seems like one of the pinnacles,not a first trip kind of hunt.I'm thinking July looks good this summer but could go other months also.I have harvested by bow about 25 whitetails and a wild boar,and usually bowhunt about 40 days a year.Any advise would be great,because I'm ready to book and want to firm up the trip and air.Thanks

    Welcome Rick, You will love this site, alot of collective knowledge in these parts. Scott

    P.S. Check out Koedoeberg webite, I am hunting with Willem in June this year. But, there are alot of outfitters/PH's on this site and haveing read most of their sites they would all give you what you desire on your hunt in SA.

    Welcome Rick! I am not to far from You up here in NH. Hold on tight because once you go over to Africa with a bow you are in for one hell of a ride. Lots of bowhunters here so feel free to ask any questions.
