    Hi everyone. I live near Pittsburgh, PA, USA. I grew up in South Dakota and have lived in Iowa and Indiana.
    As a kid I hunted small game, waterfowl, pheasants and deer. When I moved to Iowa, I began bowhunting and that is mostly what I do now.
    I've been fortunate enough to hunt deer, pronghorn antelope, and bears here in North America. In 2008 I was blessed to be able to hunt in RSA with Srewart Dorrington at Melorani Safaris where I took 2 impala, 2 warthogs, a gorgeous kudu and a great blue wildebeest.

    Welcome to AH gildy! Good to have another bowhunter amongst us. Share with us some of the trophies that you took in South Africa last year. Are you planning another hunting safari in Africa?

    I don't have a return trip planned yet, but I definitely want to go back. I never did get a gemsbok or zebra, so that is the excuse I am using for my wife. Next time maybe Namibia, although I would happily return to visit Melorani Safaris again.
