    Hello all.
    I am new to this forum and website. I have been a member of a few other hunting forums for quite a few years. I deer hunt in Missouri, deer and elk hunt in Colorado and also do a little small game and bird hunting. I also do some rifle stock work and tinker with rifles including reloading the majority of my ammo.
    I found this site while looking at anything to do with African hunting. My family and I are planning a plains game hunt and family vacation to South Africa for June of 2012. I will be lurking, reading and asking a lot of questions in the coming months. Please bear with me as I plan my first out of country safari. Looking forward to hearing from many of you.
    Take Care, Les

    Thanks to all for the kind welcome. Even though our trip is still a year away, I find it is constantly on my mind and sometimes even when I should be doing other things. I have many decisions and more plans to be made. I am already in a dilemma over which rifle/rifles to take.
    Thanks again everyone.
    Les
