    Hi to everybody.

    I have always had a deep interest in hunting in Africa and was lucky enough to hunt a couple of times 15 years ago in the south. Its been a journey from then DIY hunting and guiding in many other countries and now as i am in my late 30's i am rekindling that flame (that has never gone out) to one day arrange some self guided hunting and adventures up north, hopefully in Cameroon. The research wheels are in motion, but there is a lot to figure out.

    I am just an ordinary guy working two jobs his whole life, but i just love to hunt at every opportunity. Which is something we do a lot over here in Australia.

    I will be happy to post up a few of my hunts and if anybody needs some info or advice on hunting in the South Pacific guided or self guided i will be happy to share what knowledge i have.

    This site looks full of keen hunters and great information, a nice place to spend some time i think!

    Cheers

    HGWT

    Thanks for the welcome guys.
    I'm currently heading over to NZ for ten days on the
    chamois and tahr, self guided, so hopefully I'll have a
    few pictures and a story of our little adventure when I
    get back.

    It's been 6 months since I was last hunting the southern
    alps in NZ and I just love those big mountains.
