    Hi there... Not sure if I will be accepted in here ... but... I am a BRAND NEW hunter...yes new.... thanks to my hubby showing me the ropes... But we would love to hunt in Africa. That would be fantastic. Yes last year was my first ever to hunt. And I was successful. I got a bear - and - a deer... so... I still have lots to learn. Any way...hey everyone and nice to be in here. Oh and I am from Canada.

    Deerhunter-tish, welcome and ask away. All of us will be more than willing to share what we know. I have taken 6 new hunters to Africa in the last 3 years (they paid their own way but had never been to Africa) and they all loved it and are returning again. Look for some of my posts for first timers here on this board and ask any questions you desire but remember- If you go once YOU WILL RETURN!!!

    D.T! You don't have to earn the right to be here!!! Just enjoy the posts, take or dismiss the advice, don't get all bent out of shape if you don't agree with whats said. Contribute in whichever way you feel comfortable with and remember 'there are no stupid questions, just stupid mistakes to be made for not asking!' :)

    Hi

    You and your hubby should get on a pane asap to Africa !

    The areas we can hunt and the constant battle against poachers, government 'interests' ( often the same thing ), eco lodges and pure human expansion, mean that areas are shrinking fast.

    Best areas for total wilderness hunting Safaris, as well as price, are Zambia and Mozambique currently.

    Very happy to help if you want to plan anything or get some introductions.

    All best

    Tony

    Welcome to the forum! My wife began hunting after about 15 years of being married and she hasn't looked back! We went to Africa (Namibia) 2 years ago & we cannot wait to hunt in Zimbabwe this year... All the best!

    Welcome Deerhunter. Enjoy the sport as much as we do, respect the outdoors and the animals and you will have a blast. Just a warning, if you and your husband ever go to Africa, it is very addicting and I would imagine you 2 will be planning a return before your first safari is over.
