    Hey Guys,
    My name's Jesse and I will be hunting in South Africa from June 1st to the 10th, with my brother, another new member (halljr) and the men of the family. Jason's synopsis pretty much covers our introduction.. Kudu, Impala, Blue Wildebeest and Warthog on the menu. Loads of media to be taken on the trip!

    Just making my formal "hello" before sharing thoughts and comments, good to be here!

    I gotta be honest, I haven't STOPPED reading and studying the hunt, shot placement, behavior, trophy gauging ect. It's hard to focus on anything else!

    Welcome Jesse! June 2 is a great time to fulfil a dream thats the time frame I choose last year My Birthday and as it turned out most of the animal in RSA are in the Rut at that time, and like our whitetail it makes it a little easier to spot them. Good Luck on your hunt.

    Take your time enjoy the hunt look the game over and be selective on your hunt...your first animal will always be your first...so make it count...

    Be sure with all the media you have to post some pictures on your return...

    Welcome you'll like this site. 35 days before we leave for RSA as well. Picking up a few last minute things and trying to another 50+ rounds through both of my rigs before I leave.
