Hey guys! Just thought it would be interesting to hear where everybody started with their passion that is hunting. Mine started when I was 8 my dad bought me a windbuks "air rifle", everyday after school I would go out and shoot birds and come back just before dinner time. I started "real" hunting when I was 11 .. My first animal was a gemsbok with a .243 and what a day that was. I remember thinking that it felt better than scoring a winning try in a game of rugby....and nothing has changed. For me there is no better feeling than being in the bush and doing what I love. Looking forward to reading your story!
