    Africa...are there other continents to hunt?
    Kind of like the "you might be a redneck".
    I thought it might be fun to have "you know you are a safari addict when:".

    I'll get it started.

    You know you are a safari addict when:

    You compare other hunting trip prices to an african safari.
    For example - "hmm $4,500 for a mule deer hunt....i could go to Africa for that!"

    You know you are a safari addict when you name your dog safari!

    When you picture shot placement on animals while walking the zoo with your children.

    When you search the internet for Land Cruisers.

    When you take out a second mortgage on your house so you can go on another safari.

    That pretty much sums up my thought! (lol)

    There is not a day that goes by that I don't think or want to be in Africa!

    When your six year old can name every animal on the wall and the ones in the photo album.

    When your wife has you re-do the entire livingroom in an African theme so you can display your mounts. God I love her.

    When you order a burger instead of a steak at a nice dinner out as "every dollar adds up" and could be better spent in Africa.

    when your guilty of all of the above except naming your dog safari.

    How bout this
    When you go to sci vegas and after the convention you play roulette and set your minimum table bets at 1 warthog, 2 impalas, a kudu, and a nyala.


    No joke. I bet a kudu and a nyala on the 2nd of 3 and 1 warthog and 2 impalas on black! I hit both. tehehehehehehe! then walked away. was thinking about going back and betting one leopard but thats just too much stress!

    I was thinking if I hit again I could double down my leopard and if I won I could cash in for a bongo. Try to explain that to the cashier!

    When your wife thinks she caught you looking at x rated pics on the net late at night, but when actually you're looking at trophy pics. (and I haven't even been to africa yet!)

    When you price everything by trophy fees. For example: recent repairs to my POS car nearly cost a Lechwe. Are you kidding me, that dress cost us a duiker?

    That reminds me of another one. When you try to get 'just one more year' out of your POS car so you can afford a Buffalo.

    A Dream can be relived again and again in Africa.
