    Welcome to the "club" NM Hunter! We are all addicts here, so we know the "can't get there soon enough" feeling, but I have to say that hanging out here with like minded hunters helps calm the beast.

    Jerome, I will call you! Definitely looking forward to seeing you and you wife again, she's awesome!! Maybe we can hang out again at the Rum Bouillons like last year... that place is a little crazy for a single girl without a chaperon or two or seven!!! :scared:

    frigatecdr, welcome to AH! You have found a great resource for planning your first hunting safari. I will be heading off on my "first" safari in a few months and have learned a ton here!

    Welcome ECHIV that sounds so exciting! Good Luck on your trip I hope everything works out for you and your family. I imagine that Tanzania is the ultimate African country for an avid huinter, what an awesome opportunity!

    Mark Sullivan kicked out of SCI

    Not my cup of tea, so he will not be missed by me. Watched part of one of his videos a while back and could not stand to even finish it! Too much ego and shmarm... ew! And I won't even start on the actual hunting or whatever that was called.

    Leopard hunting

    Thanks BillQuimby, that's a great suggestion for just about any species I suppose, but then you still should look into and research the outfitter too. I have heard too many tales of once great outfitters that have fallen from glory... especially in Zim sadly.

    Welcome DustyVarmint! Great moniker BTW. I too love the Bongo, I mean seriously even their name is cool! I think I read here someone refer to their stripes like white icing, now I always think about that when I see a picture of them. I just think they are the most beautiful of all of the African...

    Wrong Animal!! Now what?

    Do you notice how neither of the guys on the receiving end of the bigger Kudu and Bongo trophies aren't saying anything and are not complaining about the mix up! I wonder if they noticed that their trophies are significantly larger than before? What would you guys do if the tables were turned?

    Giant Forest Hog Hunt in C.A.R.

    Christophe, Wow, wow, wow that's all I can say! Your hunts just look so exceptional and exotic, your posts really make the idea of hunting in Central Africa seem less intimidating. What an extremely awesome post and pictures, I especially love how Peter Flack has brought to life your French...

    Some Thoughts About Trophy Hunting & Hunting Trophies

    Wow, this is such an excellent thread! Wish I had more time to comment but have already indulged in AH for too long today.

    Disciplinary Action Taken Against Outfitter Conducting Leopard Hunt with Hounds

    It is with great interest that I have been reading all of these posts from NAPHA... I have to say that I too agree with Safari Hunter, although I think that NAPHA is on the right track... why not announce the names of those outfitters or individuals who break the law, hunt illegally or who are...

    Zero Tolerance Policy for Misconduct and Ethical Violations

    Glad to know that NAPHA/Namibia is really working hard to promote and enforce ethical hunting standards. I for one feel better about hunting in a country that values its wildlife so highly. Keep up the good work!

    browningbbr, lots of interesting jerky products out there! Here are a couple of products for the avid handbag collector such as myself! (Not sure it's authentic) Haha, I'm sure Coco Chanel is rolling over in her grave! Loved all the great articles, amazing work.

    NAMIBIA: Buffalo Hunt In The Caprivi

    ikeda, I, for one, think it is important to let others know if you have had an extremely unfavorable experience. I personally would do my own research if I were considering this outfit and try to remain open minded, if I had just read one persons' account. However if I were to come across...

    Different kinds of Central African Savanna Buffalo

    Thanks Anton for this great post. I am hungry to learn as much as I can about hunting in Africa, I seriously can't get enough... it's become kind of an obsession! Anyway, your post was just excellent with all of the pictures, it makes me want to visit CAR. I went to look at your photo gallery...

    Leopard vs Bushpig

    Ownership in the bush, that is an interesting concept... I was wondering why she didn't just take that Kudu up a tree but I guess it could have been a moral decision as she may have been concerned about the consequences of stealing :bandit:

    Jackal Trophy Fees

    Skyline, I think it's pretty ridiculous too! They're vermin! Several years ago. I went with my father on a safari in RSA and I think he shot two or maybe three jackals and we just left the carcasses in the bush. At that time it was really shoot on sight, not a "trophy" of any sort, just a pest...

    Unique Trophy Pictures

    Frederik, yes that is also a really nice trophy photo of a zebra. I will try that one as well. I plan on taking both a plain and muntain zebra, will do one as a rug and I think the other as a "chess piece" pedestal mount, this picture kind of reminds me of that posture. I would be interested...

    What makes a "good" Professional Hunter?

    Enysse, I think you should do a hunting report on the place(s) that you went hunting where some of these things happened! Honestly, I've read a few of your posts where you have mentioned some pretty IMHO outrageous behavior from the PH/outfitter and I just want to make sure that I never book...

    This is definitely the year to hunt Africa

    Shallom, not only a poet but a composer too??? Or would that be a conductor? You know when most people use those terms, "blood and sweat" they can't really back it up, but in your case...:sweat:

    What makes a "good" Professional Hunter?

    Hey I have a good one, how about turning your cell phones off. It has not happened to me in Africa but stateside. What a pain when the cell phone rings at a very inopportune moment! Very unprofessional and can really ruin a hunt...:ssst:

Really had a lot of fun with this post, yes...
