Royal27, I probably don't have any exciting storys to talk about. After reading so many African safari hunting stories, hunting in Germany sounds a little boaring. Nothing bites back except the wild boars, and when we are 2+ meters above the ground in a high seat, it is pretty safe. One goood point is that I work at a military training area that has about 4000 Red Deer that run wild. The only animals I have hunted in Germany are Red Deer, Roe Deer, and Wild Boars. I hope to make an African safari hunt one day, so I just purchased a rifle in .375 Ruger, and I am preparing for a hunt.
Welcome to AH Craig! feel free to post some pics and a sample of the test that has to be passed to get Your Jagdschein they should get a kick out of that if its anything like the test I had to take back in the 90's. Enjoy the site.

Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
