Go ahead and laugh now, get it out of your system! I've hunted Canada since I was old enough to hold up my own .22 - Moose, deer, elk, bears, antelope, caribou, sheep, goats, upland and wetland birds

I went on my first African Safaris last year.. should have heeded some good advice given to me before I left.

The Most dangerous hunt in Africa is the first one, cause after that you will never stop thinking about the next time you get to go!

Buddy and I hunted Okondura, in Namibia last year and we had a great time! Fantastic people, great food and way too much fun hunting! We shot Kudu, Gemsbok, Warthogs, Mountain Zebra, Hartebeest, and we went to the ocean for a day and caught a 125 Kilo Bronze Whaler shark!

Plan to use Africa Hunting to plan a water buffalo hunt in 2014!

I've learned a lot already from reading the different forums - thanks!

Welcome to AH. By the look of your list there it sounds like you are a fellow Albertan?

Never know.., might have been guided. :)
That list of species would suggest someone from out west.


Welcome to the Canadian cadre here on AH.

It is dangerous to go to Africa and hunt a first time.

Lucky you, I never had the chance to hunt there but I'm familiar with the base. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
