I've finally decided to take Jerome's advice for some of us lurkers to post something. I've been a member on AH for several years but have never posted anything because...well frankly I had nothing to post!! I must say though that a day doesn't go by that I don't log onto AH and learn and live vicariously through the posts. I don't think you realize how many of us there are out here who get so much benefit from the info on this site. I've also gotten off my rear and become a member of SCI and a sponsor of this site. Thanks you so much Jerome and Brickburn for all you do for this site and I'm proud to support it. I've been blessed to have visited Africa (Botswana and South Africa) but never to hunt. I grew up hunting with my father but got away from it as an adult- I guess life gets in the way sometimes. I've recently started target shooting with a compound bow and hope to start hunting with it soon. I turn 50 in 3 1/2 years and my goal is to take my now 7 year old son on a father/son hunt to Africa to celebrate. In the meantime that bag target in my backyard is looking a lot like a big kudu- I better go get him!!

Thank you so much for coming out from behind the scenes! I really enjoyed your first post and I hope we will get to hear more from you. As I have said in the past there is a large community of AHers who have never posted but come to the site regularly I'm glad that you took the time to introduce yourself. Thanks for the appreciation and support!

:S Welcome:

Welcome H50! I first got the urge to hunt Africa at the ripe old age of 49, and once in the blood . . . been there 7 times since. You just have to decide you want to do it. And it's a lot easier to get the wife to agree if you tell her it's two years (let alone 3.5) away - mine said sure, whatever, thinking it would never happen. When I told her two years later that I had the tickets, she had to be gently reminded she had agreed!

Thank you everyone for such a warm welcome!! :) This is just such a tremendous site and resource. I will definitely be more involved and when it comes time for my African hunting adventure it will definitely be with someone who supports this site. Hank- I love your advice! I think you gave me a nice little dinner conversation to have with the wife tonight- "Honey pass the chicken and oh! by the way I've been thinking about a nice trip to take the family on in a couple years...;)- I think it just might work!

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
