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!!
