I am fairly new to this site. My name is Ed Bergen. I am from the province of Saskatchewan in Canada. I am excited about going on my first safari to South Africa this summer. Myself and my boys will be bowhunting with Dare to Bowhunt. I am gaining a wealth of knowledge on this site thanks to all of you who have been there and done that! Hopefully in the future I will be able to help others like you are helping me!

Welcome Ed.
I think your moniker "riders" refers to the rough riders football club. I won't make any comments after the beatings that you gave our bombers in the last couple of seasons.
I'm sure you already know this, but I feel compelled to mention it anyway. South Africa is one of the most diverse and beautiful countries in the world. Make sure that you leave a little time for touring.Not just the game parks but as much of the country as you have time for. The people are as amazing as the scenery.
Good luck on your first safari, I know it won't be your last.
Cheers, Mike Egan

Welcome to A/H Ed.

You will have a great time with Lammie and Allison Potgieter. I know them personally and Lammie is a great outfit. Who knows we might even meet each other when you are hunting with them.

Thanks for all the greetings! I look forward to everything this site has to offer. I have been conscientously studying the different shot placements featured on African animals and my boys aged 16 and 17 are marking the days off the calendar until we leave. Also, you are right Mike, it is the Riders. Our hunt dates are worked out around home games!( but I'm sure that once we arrive in Africa, football will be the last thing on our minds!) We will get to see a little bit of South Africa as some of our hunt with Lammie and Allison is in the Kalahari and some of it is in Zululand.

We just returned from our bowhunting safari today. The hunt we had was excellent, with some great animals being taken. It was awesome seeing rhinos, giraffes etc. 3 yards from the front of the blind. I am already looking forward to having some great trophies on the wall and someday returning to Africa. Lammie and Allison run a great outfit called Dare to Bowhunt. you can do a search and check out their website. I would not hesitate to recommmend them, especially if your looking for a monster nyala! Thanks to our other PH as well, Neil was also great!

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
