    Apologies for a late introduction, I've been on this site for a couple months gleaning info for a hunt next year in the East Cape, SA. This forum is an tremendous resource, I honestly wouldn't have been so eager to get my first safari booked without it. I've been reading some of the safari reviews this weekend, several long-time members pointed out the number of new members popping up and not giving out any info on themselves. So I wanted to rectify that.
    I love to bird hunt, go to Wisconsin every year for grouse and woodcock, Kansas for pheasant and quail. I share a deer lease in northern Kentucky with several cousins, usually nothing spectacular is seen but it's a great group of guys to hunt with. Not much else to say but thanks for advice given to my questions.
    Regards
    Ron

    Ron, welcome to the forum! Your hunting camp with your family sounds excellent! It doesn’t have to have giants to be a grand family experience. I’m envious!
    I too love upland hunting behind my old GSP. He and I have been fortunate enough to hunt from Montana to Texas and most states between. At 14 I’m not sure how many more hunts we have left together.

    A man and his dog is one of life’s best experiences! IMO

    Welcome to AH Ron. Looking at your profile, I take it you’re from the Cincinnati area. KY is turning out some big deer.
    You are correct that this is a great site for African hunting info.
    Congratulations on booking your first safari. There is nothing like a FIRST safari. Who are you booked with?

    Yes sir, Cincinnati it is! Worst part of Ohio for fishing and hunting opportunities!
    I'm hunting with Nick Bowker Hunting safari by Bedford, East Cape SA, next year in July.
    Good to see another Ohio guy on here!

    I appreciate the kind welcomes. This forum is obviously a class act. Rapidly becoming my favorite place to check out all things hunting.

    Thank you, Ridgewalker. I could only guess at how grand some of your bird hunts have been, and how many of them. I'm envious of that!
    The Brittany in my avatar is my best friend's dog, now 9 years old, finally slowing down but likely an even better hunter. Looking forward to another trip to northern Wisconsin in early October.

    Another displaced Kentuckian. Even better! Fort Thomas and Erlanger, KY for me until my Dad's workplace moved to northern Cincinnati in the late '60's. So you know about the magic breakfast meat, GOETTA, and Empress/Dixie/Skyline/Goldstar chili then!

    Welcome aboard Ron. You are correct in your assessment of AH. It is filled with knowledgeable hunters that are willing to share their experiences. If you still have any questions, just ask them.
