Hello everyone- I have been lurking off and on for several years and just recently actually joined. I'm in my mid/late 40s, wish I was hunting for a living (but not unfortunately) and have been to SA three times (2007, 2009, 2015). Although I have a real job, I do manage to be a part time hunting guide for whitetail deer and exotics here in my home state of Texas and also do taxidermy. Although I don't really run a taxidermy business per se , apparently I am very good at it as people come seeking me :) One day I'll get around to posting up my most recent and most successful trip to Africa. I want to go other places other than SA but to date haven't been adventurous enough to expand my comfort in doing so. I have enjoyed the articles here and wish I had read the "what to know" items before my 1st trip !!!! Hopefully I'll be a valuable member of this site and will contribute as much as I take .
Thanks so much

I hear ya Brickburn- good news is it already written as I did a Shutterfly book upon my return. I might need to shorten it for posting as it's a 1 hr read LOL.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
