As a new... well just becoming an active member to AfricaHunting.com I wanted to share my first impressions of our blog. Many times in life and over a long career in management I’ve come to seek out opinions of those sans the “rose colored glasses” to help remind me of the “why” an organization has value to its members/ share holders/ constituents. So for what it’s worth, and despite “preaching to the choir” here is mine.
First, I quickly developed a stong reverence for AHs long and well documented history, which goes a long way in answering repetitive questions so common on other blogs. I enjoy the members dedication to the subject matter, and the way in which members/Adm respecting one another’s view points, while not trying to create a bloody “safe space” to shield difference of opinions! And most importantly the literal “Who’s who” of memberships representing today’s most influential African PHs, dark continent Hunter naturalists, and subject matter experts who freely share their experiences and expertise to the general members!
BIG Congratulations for a job well done, keep up the good work, I look forward to learning from our amazing members on a subject near and dear to my heart! I’m also excited to contribute, and share my varied experience in hunting, optics, and dangerous game rifles, God bless
Cheers!
J.Fortuna

Welcome aboard!

If I might just add to that, the moderators for this forum seem to really be on top of their game. I think it's a very big reason this forum is so popular with it's members.

I know I know @35bore, suck up. ;) But it's true in my book

Again welcome aboard and please share your stories.

Julius, thanks for starting to participate! The more people with differing experiences, the more valid the site becomes for me, IMO. Looking forward to more of your experiences.

Welcome! And I agree with your assessment. I have learned a great deal from AH starting several years ago when I was doing online research for my 2018 hunt in South Africa. I found valuable advise on rifles, hunting gear, how to work with my PH, etc.

hey, I'm also new here, however I'm not that talented and smart to write such long introductions. Just saying that I'm happy and excited to be a member of such community!

@Julius Fortuna Welcome julius. I'm looking forward to your input. A well written introduction leads me to believe we could see some welcome interaction with you on various topics. Glad to have you join us.
@JoanneUnderwood I don't think many of us care if you're talented or smart enough to write a long introduction, as long as you post your pictures! (I thought I'd may as well be the first to say it! LOL)
I'm teasing you....... :A Wink: I'm sure you'll have some valuable input on here too! Looking forward to hearing what you have to say!

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
