    Hi , I am off to Africa for the first time in two months and cannot wait, Going to Zim and SA actually and only hunting plains game for now. I have hunted a few other countries plus plenty of Australia but like most everyone there has always been the lure of going to Africa and now I am counting down the days.

    Hopefully i can learn a bit here and I am looking forward to sharing the journey with people like myself

    Cheers

    Patrick

    Hi ethan, I know where you're coming from. I'm still some time off, but all I can think of is the trip. I said to my wife, "I'll be sad when the trip is over." She said, "You can always go back again." What A WOMAN.
