Gidday All, My name is Geoff and I live in the city of Brisbane in Australia. Brisbane (pronounced "Brizz-Bin" in Aussie slang) is roughly in the middle of the east coast and is an hours drive north of our famous Gold Coast beaches. I have been fortunate to have hunted a lot of species that our country has to offer from rabbits and fox's up to the impressive Aussie Buffalo. I enjoy all types of hunting and I am a rifle loony at heart. My hunting buddy of over 35 years convinced me a year and a half ago that we should actually pull our finger out and organize an African hunt. With the minister of finances blessing (wife) we booked a hunt. So in seven days time both my wife and I with my buddy and his wife will be traveling to South Africa for our first plains game safari. Victor & Lindsay Watson at Karoo Wild Safaris will be looking after us for 12 days. I have found a wealth of information on this site in preparation for our trip over the last year and a half. Too all of you that have contributed to this site, I thank you. Looking forward to sharing my experiences with all of you when I return. Thanks for having me.
