Hello everyone,

I have been following AH for a while and have finally decided to join. I want to say thank you to everyone for all of the advice and great information that you post on here. It has been so helpful.

I am headed to South Africa for my first Safari in August and I am pretty pumped up. I am hoping this is the first trip of many but I am looking forward to sharing stories and getting more info on AH.

Nice to meet everyone!

The more you hang out here the more you are going to see just how much there is to hunt.

Welcome to the posting side.

You have likely read some hunting reports in preparation for writing your own.
Remember to post it on your return. :)

Nelson. Is this message a PM format. I want to send you my email, but don't know if this is the cirrect way to do it. I'm at <pappas@mtaonline.net> Send me an email with your phone and I will call you about a skull I have. I went to school in Boston and am from Bernardston in the west part of the state. Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
