I am a new member who has been lurking in the shadows of Africa Hunting.com for quite some time.
My wife & I recently booked a trip with Marius @ KMG safaris for May 29th-June 7th of 2019.
I started hunting with my Dad at the age of four years, it has been my passion since then for the last 51 years. Each fall finds me in Newfoundland hunting moose in September, then it's deer hunting in NY from November through most of December. I am employed by a large hunting/firearms retailer, a Barnes Advisory Staff member and avid shooter and reloader.
We are excited to finally fulfill a lifelong dream of hunting Africa with Marius and his team.

Welcome to Kec and wife! Marius and KMG have a great reputation. And was fortunate to meet Marius at the last AH dinner in Dallas during DSC, which should be on your list to do for next January also. I hunted with Pawprint on my first trip over and am going back this July. We have many outstanding outfitters on this site. And with the previous moose hunts you have had, you already have stories to share with us!

Good luck and enjoy Africa...you are going to love it!

KEC, glad to have you here. We’ll be waiting for your 2019 pictures and report on your hunt with KMG! You’re going to have a grand time I’m sure and I’ll be anxious to hear when you’re going back! Africa is a very addictive trip!

Welcome aboard KEC. Yours is an impressive intro. / bio. You are going to fit right in with this crowd. What will you be hunting with Marius? What rifles will you be taking? Will your wife be hunting as well or going along as an observer? Do you have any stories and or photos of previous hunts that you'd like to share with us? BTW there is a Bullet Performance Data Base where you can share your results/experiences.

Thank You Sir.
I will be hunting Kudu, Gemsbok & Zebra and would like to add a fallow deer if time/chance permits. My wife is going as an observer but I hope she would like to take a couple animals of here own. She started hunting with me a couple years ago and has taken bucks both opening days with me by her side. 31 years of marriage and she finally gave in! I shoot a Cooper 52 300 Win mag mostly but have been working on a load for an older Sako Finnbear 338 WM. I am hoping to try out the Sako on moose this year and probably leading towards it for Africa with 225 gr TTSX bullets.

Does your wife use the 300 Win Mag. as well? I used Barnes 225 Gr TSX bullets in my 35 Whelen for my first African hunt.
I load my own and they may have been traveling a little faster than most. All shots on Waterbuck, Gemsbok and Blue Wildebeest were pass throughs. None of them traveled more than 40 yards. Two didn't make it half that distance. No follow up shots were required.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
