    Hello,

    I'm not sure where to start, I've never really been a member of a forum before. I guess I should introduce myself, I simply go by Riggs, it's my last name. I'm 20 years old and I have a career in the HVAC (heating & air) field. I've got ambitions to go to Africa to hunt the Big Five, I already hunt quite a lot in my home state. I love hunting and fishing. I joined this forum, because I figured it'd be a great place to get an idea of how or where to get started, at least a general direction in a sense, as how to go about traveling to/hunting in Africa and get knowledge from people that have experience doing this.

    Have a blessed day.

    - Riggs

    Welcome Riggs! Glad you found AH. Check out Safari Guide at the top of the page for tons of info! If you can’t find answers, or want more info, just ask and someone here probably either knows the answer, or can help you find the answer.
    Enjoy!

    Welcome To AH Riggs. A lot of great info here and a great place to start planning your first (or tenth) safari. Be forewarned... Africa is addictive.

    Welcome to AH Riggs. AH is certainly the right place to learn about everything related to hunting in Africa. What have you hunted already? Do you have any stories or Photos of those hunts you are willing to share? Where did you get your desires to hunt from? What kind and caliber rifles do you own?
