Hello AH members,

Greetings from a resident of the currently cold and rainy Kentucky. I have been reading AH posts/articles for a while and decided to finally join.

About me:
I have been an avid outdoorsman since before I can remember (first squirrel shot when I was 3). I have hunted in Kentucky, Virginia, Missouri, and Arizona (I have also lived in all of these places). I have not hunted in Africa yet, and have only briefly visited Morocco.

My favorite hunts to date: AZ archery elk, self-guided mountain lion

Dream Africa Hunts:
1- Elephant
2- Leopard (was #1 until I chanced across AH)
3- Gemsbok/Oryx (I saw one free range in New Mexico and have been fascinated ever since)

Current stable:
300 wby, 30-06, 270 win, 30-30, 12 ga (3 1/2), & my PSE StingerX (bow)

I am looking forward to my time here!

Welcome! You found the right place to learn about hunting Africa. I reside in Northern Kentucky, and have one South African hunt under my belt. Hoping to return soon.

Thanks Aegis, I am down near Lexington. I have learned way more here than I would have expected, and I am looking forward to my first trip when I am ready(ish).

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).
