Hello all. I've been reading over posts from this site for the past few months and finally decided it was time to join. I've not hunted Africa....yet....but am very appreciative the the massive amount of info all of you are able to share. I currently live in southern Maine (if any body has questions about Moose hunting up here I'd be happy to help) but I grew up in Pennsylvania and always enjoyed grouse and white tail hunting there. I'm looking forward to being a part of this community.

Welcome to AH Jonathan! What do you have in mind for your first African hunt? Glad you decided to join the conversation.
I'm thinking South Africa and plains game (kudu, wildebeest, bontebok, blesbok etc). I've poked around looking at various hunting opportunities and am too novice to be able to spot a good deal aka real deal vs. a too good to be true scam.

Welcome aboard! I'll be passing through your way in Oct to Jackman for grouse season, and again in November to Allagash for coyote/deer.
An African trip is truly a "once in a lifetime" experiance, until it become a "twice" then "third".......
You Must Go! Do it now, you won't regret it.

Glad to hear it! I'm also glad to hear you refer to grouse as grouse and not partridge. Of course by doing so you reveal that you are "from away". Jackman area is great for birds. I'm looking forward to spending some time this October near Oquossic/Mooselook for birds.

Yeah, I'm sure my "once" will become multiple. I'll just have to prove to my wife that multiple trips are "needed" to truly get the full experience! ;)

Welcome, Down East is my second home. Will be hunting Bear in 7 daze. With Eastern Ridge Adventures http://www.blackbearhunting.us
Thanks! A buddy of mine has hunted bear with Eastern Ridge Adventures for the past few years and can't say enough good things about them. You probably already know this but Maine is LOADED with black bear. Wildlife department is toying with the idea of allowing two bears per hunter in the not so distant future.

Welcome aboard Jonathan. We look forward to input from hunters of all stripes. Do you have any pictures and stories of Moose hunts that you'd like to share with us? What kind and caliber rifles do you own and or use? Do you reload?

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there

Wow, great response regarding the title of a thread and an amazing site.

I am interested in hearing about your wild lion hunts.

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
