As a very seasoned hunter I am excited to find this forum so I can read topics and stories from people that share my passion. I am about 5 weeks away from my second trip to Africa and I can tell you I am very excited...
My first trip I joined a couple buddies that had experience hunting Africa but not the Eastern or Western Cape. I was told I was in for a treat going to the area we were headed for the first trip to Africa. I was not disappointed at all until I started paying the bills for the trip. Having planned to take 6 animals on a 12 day hunt I thought I would have my work cut out for me... Little did I know that I would be sending home 12 trophies and taking a total of 13 animals. Shortly before my trip in 2014 I met a gentleman that was going to the Eastern Cape the week after I returned. We stayed in touch through mutual friends and in Feb of 2016 was asked if my wife and I would like to join him and his wife and some mutual friends in a trip back to the Eastern Cape with KMG Safris. It didnt take alot of convincing to make our minds up. A quick email to Marius and a phone call to discuss some of the details and we were booked. Our trip is getting close and the pieces of the puzzle are falling into place to paint a much anticipated picture... A few weeks ago the group had the opportunity to go to Toronto and meet Marius and his wife Kim, thats when it really started to sink in for my wife. I am very excited to return, but I think my wife has a higher level of excitement knowing she will get to experience what she has seen in photos and videos from my first trip. I look forward to reading some info on hear and sharing with you my experiences...

John, I have two ex-wives that would argue with you calling me " gentleman " in your your introduction, funny they called me a lot of stuff, but never gentleman? Looking forward to hunting with you and the rest of our crew, come on May 9th.

Kurt,

I could have come up with many other things to call you but I figured I would clean it up a bit.... I had a blast on my first trip but I have a feeling this trip will be a completely different level of fun. I'm looking forward to hunting with the group and the extra days we are working in for sight seeing with the wives. The fishing day is one of the most anxiously awaited days for me on this trip... Can't wait is an understatement.

Welcome to AH. I too live in Michigan. You will find AH to be full of knowledgeable folks that are willing to share it with other like minded folks. What will you be hunting this trip? Will the "girls" be hunting as well?

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
