Hello guys and gals. Glad to be apart of this site. Looking forward to learning and seeing all about African hunting. The top of my bucket list items is hunting in Africa more than once. To tell alittle bit about myself. I basically have shot and hunted in eastern North Carolina since i was 5 years old. Anything from bear to turkey to whitetail deer. I have shot 3gun competitions and currently shoot long range sniper competitions with hits up to 2100 yards. I am 39 years old with a beautiful wife who i would like to take with me if practical on my first hun as a observer. I also have a 5 month old boy at home who is my sniper in training lol. I have watched and read a lot about Africa hunting and i think my preference is hunting a Cape Buffalo on my first trip But looking forward to learning an chatting with you guys. Thx in advance for any help or comments. Feel free to ask me any questions.

Welcome aboard Jonathan. What kind and caliber rifles do you own? Do you have any timeframe for your Cape Buffalo hunt? There are some good deals currently being posted, have you checked any of them out?

Hey shootist. Possibly looking to do the first hunt in 2021-22. Just bought a house so getting that settled this year. I have about one of every major caliber except the nitro expresses and the big dangerous game calibers(375hh etc), i have a good friend that has those and he said i could use anytime for a trip. I have 300 win mags, 28 nosler and things under that.

Jonathan, let me be the first one to "put a bug in your ear" for / about the 404 Jeffery. I never heard of it before joining AH, now I own two of them. After reading about its storied past and resurgence, that caliber has almost become a contagion.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Nelson. Is this message a PM format. I want to send you my email, but don't know if this is the cirrect way to do it. I'm at <pappas@mtaonline.net> Send me an email with your phone and I will call you about a skull I have. I went to school in Boston and am from Bernardston in the west part of the state. Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.

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.
