Hello to all. What a great site!

I'm new here and in the process of collecting data and researching outfitters for my first African safari. I'm a lifelong hunter here in North America and I've hunted deer (whitetail, blacktail and mule deer), elk, black bear, hogs and pronghorn on several dozen occasions. Recently, I've mostly been bird hunting as I raise a few class English Setters and have been devoting more time to them than big game hunting. However, I've decided my African dreams should wait no longer, and I'll be heading over in 2011 or 2012 for a plains game hunt.

More than likely I'll be hunting in Namibia but Limpopo, RSA is also a good possibility. I'd like to hunt wild game in their natural habitat and that will be the deciding factor in where and with whom I hunt.

I hope to learn from you fine folks and perhaps have a few "rookie" questions both tolerated and answered. Thanks for having me!

Hi seattlesetters, welcome aboard. It sounds like you're a 'lifelong die-hard hunter' like nearly everyone else here so I have no doubt you'll have a great time on your plainsgame hunt when it rolls around. In the meantime enjoy all the interesting posts on the forum.

Welcome. Say hello to my taxidermist friend, Buzzi Cook, for me if you bump into him up your way. Ditto for Jack Schwabland, if you know him.

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
