Welcome, you picked a great place to start your journey to Africa. Good luck in your search.
My apologies in advance if I am misinterpreting your meaning but it comes off as a veiled shot with a very negative inference to hunting with an outfitter who has high fence properties. I personally would have loved to have taken my family to hunt "un-spoilt" Africa, but the cost and added expenses of connecting flights and adding in extra travel days was way out of my budget. If it was not for the options that were offered in South Africa, we would have never had the chance to have done a family safari at all. Africa in general is an amazing destination with lots of options for almost any budget. No need in my opinion to slight one over the other. I'm sure you operate a wonderful outfit and the best of luck in your endeavors. If I ever hit the lottery, I will be in touch.
@BSO Dave, you are definitely misinterpreting my meaning! There is no "veiled slight" in what I said and the fact that any hunter would choose to hunt a fenced area is 100% his own personal choice. As I said to Tundra Tiger, he has the whole spectrum to choose from and budget is of course a big factor in making a decision. I would also be happy to have this debate on another platform but in the meanwhile wanted to give Tundra Tiger a picture of what to expect and more importantly welcome him to the forum.
Hello to all from the northern shores of Bristol Bay!
I am, I suppose, like a lot of folks: dreams of Africa someday... and then you realize the years have skipped past pretty fast, and it's time to start thinking on acting.
I have lurked as a visitor for a number of years, popping in when I was curious about something specific.
My reason for finally signing up is I'd really like to get serious about putting together a trip for myself and my 16 year old daughter. I have hunted my whole life, most of it in AK, and have had decent success over the course of my life on caribou, moose, brown bear and black bear. My daughter is still fairly new to hunting but does well with any gun I give her at the range. In addition to looking at what's posted if folks have suggestions on great places to look for a dad/daughter destination, I'd be happy to listen.
