    Welcome to our forum Terry. Have visited your state three times, but never hunted there. Should have done so when I was much younger. Good luck with your African hunt for you and your daughter. You will love it there!

    @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 Terry Fuller, 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 Terry Fuller a picture of what to expect and more importantly welcome him to the forum.

    Hi Terri
    You mention that you are a avid Bow hunter. I see that as a perfect way to combine your and your daughters hunt.
    You can hunt together from a Bow blind, and if a desirable animal comes in for Her, she can always take the shot with a small caliber rifle, under controlled and calm circumstances, at least maybe for the first animal.
    Once the ice is broken we could Hunt on a stalk basis in the early mornings with her as the focus hunter and then sit at Water holes with you as focus with the Bow during the heat of the day . That way both of you share in one another's experiences.
    I would love to chat more via email if this interests you. info@spearsafaris.com.
    You would also be the only hunters in camp, so one on one focus on you and your daughter.
    Cheers Ernest

    No need for continued debate on this. As I said, my apologies if your meaning was misinterpreted. I just can't figure why you would need to mention that one would need to "get their head around" hunting a high fence property, or inferring that any destination besides yours is not a real or "unspoilt" Africa as you put it? You may not have intended offense, but that's how I read it.... Anyway, you are free to promote your outfit as you see fit. Best of luck to you sir!

    Hi Terry.
    Welcome to AH!
    We are a safari company in Namibia, and we take pride in hosting families in our camps.
    We have several hunting areas over Namibia, but the destination that will best fit your needs, is our camp called Panorama.
    Panorama is over 200,000 acres, and there are plenty of plainsgame species in very healthy numbers and great trophies.
    Your daughter will have the opportunity to help us cull animals during the hunt, when not hunting for trophy animals.
    You are welcome to email us at info@jamyhunt.com if you would like more information.

    Kind Regards,
    Kirsten

    Good Day Terry.

    Welcome to AH.

    Having 2 daughters of my own I know what precious and amazing time that would be hunting with your daughter, especially in Africa.

    There are great Outfitters here on AH that would make your safari memorable.Please also consider Tsala Safaris.We do specialise in family and friends safaris and take some time to read members feed back on us.

    Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need any info.

    Welcome to AH, for bang for your buck, and family orientated hunting South Africa and Namibia will be the best, For bow hunting I would say South Africa, has the best facility's and greater animal populations and variety. Good luck and hope to see you in the USA at our booth.

    Welcome Terry, and your daughter, to AH! Good for her wanting to go and good for you taking her!
    JMO, but I like having a couple of specific animals to focus on, then I like taking what ever Mother Africa offers!

    Thank you to all who have responded. Frankly, there have been enough who have reached out that I'm worried I'll have missed someone.

    I am recovering from surgery of a week ago. I'm not sharing that to generate any sympathy: it appears that it went well and will improve things moving forward. But I have been taking some pain killers and sleeping a lot... so if I haven't responded to someone, I assure you - it hasn't been intentional.

    Thanks again to those who have reached out; I am grateful. I am very uplifted from some conversations I've had that I can make something happen for my daughter and me, possibly by next summer. It has me very excited.

    Welcome aboard Terry. I've been waiting to see if you were going to divulge your daughter's age and what hunting experience she has. What caliber rifle is she comfortable shooting. A number of AH Dads and Grandfathers have settled on 243 Winchesters. I have my almost 9 year old grandson shooting a sporterized 6.5 x 55 Swedish Mauser. My aim is to get him hunting Whitetails with me when he is 10. So far he has been on several bow hunts and is very quiet while on stand.

    Shootist... I missed your comment yesterday. She is a small statured (right at 5') 16 year old. We've never put it all together yet, but she's been with me for caribou and moose a bunch. She loves to shoot and does very well at the range. She has something of a cast-iron shoulder; she's shot my 45-70 (hunting loads) at the range accurately. Her favorite is a Muddy Girl .243. For this hunt we're now planning on a .308. She is deadly with a 20 gauge on spruce grouse.

    A number of folks have extended a welcome. To each of you... thank you very much.
