    Thanks for accepting me on Africahunting.com. I am from South Africa. I mostly hunt in the Freestate and Northwest Provinces. I recently qualified as a ph but still hang on to my day job though. Currently I am mostly involved in the calling of Jackal where populations needs to be controlled especially on sheep and game farms. In the past I really enjoyed your forum as a resourse on larger calibres and dangerous game by experienced people who dont only talk teoretically!

    Thanks!

    Welcome aboard David. AH is an excellent source of information related to all aspects of hunting. Spend some time reading older posts and or articles of interest. What kind of rifles and calibers do you own? Are you thinking about becoming a full time PH or continuing to do it along with your day job?

    Thanks for saying Hi Shootist43! My largest calibre rifle is a CZ 550 Safari Classic in 375 H&H and my smallest calibre is an CZ in .22LR. I also have a 7X57 Musgrave build on a Brno Action and a 6.5 Creedmoore and 22-250 Rem Howas I use for longer distances and Varmint shooting. Last but not least I have a 12 Guage Zoli o/u Shotgun for birds. I also love Wingshooting especially waterfowl! I also have some handguns, I used to be a Close Protection officer in a previous life. I would love to be a full time ph if things develop in that direction. Unfortunately it doesn’t happen overnight!

    Calling Jackal always remain a challenge which makes it worthwhile! Do you do any calling?
