Hello, all. You can call me Petey. New to AH, but have been doing a lot of searches through the forums.

Mostly, I'm a bird hunter (waterfowl and upland), and prefer side by sides. Also a wingshooting instructor through the Illinois DNR for their Youth and Women's Wingshooting Program.

I've become obsessed with going to Africa to hunt. The idea was originally planted by an ex-girlfriend. Now, I think I drive my wife crazy talking about it. Planning on a PG hunt in a few years (gotta save up the funds), but also want to return later for buffalo, and maybe other DG.

Thanks to you all for everything you share. It is quite informative.
