Greetings from Beautiful North Alabama, USA. A little about myself to start. I am employed as a program manager for a defense contractor in Huntsville, Al. I am married for 47 years and nearing retirement. I have 3 married children and 8 grand children who live west of St. Louis, Mo. I have been hunting and shooting and reloading since I was 15. The late Joyce Hornady (Hornady Bullet Company) helped me to learn reloading in the 1960s when I lived in Grand Island, Nebraska. I have hunted over most of North America including Alaska and Canada and some in Europe. I have a friend who is an outfitter for African hunts and have initially scheduled a plains game hunt for early 2011. I hope to learn much from the experiences of the forum members in the next few months. Glad to be a part of the forum.
Blessings to all,

Paul

Welcome to AH Paul! Glad you decided to join. Where did your friend set you up on your plains game hunt?

Hunt is not totally set up yet. As I understand it will be in South Africa. I talked to him last night and he is sending me information, i.e., contracts, prices etc. I should know more in a few days. At this time it is a 1x1 with my wife going as observer. Menu is plains game with possibility of buffalo if price is right. My priorities are kudu, wildebeast, impala and warthog. Don't know how much I can stuff into 7 days, but I will try.

Welcome Paul, sounds like you'll have the time to spend here on AH, and time it takes. Something I don't have much of. But the time I do spend here is very informative and friendly, enjoy.

Good luck with you planning of the hunt. Africa is kick ass hunting. I will be heading to Namibia and then returning to SA for the third time this Sept./Oct. I will be hunting 18 days.

Talk about addicted.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
