My name is Andrew Short. I’m 32 years old and have always dreamed of hunting Africa. Ive been reading this forum for years and decided to join as I was recently given a “free safari”. More on that later!

This site has provided much information and I have no doubt that it will continue to do so!

Andrew, welcome to the AH forum! You should find most of the information you need here to help you on your first safari. I suggest you start your journey by going to the Safari Guide at the top of the page.
WARNING! Once you go, you will want to go back!

Welcome to the forum! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What guns do you have? How do you like to hunt? What African species are you most excited about hunting?

I grew up whitetail deer hunting and bass fishing. My father started taking me hunting at age 3, I shot at deer with 410/20 gauge shotguns as early as 5, finally took my first deer at 8 years old and haven’t looked back! I love to upland bird “bobwhite quail and pheasant” hunt as well. My father took the time to teach me how to hunt, track and be a woodsman! I very much appreciate that.

Well I have 53 guns total. Half belonged to my grandfather prior to him passing away. I love old rifles/calibers with history and allure such as the 404 Jeffery and Rigby rifles and of course all the doubles. , “although I’ll never be wealthy enough to own one of these.” I’m a big fan of the Ruger RSM rifles and will buy one when I find one with a tang safety. I currently no own any large bore rifles but do have several magnum rifles with a 300 bore.

I very much long to hunt Cape Buffalo but I don’t think that will happen on my first safari. I love the Sable, Gemsbok, and Kudu as they are my favorite plains game. They are beautiful animals!

Hello Andrew, welcome. I am from Africa and get to hunt a few times a year, but one day I would like to hunt in your beautiful country, elk in particular. I shoot 375 H&H, 375 Flanged and 30-30 Marlin. Read up on Africa and build the moment, it is special, but it needs all you special Americans to save hunting.

Kevin,

I hope you are able to come to the states and hunt Elk. It’s one of my bucket list trips as well!

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
