Hi there! Just stumbled on this great forum a few days ago and thought I'd join up. I've been dreaming of hunting Africa for quite a few years now and had planned to go in 2015 but the opportunity to move to Alaska came up in 2014 so Africa was put on hold. I've just begun to plan for a trip for the wife and I's 20th anniversary next year which brought me to AH.

Welcome to AH, sir and congratulations on your upcoming anniversary. Just celebrating my 10th anniversary today.
If you need any assistance in planning a trip for you and your wife, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Take Care,

Hello highcountrybulls,

One sourdough to another, welcome to the best forum in the world.
I live in Los Anchorage.
If you live here in the big city as well or, if not and you find yourself visiting Anchorage sometime, do let me know and I will be happy to tell you what little bit I know about Africa.

You will notice that I work for Khomas Highland Hunting Safaris, Namibia.
Needless to say, I am biased toward my employer's Safari Company.
And, if true free-range hunting (no game fences, yearly animal migrations, etc) at a shockingly affordable price is of interest to you, please feel free to contact me with any questions.

But, no matter who you decide to book with, I can tell you what to look out for, before you plop down your deposit.

Cheers,
Paul (Velo Dog)

Welcome aboard highcountrybulls. AH is the best site you'll find for planning an African hunt. There are lots of outfitters that are sponsors of AH and they will no doubt be contacting you. Does your wife hunt, or will she be coming along as an observer. "Package" hunts for Plains Game give you the best bang for the buck. What kind and caliber rifles do you own?

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Nelson. Is this message a PM format. I want to send you my email, but don't know if this is the cirrect way to do it. I'm at <pappas@mtaonline.net> Send me an email with your phone and I will call you about a skull I have. I went to school in Boston and am from Bernardston in the west part of the state. Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.
