highcountrybulls, welcome to AH! What a great 20th anniversary! Have you told your wife yet what she’s getting? Don’t think mine would go for it.

Wow, thank you all for the very warm welcome!
I'm looking forward to getting the details of the hunt put together over the next few months and learning as much as possible through the forums here.

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)

Thank you Paul. I'm in the Interior but we get down to Anchortown every now and again. I'll ping you next time we're down that way and see if we can get together. HC


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?

Thanks Shootist, My wife does indeed hunt and is a mighty fine shot I might add. We are pretty well covered when it comes to firearms calibers appropriate to Alaska and I'm quite certain they'd work well in Africa too. My current favorite is a Kimber Talkeetna that I've done some personalizing on.

Welcome to AH highcountrybulls! Where are you heading and what are you after?
Thank you AH, my first inclination is Namibia but I've not finalized any details yet other than we're for sure going over next year for our anniversary.

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 the forum highcountrybulls. We will gladly assist in turning you African dream to reality. No better way to celebrate your 20th anniversary than a visit to our beautiful and diverse Namibia!

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
