Greetings to all from Alberta Canada.I was a little reluctant to join this forum but after browsing for the last couple of months I found it informative and people are not condescending like the previous outdoor forum here in Alberta I participated in [not naming it].The majority have no problem voicing there opinion about Hunting in Africa they called it canned hunting,I too had my reservations about it until I did my hunt .Like all hunting it was challenging same as home and I had a blast.The outfitter was professional and the service was bar none,been back 2 weeks and I have booked for next year already.Lol.I think I'm hooked.The warthog I took with bow as with everything was an expierence I will not forget but the pig was way cool.Lol.The wife too came along and well that was a mistake!I cant go back without her.Long introduction so i'll say hello to all once again.

Welcome to AH SAWBUCK!..... Ahhhhhhh.....the allure of Africa strikes again! Maybe someone should form a "Africa Anyonomus" for people like us.....Hello, my name is Wes and I'm an "Africaholic" :banghead:

Be sure and post a report once you get settled back in to the real world. Don't forget pictures!...LOL

Welcome to yet another Canadian! At some point I'm going to have meet some of you guys for a hunt for one of those big black bears you've got up north.

Please do post a report on your hunt with pictures. If you need help on how to post pics, there are plenty here who can help you with that.

I prefer to think of myself as afflicted with a mental illness that I've dubbed O.C.A.H.D. : Obsessive Compulsive African Hunting Disorder. Thankfully there is no known cure, hunting in Africa only goes to treat the symptoms.

Welcome to AH SAWBUCK! Glad to have you with us, Glad you and the wife had a great time looking forward to the story and the pics. Yes its a little more costly taking the wife along you never go alone again but thats a good thing. I can get up from the computer and tell the wife I just emptied the savings again and she just looks at me and says whens OUR hunt? Hello, my name is Bob and I'm an "Africaholic" with O.C.A.H.D. : Obsessive Compulsive African Hunting Disorder. :rofl:

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).
