    Welcome to AH AGO!
    Where are you going in RSA?
    Who is your outfitter?
    Do you have some specific game you plan to take?
    What rifle/cartridge are you using?

    Don’t forget to practice off of sticks!
    If this is your first trip, it won’t be your last.
    Best of luck!

    Thank you for the welcome
    I am very superstitious ,I waited 20 years for this and still worry that is not going to happen will give full report when I return
    Can't practice with sticks only from bench in the local ranges but have done a lot of shooting in "battue"in my life
    I hope that this is going to be the first of many !!

    If you have one you can always practice taking position at home or in your yard.

    AGO welcome to AH. I don't speak French or Italian, I'm curious what does "in battue" mean? Don't over pack, even though we all do the first time and take lots of pictures. I'll be looking forward to seeing your reports when you return.

    Practice here in Quebec is ...well how can I say ....surprising...you have to shoot from the bench...no standing position allowed ,and in most clubs you are not even allowed to put more than 1 round at a time in the rifle
