Hello,

I just joined this forum a few minutes ago, after finding it while looking for information on my rifles. My son is wanting to travel to Africa to hunt buffalo and a few of the plains animals - I am primarily interested in buffalo. We have some large game here in western Canada, but very little in the way of dangerous game. Our bears and the Wood Bison in the north are really our only dangerous game, and I don't believe they are in the same class as buffalo.

We hunt moose, elk and mountain sheep, as well as upland birds over our Springer Spaniels.

Welcome to AH, @Chucheeza. Its a pity that you are so far. We attend the Toronto Sportsmen Show every year. Would have been nice to catch up.
All the best with your research.

Take Care,

Welcome aboard Chucheeza. There is a ton of information available on AH. If you have a question about firearms, hunting, traveling taxidermy or anything related good answers are available. There is only one caveat, that is you must be willing to share your experiences and knowledge with others.

Hello Chucheeza,

Khomas Highland Hunting Safaris of Namibia, welcomes you to the greatest forum on earth.

Whether or not you book with Khomas Safaris (everything from elephant to dik dik and, not high game-fenced) or some other safari company, I will be very happy to discuss rifles, calibers, projectiles, scopes, iron sights and such related things with you, no worries.

Best regards,
Velo Dog

Welcome aboard fellow Cannuck. Lots of great up to date info on here as well as some very good deals from the sponsors. Prepare for some fun education.

Chucheeza, welcome to the AH forum! Personally in some respects I believe grizzlies are more dangerous than Cape buffalo. JMO&E
Oh yes, we need to see a picture of your little springer spaniel! They are fine upland dogs! There’s a thread on here by Johnnyblues where everyone puts a picture of their dogs.
You have come to the right place to plan your hunt in Africa. Tons of info and some exceptional outfitter/sponsors! Enjoy your planning!

Oh yes, my wife and I love visiting Western Canada! Beautiful!

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
