Hello,

My name is Chris and I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I got into hunting in 2011 and since that time, I look forward to Deer and Antelope hunting every year. I also hunt Elk, but not every year.

I joined this website/forum because a couple of weeks ago, my Uncle told me that he wants me to join him on a hunt to South Africa this coming April. I have never thought of hunting in Africa, which means I have never researched it. I have always thought the cost was too high, but upon starting my research I have realized it was not as bad as I thought.

I am looking at Blue Wildebeest, Impala, and Warthog (maybe others depending on how much I can save up). This forum has been extremely helpful so far. Since joining, I find myself "geeking out" and reading the discussions every day.

Stay safe,

Chris

Welcome to the forum. C-Springs is a beautiful place, and I had the pleasure to visit when I was in the AF.

Chris, glad you decided to introduce yourself. Tons of info on AH about hunting Africa. May I suggest you start under the heading “Info”, then “Safari planning guide”, and also “ shot placement”. Excellent info to help you on your Africa adventure!
Has your uncle already been to Africa?

Hello from Utah-only thing I would suggest is to be prepared to take your “list “ animals and then several more-always a big kudu or nyala popping up that will demand your full attention! Welcome aboard!

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there
