What a great website! I've hunted a lot here in the West and Canada (although I am still looking for moose and mountain goat). I am planning a plains game hunt in South Africa next year, and hopefully a buffalo hunt the year after that. If I am not hunting something (big game, predators, waterfowl, upland game) or fishing, then I am shooting, reloading, or tying flies. And if I am not doing those, then I am probably reading about it!.

My wife thinks I lost my mind decades ago.

But she's still with you and that's what counts. While I grew up on the east coast, I prefer to think of myself as a displaced Idahoan who lives in Phoenix now. Completely in a state of turmoil not presenting a PMD to a wary trout this time of year. Welcome to AH!

Welcome fellow Coloradan! Enjoy. I too was an Africa virgin. Just got back from Namibia and I can tell you it was fantastic. You'll become an addict.

Well don't worry about what your wife thinks. Mine says my brain is on a different planet!

Another from Colorado here! Welcome. Made my first trip to RSA last year and heading back in September. I'd say you've got a good plan going!
My plan is to return every year I can. At nearly 70 that may not be too many. Guess I started a little late.

Welcome aboard. What caliber rifles do you own? Plains Game hunting in Africa is a "hoot." Nothing like it in the States. Have you already booked your hunt with an outfitter? What animals are you planning on taking?

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Nelson. Is this message a PM format. I want to send you my email, but don't know if this is the cirrect way to do it. I'm at <pappas@mtaonline.net> Send me an email with your phone and I will call you about a skull I have. I went to school in Boston and am from Bernardston in the west part of the state. Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.
