Greetings everyone. I have been watching this site since last fall (when I met the Chicago chapter president of the SCI in Saskatoon with me on buisness and him coming back from goose hunting). I am an avid (or as much as work allows) upland bird hunter, and like waterfowl and big game hunting as well. I plan to join the local SCI chapter shortly and will hopefully run into some of you in the future. Am also currently shooting for my first trip to Africa by 2021 or 22!

Welcome aboard Frank. Rest assured that we'll all be supporting your decision to hunt Africa. In fact you might even find us "pushy" at times. BTW we'll also help you make up your mind on that new rifle you'll need for your hunt. On the other hand if you are looking for restraint, we'll be no help at all.

Welcome Frank! Nothing like AH for information and getting people on their way to Africa.

Am also currently shooting for my first trip to Africa by 2021 or 22!

We would be happy to assist you in anyway possible.

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.
