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.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?
