Hello everyone,

I am Bruce and i am in north east iowa. I own and run an auto repair shop along with building wet tumbling systems for cleaning cases.

I joined today to start planning my first african hunt and this looks like the place to get a lot of answers.

I have the opportunity to go on a hunt in Namibia with someone that has been hunting in africa a few times so i couldnt pass it up.

I am looking forward to learning the what to and not to do stuff. thanks in advance

Welcome to AH Bruce! You've come to the right place if it's africa hunt your wanting to know about then Africahunting.com is the place to be. Who are you and your friend planning on hunting with?

I just got the offer last friday before he left on vacation don't know any specifics yet till he gets back later this week just know namibia right now. I don't remember who he has hunted with in the past. He is delivering a gun to one of his customers -- he is a gunsmith --- the gentle man stayed with him over the summer and he didn't get the gun done in time. so he is headed back in june to deliver it and asked if i would like to join him.

I just couldn't say no to the chance of a lifetime.
