Hey guys,

I'm Cody. I've been following this site for a month or so and I can't tell you enough how great it is. I'm 21 originally from Wisconsin, I've spent the last 3 years in Kentucky thanks to Uncle Sam. I grew up hunting, thanks to my late father, on family farms. I haven't been fortunate to spend alot of time in the mountains or travel outside of the states yet. I have a deployment coming up next year and my hopes are to book a hunt upon my return... Possibly as a honeymoon but I don't know how the other half would appreciate it!

I've been intrigued and inspired by a lot of hunters. One day I'd love to become a PH and I've been researching the topic quite a bit. I've seen that there's a few Americans who've done this. It's a dream, that's for sure.

Have a good day!

Welcome to AH.

If you think your bride to be might not like to go on a hunting trip with you I can assure you that she will not be thrilled with you being a PH. It's a lifestyle choice!

Stay safe and have fun planning your hunting adventure.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!

I've thrown ideas towards the lady about future plans and she really doesn't have a problem! She loves the traveling aspect. She gets just as excited when I get the chance every so often.

My parents honeymoon was muley hunting in Wyoming and trout fishing haha.

If anything I have a couple more years left in the service and then I'll get out and finish school. The plan is to do a booked hunt and attend a PH school during summer breaks. And comeback every summer. We're both trying to pursue careers that'll support the way we want to live but eventually Id like to work six months and spend the other six in Africa like Capstick mentioned in his book.

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA

Does anyone know where to buy a chamber reamer to convert .458 win to .458 Lott? I hear it is very easy to do—?
