Have hunted on the East Coast USA all my life
Hi There all,

Im from North Carolina and just got back from my first trip to Africa with my wife (it was our Honeymoon). Anyways we both have fallen in love with the place and before we were even out of the bush we were planning our next trip back! Next time I go I plan on having a rifle or bow accompanying me for sure.

I have been a Whitetail hunter in North Carolina all my life and have had the chance to do a bit of hog hunting down in Florida the past few years and have been quite enjoying the more active hunt. When we were on safari in South Africa I knew in an instant that I would want to return again and again.

For now I think I will start with a Plains game safari but I would one day like to be able to chase a Cape Buffalo around. That's my goal to work for for the next few years. Have started reading some threads about calibers and what not on here and found some really good information so I figured I better join in.

Cannot wait to here some more stories and great advice!

Welcome to AH nchungryhunter! How lucky you are that your wife is such a good sport to take a huntingmoon in South Africa with you. Nice to hear that you have "fallen in love with the place"...

Ah! yes I can see I have already miss spoken on here. Our trip was strictly wildlife viewing. All the perserves we visited were nonhunting. The only things that had to worry about being killed at my hands were the other drivers on the roads for the first several kilometers I had the rental car for. It was still great though. Im considering it my scouting trip. Next time I will be hunting though for sure!

Welcome to AH nchungryhunter! You've already got a good start if your a whitetail hunter chances are you already have all the rifle your going to need for Plains Game. Enjoy the site and if you have any questions just fire away.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
