Greetings from the frozen north.

I'm a long time hunter from Canada, most of my hunting has been restricted to B.C and Alberta where I currently reside. I am at the point in my life where I am comfortable enough to start hunting abroad. It's been a dream of mine since I was a kid and I'm not getting any younger.

Anyhow I stubmled across this site and figured it would be a good place to meet some of those who have been there, done that and do some research.

Cheers,

It's an Canadian invasion.
Welcome to AH.

Good place to ask questions and there are certainly people here who have done it. Some admit it....

I'm up in Fort McMurray. I would love to hear how your trip goes and any tips you might learn along the way. I haven't been able to find a single person from this area that has been or is interested in going hunting in Africa hence the online search.

Best of luck on your trip.

Oh, there are some folks in the area that have hunted Africa.
Online searching is easier.

There will be a member heading up to your area to work shortly. PM me and I may be able to get you in contact so you can pick his brain.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Alot of great people and resources on this site. I've been filling my evenings reading the pre-hunt articles.

Great stuff, thanks for all of it.

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.
