    Hello,
    I've really enjoyed reading this site for a while now and thought that I'd stop in and say hello. I'm largely a whitetail hunter, mostly rifle with a Browning 7mm-08 lever action. I recently picked up a Lyman Deerstalker in the 50 cal option to take advantage of the late PA flintlock season. Realistically, I'm a year or two out from booking a trip to Africa. Until then I'll continue to enjoy the hunting reports posted here. You are all excellent at making me constantly change my mind about what I'd like to go after and where I'd like to go for my first trip.
    Thanks everyone

    Your timing is perfect to start planning your first hunt. Don’t dwell on all the many options you see because you will be returning as many times as possible. It’s really much more relaxing just picking a package, take some extra funds and then take what ever extra Africa offers on your trip. From then on, you’ll know how things work and you can be much pickier.

    Welcome to the forum.

    What Ridgewalker said is so true.... Most folks are planning their next safari before the first one is concluded. Welcome, and enjoy your research...!

    Welcome aboard Raider. PA is a tremendous place to hunt Whitetails. I like your choice of rifles as well. Back in the day I hunted PA with a Winchester 94 and shot a Thompson Center Hawken Rifle for the first time. Many years later I was introduced to the 7mm-08 in Mexico. You have lots in common with many of the folks here on AH so "join right in" on the fun. AH is the best site for educating yourself on all of the various options you have open to you for hunting there. Keep on reading for a while then decide what you would like to hunt, then go about researching which outfitter to use and what
    rifle(s) to use. The planning is all part of the fun. If at all possible try to talk one of your buddies into going with you. Read, enjoy and post!

    Just joined, myself. Looking forward to hearing about preparations for the trip. Being from PA, no reason not to have a remarkable flintlock in the collection!

    Best,
    Josh
