Hi. My name is James. I am from Shetland, a tiny island in the North Sea.

After being in Namibia for a month last July/August with friends I am more fascinated with Africa than ever before and cannot wait to return. No easy task coming from Shetland.

Here at home I enjoy shooting as much as I can, wildfowl in the winter then I focus more on the rifles and reloading in the summer.

While we were in Namibia I was lucky enough to do some hunting with friends of our friends and enjoyed every minute of it. We travelled around and did a lot of camping, the kids loved it. I hope we dont have to wait too long before we can return and get that red sand in our boots again.

Dear James,
Welcome to the forum!

I am fascinated with Namibia as well, after doing 2 safaris there in 2017 and 2018.
Tell us more of your trip, especially of camping and travelling around!

Hunters usually stay in hunting camp, bungalows, etc... and camping around sounds very interesting!
Thanks!

Welcome James, Shetland is that where those small horses come from? Love to see a hunting report from your trip to Namibia, it will probably be my first African hunting destination in a few years.

Welcome @James Adamson !

I worked on a project in the part of the North Sea affectionately known as "West of Shetland," which as I am sure you know has some of the fiercest sea conditions on Earth. I can understand your interest in Namibia!

Been there and done many tanker loading ops, gives "bad weather" a new meaning. Luckily the sea comes down quite fast when it stops blowing.

Here at home I enjoy shooting as much as I can, wildfowl in the winter then I focus more on the rifles and reloading in the summer

I would love to hear more about shooting in the Shetlands!

Welcome aboard James Adamson. What did you hunt in Africa? Did you use your own rifle(s) or rent them from your outfitter" Please share your experiences with us. Who knows you may answer a question that someone who has never been was about to ask.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
