Well about time I make it to Africa, been wanting to go for years but always say next year, so I sure I ask all the standard newbie questions lol. I had a great hunt in New Zealand couple years ago so looking forward to planning a plains & buffalo hunt with all you guys help.

So anyone want to trade a airboat ride for hunt (just a joke) but I am avid airboater, hunter & fishing so I only work to feed my habit and maybe the wife & kids. I guess no helicopter hunting like with Shane Quinn in the alps of NZ. lol

:D:D:D:D

Welcome to AH Bigun! Africa is a great place to hunt, have fun planning it as that is half of the fun the other half is the new friends you'll make and the animals you'll hunt.

Enjoy your planning process for your potential safari since it is huge part of your safari.
You either hate or love Africa...
If you determine after the first two days in Africa that you love Africa and want to return to Africa, adjust your wish list accordingly to have "reason" to return to Africa...
More than 80% of our clients return to us for a follow up safari because they love being in Africa so much!

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.
