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!

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
