SCI, DU, PF,
I've been a lurker here for several months and decided to finally become a member of the site. I would say I accidentally came upon the idea of hunting Africa within the last year. I was looking for an M70 in .375 H&H, and came across one in .416 Remington. Ended up not purchasing, but the thought process went on. Did some more research, acquired a 20" barreled Savage in .375 Ruger (future .300 PRC, I think), but shortly after thought about the .416 more and ended up getting a .416 Rigby not too long after.

I have really only hunted in Illinois, so shotgun, rifle, and revolver, but have really been kinda bitten by the Africa hunting bug (luckily no trypanosoma here), so I have definitely put that on my future list. Nice meeting everyone and look forward to perhaps being to contribute to the taxidermy section before we all know it.
Welcome. Champaign Count being represented here. If you have any questions on locations I can comment on SA, Zambia and Uganda. All fantastic. All very different.

I'm pretty open to hearing various experiences sometime, since I'm still a pretty clean slate in terms of safari.

I have been trying to eat up some books right now, although I've been a little slow. Like many a person in the past, I am working on Horn of the Hunter right now, but I've gone through one of Craig Boddington's books as well.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
