I was planning my first African hunting safari and my internet hopping brought me to this point. This website has been a dreamworld for me and I appreciate all of your input, especially the hunt report section. I've not hunted outside the USA yet but have done a fair amount of wandering within the states hunting everything from quail to elk. I've never been able to specialize and love shooting rifles, shotguns and my bow and all the offshoots they provide such as hand loading and fly tying. I am currently a full time firefighter\paramedic and on my off days I provide custom bird taxidermy under the business name: Firebird taxidermy. I've been obsessed with animals as long as I can remember and hope to see and collect my own menagerie while my knees are still strong. My wife tolerates this madness and a couple of my kids participate in it with me although they are still in their teenage years. One of my favorite trips to this date was in Utah's high uintah mtns, horseback in, camp, hike and fish with some good friends and family and culminating with the taking of a respectable goat. Hope to add many more adventures to the memory bank with many more amazing animals!
