I'm from East Texas, the Piney Woods area more specifically. I've done some hunting in both Texas and Florida and none overseas. My wife and I are retired now and am looking into a trip to Africa. I've always thought going after Elephant and buffalo would be exciting and it looks like we now have an opportunity in 2018. We were at the DSC a few weeks ago and picked up some info on outfitters and discovered "agents". So we'll be asking questions as we go along. I've already spent time reading posting on this site and have learned a lot and even more important, what questions I need to ask the outfitter and agent.

Howdy and welcome.

You are welcome to attend the Pinewood SCI regional chapter. We meet in Nacogdoches ... normally on the second Tuesday. We have a number of members who have hunted Africa who would be happy to share their experiences. PM me if you are interested.

Hang out here and read a lot. You'll learn plenty of questions to ask and also whom to avoid, in some cases


Happy learning

Welcome!

Read read read. Talk to people who've been, and especially who have hunted the animals you're looking for in the areas you want to hunt.

Enjoy the planning. It's half the fun!

I think Groves is down near Port Arthur on the coast, I'm up between Palestine and Crockett, about an hour west of Nacogdoches.

I think I sent Scott a PM. How do I know if he received it and how do I read one that is sent to me?

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

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
