    Hello, My name is Philip Moore and I live in Jefferson, Texas. I found this forum a while back just doing web searches for info on hunting Africa. Like many of you, it has been a lifelong dream to hunt the Dark Continent.
    It started when I was a young boy reading the hunting stories in my Dad's Argosy, True and Sports Afield magazines. Any of you remember Argosy Magazine? Well I have finally come to a point in my life where I believe I can make it happen. Reading ya'lls hunting reports about the exciting hunts you have had has really been getting me fired up to do something about it. So, hopefully in 2016 my dream will come to be a reality. Until I decide exactly what I want to hunt and where, I will be lurking in the shadows on here to learn more about all the possibilities. Keep those great stories coming. Thanks, Philip

    Thanks for the welcome Guys. I have some friends that have been there and they have been after me to go while it is still possible. They also tell me that once you go the first time, you will go back.

    Welcome Philip. Like you I started dreaming of an African Safari when I was a boy. I saved my coins for a long time to do it but the memories were worth every penny. Like Billc says once you go over you will start planning the next trip before you even get back to Texas!
    Ask questions on here because there are list of folks willing to help.

    Thanks for the replies. My dream hunt is for a big old Dagga Boy, but I probably won't get to do that on this hunt. Most likely just PG, which maybe will include one of my other priorities, a nice Sable.

    I second Royal27. That's how Ann and I did it back in 2011. It means a lot to talk to the outfitters and PH's face to face. Plus, the AH gang gets together for dinner - you can pick their pickled brains while there!

    Welcome to the site! Make yourself a promise - that you won't let 2016 pass by without fulfilling your dream, in fact 2015 would be even better because you'll be even closer to trip #2 that way. It takes some planning and saving for sure, but it is so worth it. Be warned though, the desire to go back is very real and unrelenting. There are certainly some great PHs/safaris to chose from right here in the forum. Good luck & make it happen!
