    My name is Thomas and I am a lifelong big game hunter in North America, and wingshooter with English Pointers. I joined to gather more information on scheduling a plainsgame hunt for my father and myself in 2018 and found this site when searching for information about an outfitter I was about to book a hunt with, Northwoods Adventures. After finding a thread with negative reviews about his brokerage, I am hoping to spend some time here looking for a adequate replacement and more information.

    Welcome to AH Thomas, there are plenty of replacement options on here.if you are looking for a place close to Johannesburg airport to minimize traveling time to the hunting area. We are based 2hrs west of Johannesburg and would love to give you more details about our operation to possibly host you and your Father at Bos en Dal Safaris. Please send me a p.m if this sounds like something you would consider.
    My personal best

    Welcome aboard Thomas. I see that you have already been contacted by some of the sponsors / outfitters affiliated with AH. There will be more. Spend some time reading previous posts about the type of hunting you and your dad are interested in. There is lots of information that can be "gleaned " from a little research.
