    I am Ben. I have yet to go on a trip to Africa and hunt but am looking to go next year. I am here to read and learn from experienced individuals. I hunt in the mountains here regularly and can be a halfway decent source of information in this area.

    Welcome to AH, plenty of whit and wisdom around here to help you. Northern Georgia is beautiful, I went up there every once in a while when I was a grad student at UGA. Though I won't lie, my view on mountains is a tad different than Georia's since I have lived a fair amount of my life in Arizona and Alaska.

    Welcome aboard BenC91. What animals are you thinking about taking on your first Safari? Have you selected an Outfitter yet? Will you be taking your own rifle(s?) There are a couple of Mountain chains in the States, which ones are you referring to?

    I've always wanted to hunt buffalo. That's currently number one on my list. I have a friend who is an outfitter and I would like to take my own rifles as I will have time and practice with them (Currently looking for a .458 Win.). The mountains would be the southern portion of the Appalachians.
