Hi
I have been a deer stalker in the UK for more years than I care to remember,
A good friend of mine has hunted in Africa several times and has told me many stories.
On a recent stalking trip, after an evening of story swapping, we decided to start planning my first ever trip to South Africa!
I am really looking forward to being part of the forum and learning from you guys before our trip (May 2020).
Please excuse any rookie questions I may have and, be gentle with me :)

Welcome to our place Russ. As is often said here the only stupid questions are the ones not asked. There is a world of experience here that all are willing to share

Welcome Russ to AH! It will be very helpful to have an experienced friend go with you on your first trip to Africa. Great idea!

Thanks for your kind words fellas.
We are confirming our booking this weekend. We will (hopefully) be going with Settlers Safari.
There will be three of us travelling, two from the UK and one from over in the US.
I am sure we will have lots of questions !!

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Nelson. Is this message a PM format. I want to send you my email, but don't know if this is the cirrect way to do it. I'm at <pappas@mtaonline.net> Send me an email with your phone and I will call you about a skull I have. I went to school in Boston and am from Bernardston in the west part of the state. Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.
