Hi Russ, I don't want to offend you but you should be asking lots of questions before you book.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 !!
Hi MarkczHi Russ, I don't want to offend you but you should be asking lots of questions before you book.
Don't forget there is no such thing as a stupid question.
Welcome aboard Russ. What are you guys planning to hunt? What country will you be hunting in? Will you be using your own or Outfitter's rifles? AH is a website where you can get answers to any and all of your questions. Look around the site for a while and I'll bet you'll find a number of posts (topics) dealing with areas of interest to you. We all have our favorite "toys" and different experiences that taint our objectivity and that sometimes leads to lively discussions. Always remember that the one thing you will never get from this site is bad advice. Enjoy, and happy hunting.
Well done Russ you are obviously on it. You would be surprised the amount of people who spend thousands and don't ask all the questions, you usually meet them at the airport on your return journey with glum faces.Hi Markcz
The first thing you will learn about me, is that it is impossible to offend me.
We asked lots of questions of the outfitter before we booked. We also searched online for reviews of them, and spoke to some people who had used them in the past.
But I will have a lot of questions to ask before we go, mainly about bullet choice (using a 7mmRM), suitable clothing, extra equipment to take, places to visit after the hunting etc
Hi Russ, I'm down in wigtownshire (dumfries and galloway).right on the coast
Aye Russ, very very lucky to live in such an unspoilt part of UK . i'm near Newton Stewart so next time your up come for a chat . i've been 7 times to africa and just booked my next in october .Ah, yes, I know the area a little. My friend has had ground near Southerness for over 20 years and I go up a couple of times a year. I also know someone who had a deer park at Castle Douglas.

Could be a good idea, you may be tired of dragging all my hinds to the larder and need a break.
Welcome Russ! Have you considered Namibia for your first African experience? Currently it is politically and economically the most stable country in Africa. The finest in FREE RANGE plains game huntingHi
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
