Just wanted to say hello to everyone.

I did look around on this site last year before I went on Safari. Very helpful for a first timer.

Any other Alaska guys?

Welcome to the forum, we have some great guys from AK on here. I hope to one day reside there myself. I keep telling my boss that if McDonalds call me with a fry cook job up there I'm going. I'm not so sure I'm joking either.
Tell us where and what you hunted and of course what guns!
Cheers,
Cody

Thanks Bullthrower!
I hunted South Africa last year, close to Jeffrey's Bay, at Stompiesland Safaris. Nico Lourens is the owner, what a great family he has and an amazing place!
My Wife took a Kudu and Impala. I was lucky with a Nyala, Impala and Bushpig. No guns for us...just the Mathews Bows

Welcome to AH Chris! Glad you made good use of the site on your first trip... Are you planning your next, if so where? Let's see some pictures from your first time in SA.

Welcome to AH.
I'm out Anchorage. Currently shoot at Black Sheep Bowmen and Northwest.
I believe I got my Athens Afflixtion through you in '14.

Welcome aboard Bowdup. I agree with the others, it is time for you to post your story and pictures. Matthews bows are about as good as they come.

WOW!! Thank you all for the warm welcome!

I do own an Archery Shop here in Alaska and I'm not surprised to see a few familiar faces.

I have a few friends traveling to Stompiesland Safari's this year, wish I was going with them, although if things work out I might be able to swing the October trip! I do plan on going back soon as it's all I can think about. I enjoy talking about Africa in the shop, both telling and hearing stories. Nico and his family have become very good friends and we chat weekly on WhatsApp...what a great thing that is, the ability to communicate with anyone almost anywhere is amazing.
My wife and I plan to return to South Africa and hunt with Nico again. We both are wanting to continue to hunt the Plains Game. No specifics really, with archery we take what comes to us, but I do hope to get a Kudu bigger than hers!

I will get the pics and a hunt report posted ASAP!

Again, Thank You all for the warm welcome!

Chris

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
