Hello everyone!

My son and I just got back from our first safari to South Africa 3 weeks ago. We had an amazing time, I'm completely obsessed with Africa now and can't wait to go back! We've already penciled in dates for our next two trips and started planning!

:S Welcome:

Judging by your avatar I'm going to go way out on a limb and guess you took a damn fine giraffe :D
Congrats on a great first trip and the planning of more to come.

Welcome to AH, I see you have contracted the African Hunting Virus, sorry to tell you this but there is no cure. You can lessen the severity of the symptoms by posting a report on AH. By posting the hunt report you also help others that are suffering through the same disease.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
