Looking for Experiences

Courtney’s, Bungee and a Pithy (decent hat) sounds like a great experience. As long as you add a hunt.

The worms, what do you wash them down with?
Chibuku, opaque indigenous beer, like thin porridge, you strain it through your front teeth. Pleasant taste, but kicks like a giraffe.
 
Hello and thank you for letting me join this site!

I like on the west side of Michigan. I've hunted about all of my life (in my upper 40s). The last decade or so I've made at least one trip a year out west and love the vastness of the country. I consider myself more of an experience driven hunter than a trophy hunter. Don't get me wrong, big is big and I'd love to shoot a truly big animal. I just put more weights towards the whole picture. Where the hunt takes place, who I'm hunting with, the shot scenario, the stalk and so on. This is what brought me to this site. I think Africa is the adventure of all adventures with the diversity of terrain and game.

I look forward to learning from everyone, Brian

Welcome to AH Gowest!
 
I go "home" to hunt Montana every year. It's not the same place it was growing up but if I wait till the end of the season I can still find places where I can be truly alone hunting under the Big Sky.

Africa was a whole different ballgame. I wasn't sure it would be for me. But after two days I knew I'd be back. Four safaris so far and working on one for next year.

Enjoy your time planning on AH. Welcome
 
Welcome!

If your an experience guy than Africa is the ticket! Now even Asia is a pretty big experience and fits right up there with Africa, but they are different as in for me I personally enjoy the African experience more than the Asia experience I did love Pakistan but not more than I’ve loved any of my African adventures. I find the time with the staff and trackers in Africa to be a great time learning how their lives work trying to teach a tracker English while he teaches me Swahili was something I looked forward to daily. Than you get the sights, sounds, and smells of safari that can’t be matched you see so many different game species while on a Safari even if it’s in the darkest forest of Cameroon, the food is incredible along the way and the smells of Africa are just something I wish I could bottle up. A Mopane fire at the end of day in the bush is something everyone should experience once.

It looks like we hunt similar country in Montana. It’s my happy place:).

Especially mopane fire, that smell is unique. Coffee, early morning Africa and mopane fire. Then you can think clearly.

Welkom! For me the same; it is the experience, the different cultures, scenery and diversity of animals that count not the size of the trophies.

Enjoy the Forum!
 
Hello and welcome!
 
Good morning

About Lon's Elephant hunts w/Tokoloshe? I hear Lon is battling cancer? What is his long term prognosis? I am already booked to hunt Africa in 2024 2025. Might consider 2026 for another African hunt. I want to hunt a more wild open region devoid of civilization. Concern is the risk that I book f/2026 then find poor Lon has passed on? Does Lon have any assistance to carry on the business in his absence?

Is your 22HP still available? If so have the original case?

Hi Ian, I'm contemplating my first outing, leaving UK via Dubai to Africa, taking rifles as you did.

I presume it went okay for you, would you have done anything differently? Cheers, Richard East Sussex

Are you still looking for a 375 H&H?
