Chris, welcome to the AH forum and congratulations on going to Africa! You won’t regret it!
A couple of things:
1) practice getting on sticks as quickly as possible and making an accurate shot. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat!
2) review the timeline and paperwork trail in SAFARI GUIDE at the top of the page

The planning is great fun to prepare for your adventure!

Welcome. Lots of us Texans on here. The DSC Convention this year was awesome and I booked my 4th hunt for July 2021.
I agree with the poster above about practicing on sticks. Between my last two African hunts in 2018 and 2019 I had many different kinds of shots--from sticks, kneeling, off hand, quartering shots, shots kneeling and using the PH's shoulder as a rest, etc. etc. Practice as many different kinds of shots as you can, but you will definitely be shooting off sticks for most of your first shots.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
