Hello everyone! Like the title says I'm a new guy from Oklahoma I'm 34 married to a great woman and have two beautiful kids. I hunt regularly here at home for whitetail, turkey, ducks, small game, etc and across the western US for elk, mule deer, pronghorn, coues deer, etc. I had never put much thought into hunting Africa besides the idol day dream. That all changed one night at my local RMEF banquet when they were auctioning off a trip to SA. The bids were slow so I helped out a bit. Well I just returned from my first trip and already booked my next. I read a lot of very useful information on this site leading up to my trip but never joined as I felt it would be a one time deal. How wrong I was I will be back and sooner rather than later. So I figured I'd join in the conversation and introduce myself. By the way I hunted with Ronald Bernard of Ubathi Global safaris and was very happy I plan on doing a write up in the hunt reports section when I have some time.

Thank you sir! Orginally from the piney woods of SE Oklahoma in the small town of Rattan. Work and life have brought me to the OKC metro for the foreseeable future the small suburb of Choctaw specifically. Still do a lot of my hunting on family land in Pushmataha County.

Do you still have this rifle? I'm in the KC area on business and I'm very interested.

I didn't get drawn for Wyoming this year.




Are you planning to hunt Unit 4 this fall?



(Thinking about coming out)
