    Hello all,
    Another Alaskan signing in here. I've lived in Homer (south central, 230 miles south of anchorage) for 11 years. Moving here from Long Beach, California for a place more fitting for me and work.
    I do mostly duck hunting and fishing but do some big game for moose, caribou, and black tails. I plan on coming over to Africa for ducks and geese first and possibly some plains game (wife lets mounted birds but not crazy for mounted big game.) I've been using the search function and reading lots of posts already and look forward to reading more. Thank you.

    Welcome to AH.

    There are some excellent bird hunting opportunities in RSA.

    Excellent site. Very informative! So far I have a bird hunt planned in 2020 in South Africa and need to find out more about available ducks, besides the whitefaced, yellow bill, and red billed along with the 2 goose species (all that seems to be legal in RSA.)
    Keep up the good work. Eagerly waiting 2020 or winning the lottery to expedite the trip.

    Welcome ... Homer is an awesome place to be from ... visited there in '89. Really enjoyed exploring the tidal pools and halibut fishing.

    Welcome to AH. I'm up in Anchorage. Don't know about waterfowl but I know you could have an amazing time hunting guinea fowl and sandgrouse at the place I've hunted in Namibia. I recall they throw it in free with a big game hunting and there wasn't a shortage of either. I'm sure one of the sponsors here could focus on waterfowl. Good luck!

    Welcome to AH. If you ever get north of Anchorage, stop in a Screaming Eagle Archery. Great owners with Africa experience, and great connections. They recently held a dinner/raffle with a SA outfit owner.

    "Waldo2382" welcome! Been to Homer a few times (black bear, halibut and salmon). Interesting place. You definitely have lots of waterfowl!

    Enjoy AH! Lots of great info and contacts!
