    Greetings from New Jersey...Happy to be a part of a group of such fine folks:cool:. I'm a long time outdoorsman (hunting fishing etc), raising a family and passing on the tradition to my children. I have a life long dream of going to Africa for a hunt. No doubt instilled by listening to my Uncles stories of his many adventures, back packing across Africa, Including being the last westerner to escape Uganda, under Amin.
    I have a passion for hunting, and I'm sure I'll learn a lot here.

    Thank you so much everyone....I truly do feel welcome. And I sure do hope it will be a reality for me soon, and I would love to bring my kids.

    As Hog Patrol put it so eloquently put it....there is no time like the present!!

    Hopefully I can make it happen!!

    Welcome to the forum. You will love it here. Hope you get to realize your dream to hunt in Africa. Check out the hunting deals section - there are plenty of great outfitters on this forum.

    By the way, did you ever bag a black bear in New Jersey?
