Greetings,

As a new member, I thought I had better introduce myself. My name is Brent, 52 years old, and I have lived in Arizona most of my life. I hunt and fish here in the West. I have lurked around this site for a few years, however, devastating life events a few years back, have kept my dream of Africa from becoming a reality.

I really enjoy this website, and all the great stories and information. For now, I have to live vicariously through the rest of you, as I have no African adventures to share.....but maybe someday!

Welcome to the light!!!

Make a plan and get to Africa, even if it still takes you a while.

Thank you Marius. I have heard great things about KMG hunting Safaris.

Even though I have never set foot on African soil, I have done a tremendous amount of research and reading on African hunting, as well as Safari operations through out the country. There is such a great diversity of flora and Fauna, as well as that great South African hospitality.

Welcome to AH from just up the road a bit!

Thank you Phil. I've been enjoying this nice winter weather we are having. Not too much longer before the Bass and Crappie start spawning, and a trip to Roosevelt maybe in order, before the Oven temperatures of Summer get here.

As warm as it's been, they may already have started.

Thank you Brickburn! I have been meaning to join, and when I saw Jaco post about the Lion mauling Reinhard, I wanted to jump in and at least lend some support.

One minute your sharing a drink with a guy and the next you hear he is wrestling for his life with a Lion.

Looking forward to the other side of this tragedy.

A happier time.

Thanks Bob!

I would be very happy to do a plains game safari someday.

My 21 day, full bag, bucket list hunt in Tanzania is something to dream about. LOL,

I know what you mean I'm still dreaming of my 21 day hunt in the Congo with Bongo heading up the list.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
