Hello all!!

I live East of Dallas Texas and am glad to join the group. I am hoping to go to
Africa later this year or next. It will be my first time.

I love to hunt, bust clays, fly fish, tie flies, reload, shoot muzzleloaders and center-fires and currently trying to plan a trip to the Dark Continent.

I attend the Dallas Safari Club Convention each year.

I hope to contribute positively to this forum.

Let's hunt safely, ethically, and defend our 2nd Amendment rights.

Good hunting to all!

Thanks Jerome for creating Africa Hunting!!!!!

You get an "attaboy" from me for lots of hard work on a very well done site. :)

I appreciate the welcome.

The DSC Convention is moving to the Dallas Convention Center in 2010. They have outgrown Market Hall! I remember when the convention was at the DFW airport Hilton and was quite small. They have done an excellent job.

Take care,

Paul

Ryan,

One thing people may not be aware of is that DSC and Houston are not a part of SCI.

You do not have to be a member to attend and they charge:

$15.00 for a Day Pass per person
Weekend Pass - $25.00 per person- Saturday and Sunday
Three Day Pass - $35.00 per person
Four Day Pass - $45.00 per person

The above is for the 2010 show.

Hope you can come sometime. :)

Hey Paul,

If you do make a trip to South Africa to hunt make sure you bring a 5/6wf fly fish outfit with.

There some stunning trout fishing to be had as well as the indigenous yellow fish that will blow you away with their power and long runs.

Do a search on the net and you might want to enjoy a lot more than just hunting.

All the best

Paul,

We have great trout and bass waters.

Trout of 5,5kg and bass of close to 7 kg have been caught in South Africa. Then we have the sharp tooth catfish that weighs up to 35kg's or Tiger fish...

and I have not even talked about salt water fishing ....

huntnfool,
thanks for the info. Indeed, many people assume that DSC is part and parcel of SCI. I am planning to make it there next year, but it all depends on developments my end, though 2011 is a definate tour of USA shows.

My mom lives in San Antonio. She is visiting me in Tanzania right now, so am due to visit her next year, but the Soccer World Cup is happening next summer and the whole family is planning to attend. That could alter my US trip intentions.

Anyhow, outfitters here mostly attend SCI for the parties and come to DSC for real work, plus the parties. Cheers Bwana,

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
