I have been familiar with AH for some time now, but for some unexplained reason I had not taken a close look at this community until now. I was actually doing some reading and research last night on hunts in Benin and was directed to AH through my online search. After looking around and reading some excellent posts, I decided to join. This certainly seems to be a really great community and a fantastic source of information, sharing and enjoyable connections. Very glad to be a part of it.

I usually explain my lifelong passion for the outdoors, hunting, fishing and travel by relaying how lousy my golf game has been (and no doubt will remain). I have said many times previously that I would have to improve very significantly as a golfer to get to the level of being REALLY lousy.

The main culprit for the slack links performance has always been my preference for a gun or a rod to a driver or a wedge.

Almost any free time I have is focused on the outdoors. Like many others I'm sure, my actual free time is often at a premium due to my professional obligations and a busy family schedule. Regardless, hunting, fishing and travel are where my discretionary time, effort and money go whenever I can make it so. I've had the privilege to hunt and fish a few far flung places over the past 20 years, including 5 safaris in South Africa and Zim. I try to make Africa every few years give or take, and as long as the body and the bank account will allow it I'll continue to do so. 'Happy to share a little bit, about hunting, guns, travel, etc., when I can and will surely learn a lot more here in the process.

Welcome to "The Africa" forum! I'd love to read a little report and see some pictures from some of your hunts when you get the opportunity!

Welcome aboard Outback. Based on nothing more than your introduction "we" can already ascertain that you fit right in. AH members share a common love of hunting and the outdoors. The respectful sharing of our collective knowledge and experiences makes AH the place to be for "guys" (and gals) like us.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
