Hello all, feel like I know some of you already by trying to read all the great info that has been posted.
Planning on contributing shortly, looks like I'll be headed to Africa soon on my first Safari, and I honestly haven't slept well since! Does Africa call your name in the middle of the night? lol

Regards,

Lee

RSA. Don't have all the details yet but definitely want a Warthog. Other than that I'm open to what is available and what the PH recommends.

Welcome to our forum AR167. You can have all of your questions answered here pertaining to hunting Africa. Enjoy the research and planning. I am not sure about dreaming about it, but many here think about it most of our waking hours! And after you go once, it just gets worse!

Welcome to AH! As I’m sure you’ve seen, this is THE PLACE for info on hunting Africa.
I love your choice of warthog as your number one trophy. It was my number two on my first safari. My PH thought I was nuts for wanting a full mount warthog, but it’s the first trophy you see when you walk in the front door. LOVE THOSE PIGS!

Welcome aboard AR167. How about a little more information about yourself as it is related to hunting? Things like what have you hunted in the States, what kind and caliber rifles do you own, do you reload. Who have you booked with, where will you be hunting? Warthogs seem to be everywhere so they are not difficult to find. Personally, I prefer a nice Russian Boar.

As to my hunting experience it is mainly centered around whitetail and wild hogs. The latter being my speciality. Night hunting is a fun activity especially when the temps and humidity are high down here in South Louisiana. Thermal optics with suppressed AR-15's operating at night is about as much as you can have with your clothes on IMHO.

I'm a fairly decent reloader and would definitely like to see if my loads have what it takes in Africa. Currently I am considering 2 rifles to bring over, but the more I read I might have to reconsider. I have two LH Wby Mark V's that I shoot well and are in .460 and .340Wby. Left handed guns tend to be scarce so over time I've gravitated towards the Wby's.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
