    Hello to all.
    I am a hunter from Norway. I have been hunting since I was a kid. I have done a couple of trips to New Zealand, and several trips to Africa. Maybe I will find my next hunt here. I think it is fantastic to meet hunters from other parts of the world and I have learned a lot during the years. I am not a tropy hunter, I just enjoy the hunt and the game, small or big. I have not shot a buff or elephant this far, but if the right offer comes by I will seriously consider it. Some years ago I put my scooped rifle aside, and now I mostly use a big bore, iron sighted double. That is the best investment I have ever done (not economic). Pig hunting with a double is my absolute favorite.
    I have read a lot of interesting stuff here and I finally took a grip to myself to become a member.
    Looking forward.
    Thanks.

    Welcome to AH Jake771. It is easy to see that you are going to fit right in with this crowd. I've hunted pigs before, but never with a double rifle. On occasion I use my Marlin 336 C (a lever action rifle) in 35 Remington with "peep" sights. When you get the opportunity how about writing up a story of your previous hunts including photos? What make and caliber double are you using?

    Welcome Jake.

    I have some specials on elephant and buffalo hunting in Zimbabwe.

    Feel free to send me a message and I can tailor make a deal to fit your wallet and that will make those iron sights happy.

    Hi Jake

    Welcome to AH. In terms of meeting your desire to hunt Cape Buffalo and Elephant; we own and hunt a variety of magnificent concessions for Dangerous Game in both Tanzania, Namibia and Cameroon. In any one of these destinations you experience exciting hunt with your double rifle. With almost 20 years of hunting dangerous game in Tanzania (and elsewhere) you can be assured of our expertise and passion in this field. If you like to hunt hogs with your double, wait until you start on Cape Buffalo. We offer licenses that will allow you to hunt 2 - 3 exportable bulls. We also have one elephant tag left.

    Should you require more information please feel free to email us magdel@gtasafari.com/office@gtasafari.com

    Thank you.
    Regards
