Hi all,

Despite just joining now, I've been reading through AfricaHunting forums for awhile now and have only good things to say. I'm a California native who will be moving to South Africa in September 2017 so I'm sure I'll be turning to this sight more and more as time goes on. That said, I'm very much looking forward to continuing to develop my knowledge base so I can become a halfway decent SA hunter.

A big shout out to Tootabi Hunting Safaris for a great intro to SA hunting and introducing me to this site. I'll never forget that first animal they put me on:)

Regards from CA,
Scott

Welcome Scooch, both to AH and SA. I did the move in 2004 from Sweden to South Africa and haven't looked back.
Where in SA will you live?

Africa 5 times, USA - most western states including Alaska and Hawaii.
California is the over-crowded dungeon of a giant, cruel tax ogre, from which decent people should make every effort to escape.

Welcome to AH. If you are planning to take a number of firearms to SA I suggest you contact Henry Durrheim at henry@riflepermits.com He will help you through the firearm importation process.

Wow--that's a lot of greetings! Thanks all.

Well long story short, my wife's folks are moving out to SA from Germany (her dad is originally from Namibia), so we've decided to throw some roots there ourselves. We're moving to Jeffreys Bay which is about an hour and a half from her parents, but between the two households, I hope to have the freezers stocked year round--something that's pretty hard hunting public lands like I'm doing now. I will miss CA, but I'm very much so looking forward to this new adventure of ours...the animals being a big part of that.

Again, thanks to everyone for the greetings, and thanks to Shootist43 for the reference. I'll have temporary residency for the first 2ish years I'm there so I'm eager to find out if I'll have to take my guns out of the country every 6 months like the laws seem to state. I'm hoping there's a way around this though...

-Scott

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

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
