In regards to the Hunting Reports forum at http://www.africahunting.com/community/hunting-reports/.

I am sucker for a long read with plenty of pictures and after reading some comments on the now defunct Reviews section I was wondering what can be done to encourage those folks who don't really have time or are just not inclined to become literary wonders in this life time.

What should a simple review include?
Country
Dates
Type of Hunt (Plains Game, Big Game, Cull, Bird...)
Method of Hunting (Rifle, Bow, Handgun…)
Outfitter
PH
Agent
Locations Hunted
Species Hunted
Trophy Quality
Species Seen, Population and Quality of Game Observed
Lodging
Food
Activities
Travel Methods

High Points
Low Points
Things to Improve
Overall Rating
Would Recommend to a Friend?

(Just so everyone knows, J slipped in here and added to the list so you can blame him to. ) :)

I think the species hunted/seen should include the zoological Latin name......;)

Sorry Wayne, Mike made me say that. Actually I think your list looks good and should be made a sticky so that folks can refer to it.

o_O wayne i am glad you think that list is simple ........:E Crazy Eyes: ;)
When compared to Wayne's "picking an outfitter" spreadsheets that list IS simple!!! :)

About the only thing I'd suggest to add is "region" along with country.

You see, with the zoological Latin names, that report sounds so much better!

I just completed my online USFWS 3-177 form to clear my trophies from my July 2014 safari and I needed Genus species and common name for each species, so Phoenix Phil is just helping the hunters get a step up on their future paperwork!

I think a review section is a great idea, even if you do a report it still adds to it. People like me are not really great at telling a story so it would help!

The jugs contains oil in it. Take suggested drops as referenced in the item and for best outcomes take it two times per day. Unadulterated Completed container contains a dropper which turns out to be all the more simple for the shoppers to take it. Before utilizing the item sympathetically adhere to the guidelines how to utilize it.
