This post is just to get the thread started. A little over a year ago the possibility of an AH group hunt was proposed. The thought behind it is that since we all share a common "love" of hunting in Africa that we could form a group of AH members that were willing to hunt with guys and gals that perhaps we'd only met virtually. We started off with about a dozen interested AH members from across the globe. Schedules and obligations whittled the number down to 8 for quite a while then at the last minute 2 more had to drop out, one because of a major change in jobs and the other for a family medical emergency. But today is the day most of us are taking off. My plane leaves Detroit in a little over six hours so I need to get moving. Wish us luck & we'll be sure to keep you posted. No doubt there will be some overlaps in the "story" that gets told. This hunt has all the earmarks of a fun filled AH get-together .

I am with you in spirit and wouldn't mind being there myself, even though I only arrived home one week ago and my memories are vivid on my animals and the hard hunting I had to put in for that pig! Good luck and be sure to write us a good report

Currently sitting in Atlanta airport and it's busy busy this morning (11am). Headed to Angola for business and then following in behind the AH hunt group going to @pawprintsafaris. I hope you guys have a great hunt, but please please leave me something to shoot!

What an excellent idea so look forward to not only the hunt report and pics, but also the success of the venture with like minded hunters all meeting for the first time.

Appreciate your info and feedback, I looked at some European websites to try and get info on the value of this particular Steyr. Further input from you on it's value would be appreciated as you have a bunch of them. I assume you collect the Steyr Luxus for a reason ---they are a finely built rifle.
I’ll never hunt Africa, but give me please a Jack O’Connor hunt up high in the Canadian Rockies!
Just came from a hunt and already longing for the bush
