    Welcome to the forum @Bsto270

    There is some really good outfitters on this forum, and most definitely one of them that will lead you on your safari for you and your dearest wife in 2017. I suggest you start deciding what province in South Africa would work for you, and also research the activities outside of hunting that will keep your dearest occupied and interested during your hunt.

    Be sure to do your research, talk to references and read hunt reports on this section; http://www.africahunting.com/community/hunting-reports/

    Kind regards,

    You will have to report back and let us all know who/what/when/where you will be hunting. That's exciting news we all look forward to hearing.

    Dear Bsto 270:

    Ed here from EAI Outdoors. One of our former clients has informed me that you had tried to contact us about a week ago via phone and were unable to get through. I was in India at that time a and to say the least their phone systems leave something to be desired. For some reason many voice mails just drifted off into cyber space as people were leaving them and we never received any notice. Back in the office now. Please feel free to call me any time.
    Once again sorry for the inconvenience. India is always a bit of a challenge!

    ED

    Good Morning,

    I have narrowed the field down, but am always open to suggestions. What region do you operate in? I will email you the wishlist for my wife and I, along with one for my father in law, who would be hunting with a friend of his, and bringing his wife as well. Thanks.

    Hello Bsto270 and welcome to AH ,
    Have you considered hunting Australia ? lots of sight seeing and hunting opportunities and an abundance of wildlife .
    You could do a Deer hunt in the South or go up North on the Buffalo even better do both !
    Take a look at a post here on AH , in Hunting Aust & NZ , Herve & Marie in NT and see what they got up to on there trip ( there is a you tube clip as well ).
    Where ever you choose to hunt you will have a great time .
    Cheers DB

    Good afternoon Darryl I had not considered it. My wife would love to see Australia. Any idea on an outfitter one could recommend?

    I am hoping at some point soon to post who we decide to go with and where. It has been just this side of overwhelming the number of outfitters who have reached out to my wife and I. Been doing a lot of research, reference checks, etc. Thank you to everyone who has been helping me out.

    I will say Darryl I think this one will be Africa, but I would never turn down the idea of Australia further down the line.

    I would strongly recommend Eitaalo. They are a husband and wife team that know how to cater to couples who hunt. They run an extremely nice lodge with gourmet food. These are people you can trust.

    PS: the Kudu you see in my avatar was taken by me with Eitaalo as the host/guide.
