This... AH allows me to escape an dream :) could come the new AH slogan :D

My reason to join: between the ages 7 till 14 I used to read monstrous amounts of books, something around 4-6 books a week, every week, the whole year (I did not have many friends ;) )Getting into contact with old hunting tales started the dream of one day hunting in Africa. But although I’m from a non-hunting family, over the last 8 years my father and brother followed me in taking the exams, going on our first hunts and looking for more adventures. As we booked a first African safari for NOV20 (which got cancelled) I decided I needed to study more on all aspects of hunting in Africa, so one google search later, here I was.

I must admit that the friendliness of the people here, their willingness to help, advise and share knowledge, is heartwarming!

I’m very thankful to the owner, moderators, and all members here!

Hey VBE, when is your hunt going to happen and where?

We rescheduled a third time, for JUN21 now. But for the moment Belgian government prohibits any travel outside of Belgium for non-professional reasons. The hope is that they will relax the rules a bit after the Easter holiday mid April. So fingers crossed, because this trip I've been dreaming of for the past 20 years, cannot be delayed again. Due to agenda's and work the first date after June would be NOV21, but as we are currently actively trying for children... happy news in this area might make a cross over the African hunting trip for the foreseeable future...

We'll see :)

I am new here. But I joined becouse I miss the hunt and so am lookong for all other aspects.
With the virus, everything is screwed up everywhere.
I found myself rewatching all the old africa movies, all the hunt dvds and just staring at my equipment.
None of the friends I have that live close are hunters.
I miss the hunt and definitely the drinks amd food around the fore afterwards.
So I joined the forum to read peoples hunts and interact with hunters.
My last ditch effort to scratch the itch that will never go away !

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

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
