    In Texas I am certain you can access 90% of all gates with either 3006, 2506, 3030 or 1911, but it has to be a rabid lover of John Moses Browning to use 1911.lol

    You might be.....
    Your phone has more pics of your African adventures and guns than anything else combined
    You installed WhatsApp to keep in touch with your PHs & Outfitters.
    You figure out how to make phone calls and text when in country
    You know what a 4457 form is.
    You know what SAPS means.
    Gracy Travel or Travel Express phone #s are in your speed dial.
    You check the Accuweather website for the weather in your upcoming hunt area.
    You spend way too much time checking airline websites and schedules.
    After a few crates, you start mentally moving your trophies around to find space for more.

    You have at least one shell casing and/or a mushroomed bullet on your desk at work.

    You can name all the game animal mounts in Cabelas, and you’ve eaten most of them.

    No no, you have to buy it at the airport! Way too expensive here! Whenever I run out I tell my wife it’s time to go back to Africa!

    You try to estimate how much money it will take to retire and still be able to hunt Africa every year.
    You try to convince your wife that she would enjoy getting a job and working after YOU retire.

    You have convinced your wife to spend 8 hours making rusk so you can enjoy it with Roobios on a Sunday morning.
    And you have been looking up how to make a Biltong Box.
