Default fourth trip to africa as good as the first three

fourth trip to africa was just as good as the first three trips, i shot 13 animals this trip. here are a few pictures of some real nice animals, as always nothing goes to waste and the natives find a use for everything.. i am going on my fifth hunting trip in in june or july. i am thinking of living there for four months from april-june in the future. eastbank.

Hunting in Africa is something I can only dream of. You are very blessed to have hunted there 4 times. Will you need someone to carry your rifles for you?

Thanks, Dinny

not yet, but at 73 i don,t move as fast as i once did.. if you plan ahead and buy your air tickets and if you hunt on privite ranches and self cater it is cheaper over all and don,t take the biggest trophy,s, you can go hunt at a very good price. under 10,000 usd. find some one who has been their and try to go with them the first time. eastbank.

It would have to be at least $8K less than $10K. The US Army pays me weakly, very weakly.

Thanks, Dinny

first let me thank you for your service, if you could start saving a little every payday in time it will add up. and you will get to go at a later time in your life when times will be better for you. africa is some thing to see and the people that i met were wonderful to a yankee. eastbank.

Thank you! Someday I'm sure I'll go to Africa.

Volunteer for a post somewhere in Africa. Lots of the military men in my family got stationed there for a time. Just depends on where the hotspots are located.

i am getting things in order for my fifth and last trip to africa, i will be leaving between june 5-7, not to do a lot of hunting as much as seeing old friend maybe for the last time. maybe a large red heartabeast and few impla and worthog or a few meat animals. on my first trip i went to joeberg, and drove to durben and south to the cape and back to joeberg. on my trip to durben it reminded me of our own western states and to the cape where the weather was to say the least exciting. i met many fine people and was welcomed into many of their homes and have had several africans friends come to america. eastbank.. PS the pic of the truck is after we hit a donkey in botswana at night at about 50 mph..
