    With a heavy heart my wife and I have decided to leave here and move to the UK. This has been my home since I moved here as a 16 year old in 1977 and hers since she was born. Things have been good here for us but slowly (or not so slowly) things seem to be taking a downward trend, both economic...

    A big hello from across the waters. Stumbled upon this site by chance, and what a refreshing site it is. Doesn't seem to have the constant bickering of other sites or the fear of asking questions that could get you flamed. I'm pretty new to bow shooting and have tons of issues I need resolved...

    Hi folks, I’ve really been thinking about Africa the last few months. I didn’t think the Dark Continent bug’d ever smite me, but sure enough it’s beginning to seriously itch. I can comfortably handle 55 to 58#’s and my arrows will weigh in the 570-grain range. I’m confident that the outfit...

    Hey folks, Let's do some Africa pictures, questions and answers. I know some of you have been over there too. Jump in, post some pics and let's talk about the dark continent. I've only got trophy photos saved on the computer and only from the last couple hunts. I've been over there 8 times so...

    I just got back from South Africa and took 5 nice animals with my DAS. The DAS performed great. I had pass throughs on my impala and warthog. I shot through quartering away on a nyala and broke his off side shoulder and the arrow was sticking out a couple of inches. I also took a gemsbok and a...
