    Get away to Africa, but be aware you will not only go once so double what you are saving. You can have a good time shooting Impala, Warthog, Jackal, Baboon maybe, bits and bobs an make a great trip for a first timer.

    Good thread this as I am thinking along the same lines although I have a few more years to save. I'd thought about boar in Eastern europe but I'm not great at moving targets!!

    TBH Doug I'm surprised hearing you have 'yet' to hit 50, you must have had it tough!!

    Wf1~ she wouldn't leave the dog mate I'm taking her to Scotland all being well and the sako lol .
    stratts ~ I've had it rough mate 4 kids and several wife's have taken thier toll especially on my wallet !
    From what I read and see I think a trip to Africa would be a hell of an experience but then there is NZ that looks amazing too .

    It has to be Africa. Reasonable prices on a management cull for impala, blesbok, springbok etc

    I'm 50 next March, South Africa booked with Settlers Safaris, 10 day management cull with a few buddies, just got to take the plunge and whatever you finally decide to do make sure you do it, I won't be here in another 50, so how wrong can it go!!!!
