Boy does that really suck. You put a lot effort getting your rifles ready and just the excitement of an Africa hunt is a bummer. I hope this health issue is just a little speed bump and things will turn around for you.Sadly, another swing and a miss.
I've tried three times in recent years to get to Africa and hunt. It's never worked.
This time my old nemesis, health issues, prevented me from traveling.
I think I'm giving up, at this point in life, I can be content hunting and fishing in the northwest. Which isn't all bad.
I'll happily read of your African adventures, and wish that I'd gone earlier, when I was healthier. Doc said I was crazy to even try. He's a pretty smart guy and looking after my best interests.
