After Linebacker Leopard in Botswana by Bob Keagy

A twig snapped out of our blind. It seemed inordinately loud in the otherwise silent landscape. Mike slowly and silently raised his binocular. He then turned to me and pantomimed something walking with his fingers. Leopard! He turned to me, I didn’t move.AfterLinebacker

Buckey, me and a wrangler: Tales of an Alaskan Dall Sheep Hunt by Don Seibel

You could tell that he was in a hurry. He was making his way from one mountain range to another, crossing through the valley floor always aware of his surroundings, as it is here that sheep are most vulnerable to wolves and other predators.Buckey

China Gold by Bob Keagy

There, standing in the shadows under the lip of the canyon on the far side, stood an adult takin. As it observed us with bovine calm, I took Tiger’s backpack and laid it on a stump in the behind of the trail. I asked him if the takin was a good one. ChinaGold

Hunting Marco Polo’s Ram by Bob Keagy

Among the rams, the third one had tops that curved out and flared downward. Suddenly, the sun broke through for a second and fell on the third ram as if to single it out. It surely appeared to be the biggest, but I looked to Maryanbek for guidance.MarcoPolo

Jumbo Surprise by Bob Keagy

My good friend Mike Murray of African Fields Sports called me and said: “Bob! Bob! I’ve got a cancellation on opening day in one of the best elephant concessions in Botswana! I know you’ll get a big ellie!”…JumboSurprise

Nyala Safari In An Ancient Land by Bob Keagy

I dutifully got my shooting sticks in place. It was a 100-yard shot, roughly 45 degrees uphill. Additionally, I would have to skim – and not hit – the edge of the tree in order to slip the .340 into the nyala’s brisket and heart… NyalaSafari

With a Longbow in Mozambique by Mel Toponce

After a time, sharp-eyed PH Dion pointed excitedly beside the road, and we got out of the vehicle. I peered where Dion was pointing but saw nothing.

Together, we entered the dense undergrowth with great stealth and inched forward… …Longbow

Why Do I Hunt? by Mike J. Borel

I love hunting because…..Why_I_Hunt..

Our member articles cover all sorts of their hunting or fishing adventures. At first when you are looking for a hunting club you must answer, “ what is a hunting club”? One thing one must think about is having a hunting club activate or an active club to join. What good is a club that doesn’t do anything?

As with all new hunters or fishing enthusiasts, you not only need a good club to help you but also that the membership provides great advice, plus where to find the best hunting sporting goods stores. There are many hunting and fishing stores to choose from but with some known track record with club members can really help you with your hunting or fishing needs.

Welcome to the Safari Club Golden Gate Chapter

The Safari Club is a great place to meet other talk with learn from hunters.

The Golden Gate Chapter of the Safari Club International is a gathering point for SCI members in the San Francisco East Bay, especially in the Diablo Valley, North Bay, and the Tri-Valleys.

This is a great way to get together and talk with other hunters in a welcoming environment. It is also a great way to learn from other hunters. We have speakers at our dinner meetings that help educate us on hunting worldwide.

We have also added a ton of new and great information on the website. We have a new podcast section with interviews of self-reliant outfitters worldwide. Click here to see our podcast page and take note of each outfitter’s specialty hunts!

Please feel welcome to come to our member dinners and see why we enjoy it so much.

In the safari club we have members who are interested in hunting or fishing, and to that end we do have lots of links to great hunting or fishing stores that have great resources for our members. It might not be obvious to the reader but many of our members are very interest hunting and fishing in places all over the Northern Americas and the world too. If you check out the members articles you can find their experience in said adventures.
