    Answers to some common questions provided by Jamy Traut ; Ask the Namibian Guides, D.Rupp. Safari Press.

    " Shoot often from different positions, and not only from comfortable ones."

    "Most plains game is hunted between 80 and 150 yards."

    "Most hunters make the mistake of shooting to far behind the shoulder"

    "Make sure you are comfortable with your rifle. Make sure you are fit enough for the type of safari you booked."

    Has anyone tried Hungarian Unicum? It's like Jaegermeister on steroids. It's a little less sweet, so I prefer it, but it's hard to find here in the states.

    Welcome to AH. If you're after an Eland or Zebra, shoot 200gr projectiles. If not, 180's will serve you well if you prefer the lighter loads. Personally I prefer what I've come to call the big 3, North Fork Bonded cores (if you load your own), A-Frames and TSX/TTSX. Otherwise, I'd carry Nosler Partitions.

    i did have some behind the bar that i got in hungary when i was boar shooting there, but only gave it to people who i decided werent quite in full party mode to get them fired up..... there are plenty of variations of local fire water in different european countries, some that are a lot worse than others i can tell you.
