    Good hunting to everybody.
    My name is Mike Shukis and I live in Moscow, Russia. I am a free lance gun/hunting writer, and a hunting consultant. Most of my clients are Russians, but, I have a few from other countries too. I love both of my jobs; one allows me to spend roughly 100-120 days per year in the hunting areas, mostly in Africa; thanx to another, I get to share my experiences with fellow hunters thru the pages of Russian hunting magazines, though I should write more often. I understand that everything has been invented and discovered, that's why I mostly rely on the experience of the real professionals, the African PHs. I am lucky to have quite a few good friends among them. I am a rifle nut, as I love everything with a rifling. This is the 1st time that I am participating in any forums. So, I am not familiar with a lot of stuff here. But, I'd love to learn more, and, I will share that little that I happen to know.

    Thanx a lot to everybody for the warm greetings.
    Honestly, gentlemen, I feel like I have walked into a room, apparently not knowing anybody. But, there's Jacques Spamer, with whom i have shared camp on a few occasions in Northern Cape, and, there's Danie Strauss; and though I never got to hunt with Danie, but, we've been corresponding for quite some time. It feels great. I am among friends. Thank you, from the bottom of my rifling heart. My experience is only as good as the Phs that I choose for my clients. And, I have learned to choose very good ones. And, I listen to what they have to say about guns, and, buffalo, etc.
    My personal obsession is buffalo, and, elephant, and, I love bushbuck and kudu, in any country and in any habitat. But, once I happened to eat a piece of the bleeding heart of my 1st grizzly, and, that animal was the center of my dreams when I lived in Alaska... and it still is.
    Thanx again, and, good hunting!

    Thanx, Baobab.
    I am already enjoying it. Lots of useful stuff. Nice people too.
    as for the weather, there's nothing unusual for this time of the year. The temps are around 0 Centigrade. Yesterday it was snowing like hell. Today, it's just plain ugly. There will be lots of accidents during the coming week. As you probably know, traffic in Moscow is like nowhere else. Forget about NYC, or Chicago - kids' stuff. But, we'll survive. Russian winter usually surprises government people on all levels. They just can't seem to accept the fact that before the middle of November we are going to have cold and snow, lots of it. And, for them, it's like: oh, shit, who could have thought about it!!!
    Anyway, what you have is paradise. And, we live in Russia.

    Regards,
    Mike.
