Greetings and salutations from Iowa
Happy to be here. I'm a few years away from retirement and hope to do an African hunt before I'm too decrepit! I hunt waterfowl, upland game and whitetails.
I enjoy the various TV shows featuring African hunts. One thing I've noticed is the way rifles are handled during the hunt. What I'm talking about is the habit of holding the barrel while the forearm rests on the shoulder. Why is this done in Africa exclusively? I've not seen this in North American hunts.It seems somewhat careless to be yanking on the barrel. I'd be concerned with "tweaking" the barrel.
Just an observation on my part. I'll be interested in the rationale.
