      Hi Velo, I am thinking about a non trophy ele hunt in Namibia. Do you have any outfitter recommendations? Thanks Ado

        Hi Ado,
        I will research my past emails, as I recall an outfit that was offering what seemed like a good elephant deal in The Caprivi awhile back.
        When I find it I will send you their contact info.

      I know you like the Hornady 220gr RN in 30 cal. Midway has some blems on their site for 20 cents apiece!

      Better go get some buddy!

        Thanks Tim.
        I really appreciate this and will bag a supply for them for my PH friend who plans to be here in a few days.
        He will no doubt be very happy to bring them back to his place for culling and his personal "shooting for biltong".

      Hi Velo dog, only had a look at the site this evening.
      Sorry I did not send you a PM, most definitely. I had to look around to find you in the members list to PM you.
      I only turn 60 in September so senility isn't in it. :-)

      Cheers for now.

        No worries.
        I always enjoy your posts.

    Have you hunted in Africa?:
    Number of times I have hunted in Africa:
    My favorite African country:
    Not sure yet, I'd like to visit more of them, before I answer.
    Namibia (1), South Africa (3) & USA (most Western States, including AK & HI). Too bad spear fishing is not called "fish hunting" or, I could add a few extra countries (couldn't resist weaving that in somehow, sorry).
    Species I have hunted in Africa:
    Successfully Hunted: gemsbok, greater kudu, southern impala, bush duiker, klipspringer, common reedbok, mountain reedbok, steinbok, warthog, blue wildebeest, black wildebeest, red hartebeest, springbok, Burchell's zebra, Limpopo bushbuck, blesbok, cape buffalo (plus grouse, pigeons, doves and such likes). Some of the above I have taken in multiples. There are several more African species that I have actually hunted but did not get a shot at (bushpig, baboon, jackal, etc).
    My best African Trophy:
    I guess you want the largest tape measure / trophy book type critter I have taken.
    42" Cape Buffalo, Baruli Concession, just across The Olifants River from The Kruger Park, South Africa, (Army&Navy .450 No2 Nitro SxS Double Rifle).
    However, all credit for finding him goes 1st to The Tracker, (Cepho) and 2nd to the PH (Hannes Swanepoel) not to me. All I did was keep my mouth shut, walk softly and shoot straight. Forrest Gump could have done the same.
    My favorite African trophies:
    The smell of thornbush and nitro powder smoke, lingering in my nostrils.
    My preferred weapon(s):
    Model 98 Mauser, double rifle (double barreled shotguns as well) and single shots (Farquarsons, Martinis and Rugers), in calibers and gauges suitable for whatever I am after.
    What weapon(s) do you hunt with?:
    • Rifle
    • Shotgun
    My preferred optic(s):
    Swarovski, Zeiss, Schmidt & Bender, Khales and similar Austro-German optics.
    Gear I cannot live without:
    Where do I begin?
    My best hunting tip:
    Throw away your tape measure.
    My other interests:
    Fly fishing (fresh and salt).
    Spear fishing (snorkel, spear gun type).
    I also SCUBA dive (so does my wife) but only for sight seeing, not for spear fishing.
