    Good evening

    My name is Johan, I stay in South Africa, more so in Cape Town.

    I enjoy the outdoors and love hunting and fishing.

    Have just recently bought a 375 Ruger Hawkeye Alaskan, and need some advise on this awesome piece of rifle!

    Thanks

    Johan

    Gooday Johan & welcome.
    I've taken a 375 Alaskan twice to Africa & had great results from it. Has a 2.5 x 8 Leupold & not a bad bit of gear for the money. Probably wont win no prizes for beauty though.

    Hi, Johan... welcome to Africa Hunting. One thing you should know about this site: don't ask me anything about anything, I'm just a guy without a clue. You'd probably fare better asking one of the crazier people above me about your rifle. :D
    Anyhow, welcome! It's always nice to meet another hunter or hunting enthusiast.
