    New to the forum - really looking forward to learn more about African hunting and share some of my adventures with you all.


    Enjoy hunting very much, especially the long hard walks, find them very rewarding. Caribou, moose and Red Deer is the species I hunt in Norway. Also hunted in Canada and New Zealand.

    I have a life long dream of hunting elephant with a double rifle.
    That will be my next great goal so I hope you fellow gentlemen, and ladies, will share some of your hard won experiences with me.

    Interested in buying a double in .450/.400 as soon as my funds permits.

    Best regards,

    Kristoffer

    Another elephant hunter. Stan will be a good tutor for you.
    He sure hunted them the right way. Read his story.

    Look forward to your pictures and stories of your hunts.

    Welcome to AH.

    Thank you all for a warm welcome!

    On 23rd dec I'm actually attending a driven hunt for roedeer, with dogs. this is just outside Oslo in the Agricultural area, so hopefully I'll have a few pictures and a story to post. This has become a yearly tradition among some friends of mine - great to close this hunting season like that.

    I'd very much appreciate a link to "Stans" elephanthunt

    Thanks!

    I've already learned a whole lot the last hours.

    I've been taught the difference between need and want when it comes to double rifles by PaulT. Not sure I want to listen to the reasoning!:cool:
