    Free 2x1 Hunt for Two Hunters from Liam Urry Safaris for 2017/18

    I'm on the left (right in the picture). Joined the military right after high school which he put a damper on hunting the past 5 years. January I was able to meet friends I grew up with on a waterfowl hunt in Kansas.

    Barrel Length for 375 H&H

    I hear you. I remember a few stories about my dad using his out west and up in Alaska on a few hunts. Too bad we lost our 375 in a house fire 10 years back. I do want a general do all type rifle, I dont see myself going all the way down to 20 but i think 22-24'' might be the ticket. Maybe down...

    Barrel Length for 375 H&H

    I do like shorter barrel rifles for hunting as well. But I dont have any magnum calibers with short(er) barrel lengths. Just getting a feel from guys that have more experience.

    Barrel Length for 375 H&H

    Good morning gents, I've been trying to push a couples safari (it'll be both my fiancé's first hunt in the continent) which she's definitely ok with now. I have a couple model 70's that I grew up admiring, one being a pre 64 in 300 H&H that I would like to have a big brother for it . I would...

    Companies that are Non-Supportive of Hunting

    They won't. I've emailed all of them and was shocked... Especially looking at the prices. It a damn shame and I've never been so disgusted. Even leupold too shelf binos have Chinese made parts. It's getting harder and harder to find somewhat "affordable" hunting gear made in the USA anymore...

    Lever Action Rifles In Africa?

    They look awesome. I'd like to have a nice lever to match my freedom arms 454. 460 would be another good caliber as well.

    Lever Action Rifles In Africa?

    I don't have any experience killing anything with my guide gun in 45/70 but I have a lot of friends who swear by it for brush hunting (I usually carried a model 7 cdl in a 350 rem with a 1-4 leupold). I own a stainless guide gun and it runs great. I need a bigger lever to fit my big hands and a...

    Greetings from wisconsin

    Everywhere but here it seems like... Or at least in my brigade. Germany or Alaska will hopefully be in my future if retention can work their magic.

    Greetings from wisconsin

    You assumed right. I'm contemplating it. Ready for a change of scenery is all. Too bad I didn't come from a family like Boddington and that commission coin!

    How did everyone make out at home this year? Post some pictures

    I haven't had a lot of time hunt due to uncle sugar here at Fort. Campbell for the past couple years. I did get back to WI for a buddies wedding and was able to smoke a few ducks the morning of the wedding. Missed the KY deer season due to being in the field for most of the duration. I'm...

    What To Pack In A First-Aid Kit

    The old powder quick clot was terrible... If it hits anything most the chemical reaction would start. A few older NCO's that deployed early in OIF/OEF said the Chem burns on their hands were terrible. The newer combat gauze(z-folded gauze with the clot agent) doesn't burn to my knowledge...

    Hello From KY

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! I've thrown ideas towards the lady about future plans and she really doesn't have a problem! She loves the traveling aspect. She gets just as excited when I get the chance every so often. My parents honeymoon was muley hunting in Wyoming and trout fishing...

    Hello From KY

    Hey guys, I'm Cody. I've been following this site for a month or so and I can't tell you enough how great it is.
