    300 Win Mag or 325 WSM

    I bought my browning stainless A bolt II in 325WSM in 2006. It is a factory gun with a 23 inch barrel and I reload. It is too bad that Federal didn't make any factory rounds for it. There are a number of different factory rounds however if you look. I shot a black bear with it in 2013 and...

    Best Namibian Outfitter?

    Namibia is so friendly and the police are happy to see hunters and their rifles. I had an awesome hunt in October 2018 with Orpa Hunting Safaris. Dirk is honest and fair and will do whatever it takes to make your safari successful and keep you happy.

    Namibia VS RSA

    I know I'm late to this as well. What I liked about Namibia is that after checking effortlessly into immigration, the checking into the Namibian Police with your safari rifle was a simple form, which I downloaded and filled out ahead of time. The police were happy to see me and gave me the...

    NAMIBIA: My 2018 Free Range Namibian Plains Game Safari With Orpa Hunting Safaris

    Fallow Jaeger, I am having shoulder mounts done. I'll have one slightly right and one slightly left of the gemsbok and the kudu. The warthog will be facing directly forward. Mayes taxidermy in Stevens Point, WI is doing my work. I'll get them NEXT Christmas.

    NAMIBIA: My 2018 Free Range Namibian Plains Game Safari With Orpa Hunting Safaris

    Flatwater, I guess you need to contact Dirk at Orpa Hunting Safaris as his free range farm is loaded with warthogs. I know for sure there is at least two monsters left as I saw them earlier in my hunt. Good Luck!

    NAMIBIA: My 2018 Free Range Namibian Plains Game Safari With Orpa Hunting Safaris

    Beretta391, Qatar is very good but make sure you have plenty of time before your flight to fill out their two forms. Their supervisor needs to sign it and they keep the forms and all Qatar related parties are aware that you DECLARED your safari rifle and completed their form. If this is...
