"How many here have shot a buffalo in the head, missed brain, but knocked that bull down still?
What were you using, bullet type, ft/lbs of energy? side of head, straight on?"
This is what I would like to hear more of as well. Excellent post BTW.
My thoughts as well. That is one trophy that money cannot buy (these days). I always loved the picture of Robert Ruark's tiger pelt in his house in Spain. Professor Mawla, you have some incredible trophies with some incredible stories to go along with them. Thank-you for sharing them with us.
Yes , I have a blackbuck mounted as well and they are tasty. They are elegant animals. I have seen one running at a full clip before and can understand why royalty used to hunt them with cheetahs back in their home range. They can move.....
I lived in Texas for a few years. There was a former ranch that had been subdivided into 5 acre lots with McMansions on them. They never got rid of all the axis and blackbuck on that property. It was a hoot watching a herd of blackbuck cross the road around dusk in the middle of a high end...
I have seen pictures of Markhor horns being hung outside wooden houses in Nuristan in the same fashion as Americans hang whitetail antlers on a barn or shed. I do plan to return to the "stans" to hunt mid-Asian ibex. A Markhor hunt in its natural habitat is way out of my price range.
If possible, ask the Outfitter/PH you are planning a hunt with what he (or she) uses and buy the same thing for practice. Worth the investment. Btw I have some African Sporting Creation sticks and like them a great deal.
Are you sure you don't want to save $400 and get a 60 year old anonymously rebarreled mystery gun with no iron sights that was hand made by American craftsmen? Come on man, it's steal. I need to call up 'ol Red Dog Guns right now and buy that rascal before it's gone!
While I am not sure if exported versions of this product/model differ, the short answer is yes they are all adjustable. However, you can have them pre-set (but still adjustable) at a desired weight if you order one directly from Timney .
I have the same trigger (blued version....I believe yours...
