    What Watch do you wear when you hunt?

    I wear one of these. Tritium is easy to see at night and while it is cheap, it looks even cheaper :).

    What is a proper "stopping rifle" and load for dangerous game?

    "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.

    African Trophy Room

    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.

    Looks like they haven’t installed the slot machines and table games yet.

    You are a man after my own heart. Whenever I think I have a "problem" or "obsession", I just go on this forum and immediately feel better about myself. LOL

    For Sale Sako 85 Grey Wolf 9.3x62mm

    What’s the eject pattern like on this model/caliber? Any of those “hit the scope” issues like on some .375s? I love Sakos. Have a 85 Classic in 300 WM and an older A5 in 338 WM

    Markhor....what's the big deal?

    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.....

    Markhor....what's the big deal?

    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...

    Markhor....what's the big deal?

    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.

    Shooting Sticks

    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.

    Good Gun Alert

    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!

    Timney Trigger - Winchester M70

    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...
