My favorite African trophies
Warthog. My Ph and I by far spent more time hunting a pig than we did any other animal.
My preferred weapon(s)
.375 H&H in Africa, .404J for the buffalo....3006 in U.S.
What weapon(s) do you hunt with?
  1. Rifle
  2. Shotgun
My preferred optic(s)
Use Weaver 1.5x5 DG scopes on my .375 HH and .404J. These scopes retailed for about $500. I bought one, used it on my .375 for a year with no problems at all. Bought another as they were ending production of this model. Placed in the safe for 18 months before mounting it on the .404 in Oct 17 in preparation for the July 18 buffalo hunt. With approximately 75 rounds through it and a buffalo, zebra and warthog, have had no issues. They will remain on these heavy rifles until I detect a problem.
Leupold and Nikon on other rifles.
Vortex binos
Gear I cannot live without
Not much in Africa. Much more needed in the U.S. because you and your hunting buddy have to do it all!!!
My best hunting tip
Practice with your rifle when ever you can. If your rifle's recoil is too much for you to practice with, step down to a smaller caliber
My other interests
Working with and teaching my young grand kids.
