    Is there an African animal you wouldn't shoot?

    I killed an anteater of some kind many years ago and immediately regretted it, so no more of those or anything similar like an aardvark. As far as the "normal" game animals, I'd be least interested in the black wildebeest. Not that I have any moral objections, they just look icky and I wouldn't...

    Fishing Addiction Group

    Ha thanks yeah I'm pretty well-done right now. It was a great time, lots of friends and family joined us on the boat. Always great to introduce people to the wonders of the sea.

    Got back yesterday from our annual summer vacation, 4 weeks in Prince Rupert, British Columbia (20 days on the water). Plenty of nice little halibut, but the salmon were slow up until the last few days we were there.

    My daughter's "going to Africa" video blog

    At first I thought she was just getting to know that .22 but then she closed the bolt on an empty chamber and could hear that there was no shell, so she must have shot it quite a bit. Sounds like it will be a great experience. Her English is coming right along.

    Warthog Jumps String

    Wow, I've had deer that ducked under the arrow's path as they gathered themselves to take their first jump but I've never seen anything jump FORWARD out of the way. That's unreal.

    3D archery shoot prep for upcoming Safari

    3D is phenomenal practice... I'm lucky enough to have an 18 target course about 2 miles from home. Definitely better practice than shooting groups on a block, although I do my share of that too.

    Will my Professional Hunter want me to bring more than a .270

    I guess I'm back on the .270 train for now. Sold the .300 RUM and bought the lady a PSE Stinger bow complete with some pink arrows... and her groups are tightening up quickly.

    Will my Professional Hunter want me to bring more than a .270

    Well, the rifle isn't here yet. Still waiting for it to be shipped. But that's ok, because I'm starting to consider changing my plan a little... I'm trying to determine if my girlfriend enjoys shooting, in particular, shooting clay pigeons. She isn't a fan of recoil, but she says it looks like...

    Will my Professional Hunter want me to bring more than a .270

    Got myself some Trail Boss powder for developing a reduced practice load for the yet-to-arrive .300 RUM. Couldn't resist trying it in my .30-06. Normally this rifle is uncomfortable for me to shoot much at the range, as it is quite light and has a hard plastic buttplate. With 17 gr of Trail Boss...

    Will my Professional Hunter want me to bring more than a .270

    North Fork bullets seem to get a lot of attention so I looked them up... BWAHAHA for over $2 a piece I think I'll keep looking.

    Will my Professional Hunter want me to bring more than a .270

    I've got an H&R Buffalo Classic in .45-70. Loaded with 325 gr FTXs at full power and with a metal butt that rifle lets me know what's going on. Hopefully this rig won't be quite as uncomfortable. I'll definitely be working on a reduced load for plinking and getting comfortable with the gun, not...
