    April 21 - 2024, Surf Casting for Sharks: After breakfast, we all climbed into the two vehicles, Kelley, Don, myself and Juan in ours, following Gelhar and his crew in theirs. We travelled north, along the coast from Hentiesbaai, perhaps 20 or 30 kilometers ? Then we turned off the road and...

    NAMIBIA: A New Lodge For KHOMAS HIGHLAND HUNTING SAFARIS Of Namibia

    Anyway —> Leaving Swakopmund. After supper we got back into our chariot and travelled north about 70 kilometers to Hentiesbaai. (“Henties Bay” in English). It was dark by then so there wasn’t much to see as we rolled along. But, the drive was only about an hour and the road was smooth so, this...

    Orvis T3 12 Weight 9' Fly Rod

    Old Velo Dog owns this very same rod. Whomever buys this one for sale here, (provided they pursue some real whoppers), will be tickled pink. Note: Couple this rod with a Billy Pate model Tarpon reel and you will be very well equipped for large fish “on the fly”, globally. No pressure, just sayin’ .

    NAMIBIA: A New Lodge For KHOMAS HIGHLAND HUNTING SAFARIS Of Namibia

    1,000 Kilometer Road Trip, 1st Stop —> The Beach Town of Swakopmund. I believe it was April 19th, that we rolled out from Lodge Aub, around mid-afternoon, up there in those game rich hills of The Khomas Hochland Highlands. But it might have been April 20th. Not super important really. Anyway...

    custom barrel length for big game, dangerous game bolt action rifles

    No shorter than 22” and no longer than 24” on bolt action rifles for dangerous game. This is only my preference, not necessarily for everyone.

    Double-up

    Hi Saul, Thanks for that. And yes, rebounding hammers. As previously mentioned, Cal Pappas had very much to do with my decision to buy that rifle, back in the day. I think it was himself that said my rifle was definitely designed originally for nitro pressures, not a black powder action...

    NAMIBIA: A New Lodge For KHOMAS HIGHLAND HUNTING SAFARIS Of Namibia

    Hi again PARA45, Re: The black wildebeest, thanks, I agree he’s a great specimen. I’ve hunted one in their original natural habitat, up in The Highveld, on top of the Drakaansburg Mountains. There it seemed like their horn bosses were not as thick as the ones I’ve shot in Namibia’s Khomas...

    Black Wildebeest (“clown of the veld”): I believe it was April 18 that I shot this particular animal. At any rate, after another Namibian breakfast of meat, eggs, tomato slices, fruit, homemade bread toasted, butter, jam, coffee or tea, fruit juice and deep well water, off we went, just after...

    375 for plains game

    Hi steve71, My favorite hunting cartridge of all time is the .375 H&H, including for Africa’s “plains game”. It is easier on capes and skins when shooting small critters like jackal, steinbok, etc., than faster cartridges are (the various .300 magnums come to mind). And, the .375 H&H is none...
