    I have used Shawn Kennedy at Gracy. Never disappointed. Bruce in JoBurg is a Saint. My last trip was June/July 2022, so this info is current.

    Older Legs ... A Cape Buff Hunt With Lower Physical Requirements?

    Hi Nomadx2. I saw your Post and wanted to say heck yes you can go! I got back from a Cape Buffalo hunt in the Eastern Cape of South Africa the 23rd of July. I was there for 30 days and hunted quite a mixed bag of animals. Cape Buffalo was my main thrust. I went with Meyrick Bowker of Bowker...

    Ruger 375 H&H Houston For Sale

    Hi there Tim! You said it has been shot a bit, how is the bore? I could be interested in the rifle and rings. Would like to see a picture of the fore stock, bbl, and front sight if possible. Thanks.

    Comment by 'Larry Mikelsen' in media '500 gr DGS Bullet Peformance'

    I hunted SA last May and experienced frontal shot failures with my .375 H&H Hornady 300gr DGX into a Sable at 100 yards; and a .458 Lott 500gr Hornady DGX into a Cape Buffalo at 81 yards. Both bullets exploded with not a lot of penetration, and required much follow up. These were the unbonded...

    Lever Action Rifles In Africa?

    Took a Gemsbok, Zebra, and Blue Wildebeest in SA in 2008 with my Marlin 1895 using Garrett 420 gr. Hammerheads. Worked really well.

    Open Sighted 45-70 in Africa

    The .45-70 question always seems to prompt an interesting discussion. I have personally hunted Africa using a 1895 Marlin and Garrett 420 gr. Hammerhead ammo. I drove a Garrett 420 gr. clear through a Blue Wildebeest at 125 yards (left chest through the rump and the bullet kept going). I...

    Possible Contact Ardent, Welcome to the Forum. A lot of useful information and tips from a lot of experienced hunters available here. Thought I would pass on a conversation I have with Terry Wagner of Worldwide Hunting this past Saturday. We were talking buffalo hunting and Terry told me...

    Binocular recommendations?

    Vortex Binoculars Thought I just might throw another binocular into the mix. I upgraded a fine set of Nikon 8X binos last year (getting older and need a wee bit more magnification) and spent some field time checking out my options. I finally cut it down to three binoculars: the Leopold Gold...

    Anyone using a 45/70

    This discussion is pretty much down to two opposing camps. The real bottom line here is what the hunter and the PH are comfortable with. That is where DG hunts with archery and black powder come from. To some that is a hunt, to others that is suicide. Without being judgmental here, I suggest...

    More Greetings from Seattle

    Hi Mary! You handled my trophies from Taxidermy Africa RSA earlier this year. You were my good example in the discussion on shipping of trophies. Good to see you jump into the discussions. There are lots of questions people have on getting their trophies home. To the rest of you out there...

    Taxidermy shipping-ship or airplane?

    One more item Enysee, One thing I forgot to pass on is that I got a written quote for my anticipated taxidermy work prior to even going to RSA. I took that with me and did not allow my PH to steer me to "his" taxidermist. As it was, we did both like the same taxidermist (but that was just...

    Cooking Fresh Meats - Tenderness, Flavor & Juiciness

    At Least we all Agree in Gracy Travel Hi browningbbr, The .45-70 levergun for Africa DG is always a lively topic. A lot of opinions, and little practical knowledge. Everyone to there own opinion! I do not buy into the minimum 4,000 lb. minimum energy idea. Must admit, I know of minimum...

    Taxidermy shipping-ship or airplane?

    Air vs. Sea Hi all, just wanted to pass my experience. I received my trophies from RSA this past May. One crate (342 lbs., 67" x 52" x 43") with nine mounts and one rug in it along with a few other "must haves". First to back up a wee bit. Prior to going to RSA I spoke to my taxidermist...

    The right .45-70 lever gun Interesting discussion. Thought I might just weigh in with my personal experience. I own a 1895 Marlin in .45-70. The rifle has been refined and customized for me by Jim Brockman (Brockman's Rifles) in Gooding, Idaho, and set up to shoot Randy Garrett's 420 gr. &...

    Federal Brass: "FC" v "FC 07" v "FC 08"

    Hey browningbbr, how you doing? My understanding is that the FC 07 or FC 08 tells you it is Federal Cartridge produced in 2007 & 2008 (i.e. "production runs"). Sort of like LC 05 (Lake City Ammunition Plant, 2005 production run). Will be interesting to see how they weigh up AND the measured...
