    What keeps you from taking your dream hunt to Africa because you are afraid coming home empty handed

    What happen to Ruger?

    I think I lost respect for Ruger today. I was doing a gun search. And found that they do not offer anymore guns in the bolt action above the 375 level other than the 375 Ruger and 416 Ruger. What a shame! They still offer options in their single shot rifles but no bolt action????

    What animal do you think is the most overrated for the trophy fee? Or daily fees that make it expens

I can't justify all the $10000+ hunts I see, and I tend to see a lot $15000 hunts when you add all the cost up. The only way I could see cape buffalo...

    Is Africa game more difficult to kill than animals from the rest of the world...Yes or NO?

    NO, I don't think Africa game is any different, than any other animals. If you look at the biological make-up of the is bones and tissue or just cells. I think each animal has it different characteristics, but in the end, they are not that different. I think some of the game over...
