    My Top Ten Gear Items For Safari

    You’re right that most everyone “figure out what works” eventually. I just want to help the first timer get a jump on the mistakes and over packing most of us did years ago! Thanks, Philip

    Shooting Sticks

    Correct this is the downside to quad sticks. You can’t swing on a moving animal.

    Shooting Sticks

    Thanks One Day. Certainly there is a big difference between my tiny little 7Mag, that I love, and big DG calibers. My video series is directed to the “first timer” as it has become my passion to introduce as many hunters as I can to Africa. It is not particularly focused on DG. Your point is...

    This is what they teach at SAAM shooting school. Sounds like you have it down!

    Shooting Sticks

    Depends on the caliber, the sticks, and the shooter. This is why I am not making recommendations on how to use sticks in this video as there are many ways to do it. Some instruct to hold on to the sling and the sticks, some hold the rifle, and some the sticks. Each shooter needs to find his or...

    Perfect idea! The more time on the sticks the better.

    WANTED: Pricing A Wild Managed Lion Hunt For 2022

    Cost is hard to determine because of bait cost. Lions eat a lot and in a 21 day hunt it can take tens of thousands of dollars of bait. This is not a leopard hunt. You must have huge baits that they can't finish in one night or they are gone. They rot and have to be replaced over and over. "Wild...

    Recoil Mitigation

    Thanks. Each person has to find what is comfortable for them when on the sticks. This is why I stress practice instead of trying to demonstrate what I do when It may not work well for everyone.

    KYRGYZTAN: Kyrgyzstan Ibex Hunt 2014

    I am a total flat lander and altitude is hard on me. I was not sick as I took the Diamox but I was not in good enough shape and should have trained more. The first two days were terrible on me but it got better.

    MONGOLIA: Mongolia Ibex & Roe Deer Hunt

    Thanks, it was quite an adventure. My mounts should be done pretty soon. What a memory they will be!

    MONGOLIA: Mongolia Ibex & Roe Deer Hunt

    Yes I’ve trained at SAAM a few times and it was so valuable. My Tikka is right out of the box. It shoots under 1” groups at 100 and I’ve been good on gongs out to 1000. In this world where everyone thinks they need a custom gun I just want to share my experience with the Tikka. For actual...

    Shooting Sticks

    I have a brief rundown of the various shooting sticks here and discuss their application in preparing for your next safari. I believe shooting and hunting off sticks regularly is the best safari prep a person can do. Regards, Philip PS Checkout how little recoil there is from my Tikka 7mm Mag...

    Savage 99

    I’d say see what you can do at 100 yards and see if you can move up to 180gr bullets preferably Barnes. You should do well and what a neat gun. Philip

    WANTED: Hippo Hunt 2021

    Hippo is a great animal to hunt and classic Africa! You are going to have to travel as the EC is no place to hunt hippo. In fact Zim is your best bet so you’ll be putting together two safaris.

    Limited Edition rifles investment?

    Quality rifles can hold their value but rarely do they go up in value. I know there are certain situations where rifles can go up in value but it is rare. The only guns that for sure go up in value annually are Transferrable machine guns here in the US (in states where they are legal!).

    Finally took a leap

    I have one, not limited edition, 12g 32” barrels, and I shoot really well with it. Philip

    Quiet Muzzle Break

    On wood stocks they normally go in the draw bolt hole. Some guns need a hole drilled out by a gunsmith and synthetic stocks can be done various ways. Some guns we’ve put 2 reducers in. I suggest sending the stock to Edward’s and have them do it. It is fairly inexpensive.

    Red Dot/Reflex or Low Power Scope for 416 Rem Mag?

    .257 Roberts

    Have a friend who swore by that caliber for whitetail. He was a ranch hand and shot tons of deer with his over the years.

    Red Dot/Reflex or Low Power Scope for 416 Rem Mag?

    I agree with the scope. I’ve used a Leupold VX6 1-6 with red dot on a .416, and a 2-12X on a .375.

    Quiet Muzzle Break

    Interesting that they claim 85% recoil reduction. It looks like a normal brake to me so how could it be quiet? I guess you need to try it out and see how it works. I’d like to hear a report here on AH. I’m done with brakes and use Edward’s recoil reducers in all my rifles and suppressors in some...

    Man-in-the-middle caliber

    We all love buying another gun! I do not see the value in a .338 when you have a .375. The .375 Ruger will do anything you want it to do. I think it’s a brilliant round and I have 2 of them. I will never own a .338. Philip

    Lion Hunt

    You need to explain whether you are interested in a nonexportable ranched lion hunt or a true wilderness hunt with a possibility of export of the trophy. They prices will be vastly different depending on what you are looking for and budget.

    United EWR-JNB

    Plus no suppressors on that route.

    Delta Update

    They just announced, with the United announcements, DL204 will be a daily flight starting in March. It was 5X per week and I am sure we are screwed on the price we paid, oh well at least we got the front row of Premium for our group! So much changing right now. If folks are not particular where...

    Delta Update

    My group is on Premium Select as well.

    Correct but we are skipping JNB and going straight to CPT thus missing the extra 4 hours of misery!
  45. Philip Glass

    Delta Update

    Yes that is our plan. We will just hop from PLZ to CPT then off to ATL. CPT is an international airport just like JNB so no problem. My very first flight to Africa arrived in CPT!

    Had the same problems one time with Delta.

They also spent an inexcusable amount of time reading their note on gun cases and yes what can...

    Take this one to bed

    Thoughts on DG Prep 1. Don’t use reloads. Too many stories to tell here. Just ask some PH’s. 2. At the range try hard to make your gun jam. Do everything you can think of besides complete and total abuse. 3. Read DG stories and get advice from those who have been many times and been in dangerous...
