    Shooting Sticks

    excellent video, good music (who is it ? ) Im always usings sticks during stalking. No matter where in the world. In different types and despite long experience I have no favourite. The most precise shots go with the example no. 2 you call them viperflex sticks if I heard that right. I prefer a...

    Tanzania & The Hunting Monks

    Some time ago I reported on a visit to the Benedictine monastery of St. Ottilien, near Munich. The present abbey was founded in 1898 by Cassian Spiß to missionize the - at that time non-Christian - population of Ungoni(Ruvuma Region). In 1931 Peramiho became a territorial abbey and thus the...

    What to do with a giraffe

    bashing has never been intended. I'm sorry if that's how it was understood. For god's creation, a giraffe is not more worth as a mouse. And the Africans don't understand anyway why the Europeans hardly shoot a giraffe. For many people it is simply not hunting game and the thought of how to...

    Red dot or reflex sight for double rife

    I have a Burris fast fire III on it. With one barell I shoot at 100m in a 3 cm circle. An Aimpoint is probably the best choice. But it will disfigure any beautiful double rifle. It looks like a frozen dog pile, I didn't want to do that to my Ferlach :-)

    How far is too far?

    For me it is not possible to determine this in meters. Those who live in desert landscapes, or in the mountains grow up with completely different situations than a forest hunter. The latter are totally overstrained (and hopefully don't do it) when a roe has to be shot at 170 m. But they are...

    Bullets For Buffalo

    I politely disagree. There are good reasons for the solid. Especially if you have to shoot far or thick cover. If a solid comes across, there is a deep hole in it, but this is not the case with an expanding bullet. Almost all the old buffalos I have seen were found in dense stuff, so I prefer a...

    Scholar, the British have brutally fought, oppressed and expelled the Boers. Their suffering with the English did not only take place during the last two Boer wars. Nevertheless no Boer could tell me yet why his grandfathers decided against Lettow Vorbeck and fought for the English. Foxi

    Namibia - a new leopard record?

    The (too) high spinal shot can also have shattered a vertebra. A splinter of the bullet is sufficient for this. My old dog also had sunken eyes (during his last years) And what do the experts say about the scale? Broken of course, what else. Or the PH has still hung. Next week I will know more...

    450 Rigby vs 458 Lott

    "The 458 Lott is a killing machine and has been doing it in Africa with ease for many years. 500 grains at 2300 FPS can bring down anything on this planet with a correctly placed shot. " when I load my 458 Win Mag strongly I also get these data. But as you know it is no good in AH :E Frightened:

    450 Rigby vs 458 Lott

    why so modest take both If you would live in Africa take the Lott, try to get the Rigby in Arusha or Bulawayo........... RSA is not a benchmark for Africa. RSA is almost Europe with a predominantly black population. The real Africa is over the border and pragmatism is called for.

    Namibia - a new leopard record?

    yes, hard to believe, but it is not for nothing that records are extraordinary (although it is not about one, but only about an extraordinary example that I want to show, that's all) In the Abadares, leopards have been shot with these weights. Anyway- the farmer's scale showed 100kg in a...

    Hi folks, got these pics from a friend.This Tom was shot last Monday. A lucky snapshot on the way to the bait. The scale showed only maximum 100 kg. Big like a lioness. They guessed him at 120 kg and minimum 15 years. What a monster from the Komas Highlands. Waidmannsheil to this outstanding...

    Scope for large caliber rifle, NEGATIVE selection

    For me, an Africa caliber starts at .400 up. The 375 is a strong middle caliber (in my eyes) for African conditions. I have a Swarowski 3-12x56, for my .375, actually too much . But the gun is not only used in Africa, I am not unhappy about it . Important as far away from the eye as possible the...
