    Western Australian PC wokes at it again

    Sad... But is is the reality.. I would certainly wish everybody could post what he wants but that is not how the world works. Hunting African game has become controversial, do not post pictures with you and the animal if you know their is a chance the antis will weaponize it. A few more...

    Would you like a Cigar?

    Last night was a 2 cigar night. First a Partagas No. 1 Maduro. Smooth smoke, light Cedar, first some cream and floral notes. Later white pepper. But probably the pairing with the scotch overwhelmed the flavours of the cigar. Switched to a coca cola after the scotch, also because I had to...

    Would you like a Cigar?

    After work, nice craft beer and a Partagas Aristocrats. Second stick I smoked from these. Construction of first one was flawed, this one was great. Taste was great from Both. This small stick packsa punch. Starting with hints of cream, some wood flavour (oak?). White pepper on the retrohale...

    Would you like a Cigar?

    Great thread... The wife and kids are away and monday being my day off I decided to light on up. Gurkha Heritage, nice medium stick. Gurkha is hit and miss but the Heritage ones I am enjoying. Cedar notes, must, leather and a hint of something sweet.

    Where Did All The Real Hunters Go?

    @Tanks I see what you mean now. I can better understand your position. My understanding was that his main point was that their was a lack of basic hunting skills and that technology made that worse. For me it seemed more a challenge to educate myself in having betterprimal survival skills...

    Where Did All The Real Hunters Go?

    I understand your sentiment. My post was not particularly directed at you. I would understand the reasoning better if it was a one man company who would outright say he only was willing to do work for what his definition of a hunter was. This is not the case I think. It seems rather a poor...

    Where Did All The Real Hunters Go?

    I try to be as polite as I can but give the guy a break. So he made a wrong calculation, maybe stepped on some toes. Who cares. Are we fellows, as. a part of the hunting community, part of the cancel culture now? I'm not, the guy has an opinion on a hunting forum. Quite the shocker.

    Mark Sullivan shows us how to handle a Double Rifle

    Probably not the most popular opinion... But I liket thevideo's of Mark. Today I received 12 of the, the whole collection, of dvd's he offers on his website. Saw 2 films before that and enjoyed them. Also mailing with him was a pleasure he is quite the gentleman. I would compare him more to a...

    What do hunters look for when researching / booking their safaris?

    Two main points; - good reviews/hunting references ( Google is your friend) - a swift and polite answer on emails or when to expect a detailed response. The latter on all the points that are mentioned regarding the preferences what I would like for that specific hunt (e.g. area size, animal...

    Which is the best game meat?

    No, not kidding. Some Swiss hunters eat it, they call it fuchspfeffer. Here is a video from Deutsche Jagdzeitung. Thinking about it to experiment with it this weekend. If I shoot it I will try to eat it

    How (I Personally Believe) The Future Of Hunting Can Be Saved

    Last polls in the Netherlands are showing that a majority is for hunting. The Royal Dutch Hunting Association is doing, finally after decades without action, its job. That said it is showing a support for the hunting that takes place over here. I think support for hunting DG in Africa would...

    Ever OK to shoot from a truck?

    Hunting big game is called management and is mainly seen as a management tool over here, shooting from a car is legal, in some areas the only way the landowner or the forestry agency will let you shoot is from your car. This way they think you are not a disturbing the recreationists. Luckily...

    How (I Personally Believe) The Future Of Hunting Can Be Saved

    @375Fox . As a 32 year old Hunter, Let me say I mostly agree with you, certainly on the issue of non-toxic shot and bullets. Albeit bullets in a lesser degree. I think unity is the key, certainly on issues like CBL Hunting. My opinion is that while you may disagree on the subject it would be...

    Which is the best game meat?

    Venison from Roe deer is good. It is the main game meat I eat. Have eaten jackdawns and crows in a pie, it was good. Have some Fox meat in the freezer, haven't eaten it yet.

    How (I Personally Believe) The Future Of Hunting Can Be Saved

    @Bob Nelson 35Whelen . This is so true. A lot of it is not having knowledge about hunting. Lot of non-hunters are having trouble understanding that we kill in order to hunt instead of hunting in order to kill. Besides lots of them having issues with pictures of the trophy with the hunter...

    First this is not personal. But I am reacting to the sentiment your posting. So tired of the " but brigade". But but... It has nothing to do with these people. It is only a stick to beat us with for these people. So there a a few bad apples, cry me a river. Even if all of our were saints they...

    Rhodesia/Zimbabwe Loses A Bit More History & Tradition

    Well, I hope you are right but that is the utopian in me. In Europe we still are picking the fruits of the hippie-generation. They destroyed religion and their mass imigration pitted one citizen against the other. The youth does not believe in anything anymore. Except instant gratification.Taxes...

    Rhodesia/Zimbabwe Loses A Bit More History & Tradition

    Let me get a bit philosophical. In theNetherlands there was a mass protest despite the corona measures. The left wing mayor of Amsterdam allowed it. Whilst recently we werent allowed to visit a dying family member. The prime minister said our "Black Pete" tradition must go because of the magic...

    Ah forgot that scene. Great movie btw. When seeing your avatar I remember I forgot to mention the film Roar (1981). Crazy scenes with lots of Lions and tigers. Remember reading An article that mentioned 70 crew members being hurt by the animals. It it set in Kenya, very amusing movie.
