    Kowas Safaris can't be beat. Plains game S or Windhoek, or dangerous game and plains game in the Caprivi. Some of the best people and best hunters you will ever meet.

    US Passport Update

    Yeah, well, hindsight is 20/20 isn't it? If you would have told the forum back in February or early March that it would take many months for a passport renewal you'd have been laughed out of this place. You obviously made a good call renewing early, but many of us who sent in renewals in...

    DSC and SCI Shows 2021 - What are your feelings in the current environment?

    Some will stay curled up in the corner of their house, in the fetal position. Others will get on with life knowing there's just as good a chance of winning the lottery than getting killed by COVID. Fear has no place in my life.

    Canada moose hunt recommendations

    I have a hunt booked with Art Ryan at Mountain Top Outfitters in Newfoundland for September 2020. I'm not at all certain Canada will open up by then, so I'm giving my chances about 60/40 of it not happening. Art promised that if the hunt doesn't happen because of the COVID bs, he will...

    Upland Game Pants for Hunting Africa

    Dwight, the Kuhl Rydr pants are superb, flexible, breathable, and tough. Did you check those out? They are far from skinny jeans no matter how they look.

    Soonest/Safest return to South Africa?

    According to data obtained from the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics Mortality Surveillance System website, total U.S. deaths for the first three weeks of March are DOWN 10% from the average of the prior four years for the same three week period. The average for weeks 9 through 11...

    Soonest/Safest return to South Africa?

    Not sure why anyone thought you could trust a politician, gov't entity, etc in the first place, especially the clowns at WHO. You surely can't trust the Chinese about anything. Maybe the doomsdayers can get out of the corner and uncurl from the fetal position shortly.

    Happy Easter!

    I realize it's next Sunday, but thought I'd put up something positive in these worrisome times. I think we need to spend more time thinking about the positives than all the negativity the world would like to focus on.

    Soonest/Safest return to South Africa?

    Good post JKO. I hope for the best for all the good outfitters in Africa, and across the globe for that matter. Biggest problem I see is if the majority of Africans take this COVID outbreak with the same level of seriousness as they have the AIDS epidemic, it won't go well for the continent...

    Change of plans anyone?

    I've got a Canadian moose hunt booked for mid September. I guess we'll see. If COVID dictates the hunt can't take place the outfitter said I'll get the deposit back in full anyway.

    Loading for Long Range minimum group size, how I do it

    I like to neck size my fire formed brass, and only FL size if necessary. I'm not a precision competition shooter though. I'm on my 8th reloading with 6.5CM and 7-08 cases.

    Safari and a Mission Trip

    The outfitter I've hunted with in Namibia is very active in giving. We spent a couple of days delivering food to local schools, villages, etc and it was a very, very gratifying and blessed experience.

    What is the typical method for hunting a captive bred lion?

    Agree with redleg. My two neighbors (that weigh about 325+lbs each BTW) went on a CBL shoot about 4 years ago. They video'd the event and I watched it with them as they proudly showed a couple of us their accomplishment. Although they are nice people, Neither one of these folks could...

    Best Flight Route US to Windhoek?

    City Lodge in the airport is fine if you want convenience, but Africa Sky is fantastic, great food, free beer, plenty of room to walk around and stretch the ol' legs........Africa Sky also has a US bank account where you can physically go deposit money into their account for your bill before you...

    Best Looking Safari Shirt?

    I like the discontinued Cableas safari shirts the best, which can be found on ebay. For hot weather I use Magellan fishing shirts that can be found at Academy. Carhartt pants for everything. When I plan to go hunting, whether Africa, MX, or wherever, how I look occupies less than 1% of...

    Qatar Flight

    Just checked Qatar from Dallas to WDH for late July. Roughly $1850 for economy. If I go I will probably try this route and carrier to avoid JBurg, avoid SAPS, overnight, etc.

    Experience with Nosler Accubonds

    I've killed at least 100 big game animals with accubond bullets of the 7mm variety....140's and 160's. I've had impacts on big mule deer at 30 yds from a 7mag, and 450 yd kills with 140's from a 7mm08. I have no complaints at all and am very impressed with their performance. Most of the...

    Q&A with Boddington

    I'd still like to know how he has managed to hunt all over the world, keep his custom rifles, etc after filing bankruptcy and screwing his creditors by not paying bills he owed. Seems like a reasonable question to me and a few others around here.

    CB Finance debate, Egg Recipes, etc.

    So let's get this straight. You see nothing wrong with a guy not paying his bills, perhaps putting his creditors in financial hardship, while all the while traveling all over the world to hunt? While his wife spends lavishly? While his high $$$ gun collection remains untouched? Seriously?

    CB Finance debate, Egg Recipes, etc.

    What's ever more sad is people that consider unethical behavior as normal, or acceptable. It does say alot about you though.

    Flight/hotel planning

    The only reason I'd pick City Lodge over Africa Sky is convenience. Africa Sky puts it to shame in the food, areas to take a leisurely stroll, free brews categories.

    Vortex Fury HD 5000 Range Finding Binocular

    Over 300 "big game" animals. For years we culled numerous unwanted aoudad in the W TX Trans Pecos and caprock areas, and loads of whitetail does on MLD ground. Been shooting Tikkas for over 20 years now FWIW. This doesn't include hundreds of wild hogs.

    Vortex Fury HD 5000 Range Finding Binocular

    Good post TTundra. Anyone that thinks the alphas are not prone to breakage is kidding themselves, or doesn't have much experience. I personally knew of 6 Swaro scopes go belly up (1 of them was mine) when talking to various hunters that came to our camps. A guy could search a couple of...

    Vortex Fury HD 5000 Range Finding Binocular

    I've been to Africa several times, and I wouldn't even consider not taking my binos on a walk, stalk, sitting a waterhole, or whatever. Whether or not a guy likes the bino/rf all in one unit is a personal choice, but the advantages to having one is very obvious.

    Vortex Fury HD 5000 Range Finding Binocular

    I do own several nice binos, including Swaro SV, Meostar HD, Swaro SLC, and a few others. For over 15 years we were a small time outfitter for whitetails, muleys, antelope, aoudad sheep. We had over 150 hunters in camp and I got to see and use most everything that I didn't own, and that...

    Gater, I have been in the market for a bino/rf unit for a couple of years now, and have seen and used them all except for the new GPO unit that's not available yet, and the new Meopta made Leupold unit, which is a rebadged Meorange, which is fantastic. I have compared the Nikon...
