    Photos/ideas of what to do with extra hides/leather

    G'day Tra3, I have never done leather work, except patching up my old single bed mattress, as the springs kept on popping out, so I would sew old leather patches over the spots causing the trouble. Making your own creations out of leather work sounds useful, as you never have enough knife...

    Hunting A Rogue Asiatic Elephant

    Major Khan, you must be a man of great influence to promote the above changes to the .303 British Cartridge in the Munitions Factory. Besides being a lot cheaper to produce, and copper being expensive, were there any particular reasons with this recommendation. ? Regards Rob

    Hunting A Rogue Asiatic Elephant

    Well done Professor, that was a hair raising hunt, and what a trophy, I didn't realize that the Asian Elephants tusks grew that large. :Finger: Quick thinking about the last shot to prevent your death, it may not have been sporting, but it's rare for anyone to outrun a rogue elephant. You...

    Great white shark attack- Australia

    That is what I call scary as hell ! Thank god he survived. I have fished up north and feel terribly uncomfortable when a tiger shark decides to just sit in the current behind the anchored bait, it feels so sinister. This particular tiger would eat every 'Tricky Snapper', that I hooked on...

    G'day Professor Thank you for your interesting response, I can see the cormorants in a more interesting light now :) I am located in Victoria, I am guessing that you may have hunted sambar, or some of our other imported deer species while you were here? I have friends who still eagerly stalk...

    Great white shark attack- Australia

    The whites have always traveled up and down the coast, usually following the food supply (like whales). A few resident sharks remain in the Southern states to gobble up the local seals and porpoises, but in general they travel with the food supply. THe Great Aussie Shark Hunter 'Vic Hislop'...

    Sight, sound or smell, which evokes African Safari the most?

    Looks as though everyone has it covered, sound is a good one though, as I recall the screaming eerie calls of the tree hyraxes, the bark of the geckos, and yes, the terrifying buzz of a carpenter bee, when you prod at it in the holes that they have made in the ceiling rafter beams, and the...

    Magical Catch

    G'day Longwalker, Now that would have been something to see, your father has outdone me for sure. Two Northern Pike would have been so much more challenging, and great to witness too. :)(y) I will need to add that to my bucket list :) Tight Lines Rob

    Magical Catch

    Earlier this year I was bait fishing for Black Bream in the Maribyrnong River, Victoria, Australia. I was catching a few under size Black Bream on light gear, they are excellent fighters, when I hooked a larger fish which appeared to be going crazy, fighting differently. I immediately assumed...

    Military Surplus Rifles for Hunting

    G'day Doctor Ray Quick question, why did you cross over to the .270,? Was it a recoil factor, or did you prefer the flatter trajectory and speed of the lighter bullets for the medium size deer species? Both calibers are great performers, though I do recall my friend complaining about the recoil...

    Knives - Why?

    I may not be able to carry a knife legally in the big smoke, but when I go bush, or fishing, I carry a blade, as you never know when you may be forced to use it. Thankfully I have only needed to use mine for the basics that a fishing and hunting knife are for. Australia may be a safer country...

    Thank you for sharing Aussie hunter, I have been told that wild horses get terribly worn hooves, and will need a foot model to stand in for them if they ever go into a pony show contest. The weathering of the hoof surely will tell a story in its own right. Absolutely fascinating, thank you once...
