    Affordable big bores no longer being offered by the big guys.

    I hear you and feel your frustration. Affordable big bores north of the 49th are a rare and soon to be extinct it seems but if you haven't yet, check out Prophet River's website at Lloydminster, just might get lucky

    Cross wildebeest off the list?

    I've taken a Blue, Golden and Black, all essentially one shot kills, all with a 300 Win Mag, all 180 gr bullets, all at 150 to 200 yards. They're not invincible but they don't give up they're willingness to live easily. If you look hard enough you can find anything you want on YouTube.

    Long trousers?

    So there's these two guys walking down the sidewalk and on the other side of the street they notice this old dog just lying there and licking his balls. The first guy says to his buddy, "Don't you wish you could do that?"His friend replies " "Sure do, but do you think he would let me?" Maybe its...

    How did our Grandparents stack up, compared to kids today

    It looks like it is a sophomore college equivalent. What do you say to a graduate of Liberal Arts degree? "I'd like to supersize those fries please"

    Your endorsement for a limited edition of Ruger Rifles

    All would be great additions to my collection but I doubt that they would be available in the great white north, somewhere between Montana and Alaska. I dare to dream.

    Free Range Namibia?

    On my trips to Africa on safari I always tried to hunt species that were indigenous to the area of the hunt. In Namibia this was greater kudu, gemsbok, warthog and others but not royal sable. Royal sable, because it was not indigenous, became very expensive, I could hunt it but not at that price...

    Canadian super pigs

    In defence of the farmers in Alberta that tried the Russian boar venture, believe it or not there were people entering his property at night and cutting the fence to let the hogs out so that they could shoot them. Then they went feral. Initially the farmer would offer wild pig roasts at company...

    Not looking good for uk gun owners....

    This must limit the hunting in Great Britain to the sport of only the very well heeled. I have to wonder how anyone there can afford or even use any of the fine British guns that reknowned craftsman there build.

    SOUTH AFRICA: Buffalo, Sable & More With Chris Troskie Safaris

    Very well done report, a good friend of mine had a buffalo hunt with Chris in 2015 and also had a very enjoyable hunt. Nice buffalo with good character. Congratulations. Now you will have to begin saving for the next trip.

    Fed Ex Canada No Longer Shipping Taxidermy

    In my experience, shipping trophies into Canada has become a royal pain in the arse. Not long ago trophies could be flown to various airports, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton,Toronto, Montreal etc, any international airport. Now, if it's DG or CITES listed animal, it has to go through Toronto where...

    Dealing with wounded Cape buffalo

    Ditto: also before the hunt the PH that I had observed my handling of my firearm and he expressed his satisfaction of the handing and his expectations. We came to the understanding that the backup shot, if required would only be as a last resort and only if anyone in our party would be endangered.

    Are the new Hornady cartridges necessary?

    26-06, 270 WIN, 30-06 (all from the 30-06 family) 7x57 Mauser 300 H&H 300 Win Mag, 338 Win Mag, 458 Win Mag (offspring of the 300 H&H) 375 H&H 416 Rigby. All work wonderfully in the right application I was once told that nothing is new, only rediscovered. But that's why I'm not into marketing.

    Dealing with wounded Cape buffalo

    The only problem I have heard of with a bolt action is the hunter short stroking it. I know of one hunter who had that issue and he was a proficient shooter, but when the adrenalin is pumping I guess it can happen. Any DG rifle in proper form should be fine. Practice practice practice. Thats why...

    Bill C21 Canada

    That is the exact reason(s) why all 338 MPs received a personal snail mail letter of protest as well as about 40 other government officials who are involved with this idiocy from myself. And thumbs up to the CCFR for there diligence and hard work to stop this dictatorial agenda.

    Today there is a glimmer of hope for the firearms owners, hunters and recreational shooters in Canada.

    Canada's proposed new gun laws...

    Today February 3, 2023. Canadian Feederal Gov't repeals ammemdments to their firearms act regarding long guns and shotguns. They received a large and growing pushback from the firearms community. Maybe a start to the end of this insanity that they were trying to sneak through.

    Trophy Eurasian Boar Hunt At The Rockin G Ranch

    One of the last times I visited Montana, pre covid, the border security officer really pissed me off and when he asked me why I was travelling to the US, business or pleasure. I told him that it was no business of his, "None of yours". He got real testy after that until I asked him "Where do I...

    Trophy Eurasian Boar Hunt At The Rockin G Ranch

    Thanks Gizmo, what I had in mind was a Ruger 1 in 45-70, 300 gr Swift A Frames. I ve taken a black bear, a moose and several deer with it so I suspect that it should be adequate. The only real big issue is covid vax status as I am one of the unvaxxed heathens that the US govt still turns back at...

    Hunting SA or "Wild" Africa - Which is Better

    You don't have to go to Tanzania, Mozambique, Zambia or Zimbabwe to get wild buffalo. There are hunting areas adjacent to Kruger National Park in RSA that the animals can cross into the concessions from the park simply by crossing the Luluvu river. Bear in mind that they can cross back into the...

    I would like to recommend Pieter Potgieter of Motsomi Safari. Between him, his wife Ria and his PH Marco, they provided us with a wonderful safari, buffalo in Makuya, plains game on their other properties. Ria was very accommodating on the after hunt activities although shopping wasn't on our to...

    For Sale Trijicon Accupoint 1-4

    Couldn't agree more on your comments. Fantastic for any DG in close, any dark coloured game, black bear, moose, royal sable, Cape buffalo, Bison and Musk Ox (someday maybe). And four power is plenty enough for longer shots up to 200 yards. I took all my game at 1x. Good luck on the sale.

    After talking to the PH's that I have used I came upon the same conclusion. I've been told of clients attitudes that would curl your hair.
