    AWD vehicles in snow opinions

    We've owned both a Toyote 4runner AWD & a Highlander AWD. The 4runner will handle deeper snow diue to more ground clearance.. We have done 6"+ in the Highlander with the winter tires. Pretty much any AWD vehicle will do 2" of snow now issues, especially if you have snow tires.

    375 H&H Sako Kodiak For Sale

    Optilocks were one thought, but I was hoping to find a quick detach style. I have lots of time yet to find something as I don't have any hunts with it planned as of yet. I only got the rifle as it was too good of deal to pass up.

    Hawaii hunts?

    I know its not hunting, but if you enjoy fishing Kona on the big island is one of the best spots for Blue marlin, as well as one of the few spots you can get onto shortbill spearfish. I found the fishing was a better deal than the hunting... Oh and if you are going to Hawaii, plan more than 4...

    Calgary to Windhoek flights?

    When I went to SA I went Calgary - Frankfurt - Johannesburg, with about a 8hr layover in Frankfurt. We ended up napping a little at the airport, the arrival times didn't work for a day room. As for the guns, they were checked through from Edmonton (where I left from) to Jo-Burg, and never had...

    For Tapatalk the forum admin must set it up to use the app, I don't think it has been done yet.

If AH is using the vBulletin software, from what I understand...

    Uncharted by Jim Shockey

    It hasn't aired up north yet.. :( Though if you want to watch some whitetail hunting with true wild deer watch Canadian Whitetail Television (if it airs south of the border) or catch Hunting Canada & Beyond.. 2 true hunting shows... Both are hosted by down home Saskatchewan boys too..

    SOUTH AFRICA: Kubusi Safaris

    I'm glad you had a good time there... and I was able to help you.... Maybe the cull hunt is why you only hunted those 2 properties... like I mentioned I only hunted Glen Boyd for half a day (for springbok, and we didn't see one) My PH took me to other farms and ranches for different species...

    Kubusi Safaris

    I hunted there last May, I did not use him myself (using Orion Taxidermy here in Moose Jaw). I know of people who have had work done there & were happy with the work. With the rules on getting stuff back in to Canada it may be worth it to really look into it.

    Death and Taxes - Trophy Fees & Canada Customs

    You're more than welcome to get a copy of my invoices Brick.. maybe mine went well since I had Kim deal with it all. What does suck is you will be paying the tax there & then again on the taxidermy work too... Mine was a package deal as well, so it might have been cheaper (if there had been...

    Transporting Ammunition from Calgary to JoBurg

    I used factory ammo, so it was in the original boxes, then in a locked shotgun shell case (was the perfect size fro 4 boxes of ammo). Then that was in my locked checked luggage. I had no problems with it. In Joburg they wanted it removed from the checked bag & checked by itself. Coming back...

    Oregon Ground Squirrels Hunt

    I love shooting gophers up here... I tend to use my .223 the most right now, then the HMR & then the .22. Haven't got much shooting in the last couple of years, as my main shooting fields have been shot up pretty good.

    Canada Border Services - What Gives?

    I didn't on mine.. but a broker handled all of my shipping... but with what I paid for shipping & clearing I wouldn't have noticed anyway... but does seem strange to me that GST is being collected on a service that was out side of the country.

    I know I tried to get in better shape before I left last May for my first trip, I did as much walking on the treadmill (with hill climbs) as I could, but due to plantar fasciitis in both feet it was a struggle, I did my best. The one comment about running shape over walking shape. If you can...

    7MM Rem Mag

    I used the accubonds in my .300WSM last year and they all preformed flawlessly. For a small game bullet you may want to look for a target style bullet... Don't know how many factory loadings there are for it. I would grab a box or 2 of factory loads in the heavier for caliber bullets in the...

    cost of scope vs cost of rifle

    my personal rule is 50% of rifle cost for scope, though I have a few scopes that are the same or more than the riffle cost, but that is usually on rimfires. My most expensive scope is my leuopold on my tikka T3, and that was about 60-70% of value.

    Camera for hunting?

    I took a Nikon Coolpix S9500 on my trip over my DSLR. With 22X zoom (500mm 35mm equiv) It also has full 1080p High def video. For a point & shoot it took great photos, and my PH & tracker could use it as well, as it was easy to focus & shoot.

    Odd hunt policy

    I don't like the last part of it either... there are many of us out there that are maybe not the best shot in the world, or just have some bad luck. On my first and only hunt to Africa I came close to that 3 X's and you out. I missed 2 kudu's & 2 springbok's before connecting on the third...
