    Pat Hemingway-- what became of him?

    I've written two articles for FE Journal print magazine as well. Haven't met Pat though. Seems like a cool guy. Good writer for sure.

    Argentina Cancellation Hunt 6 Species

    I hunted with this outfit a couple years ago. The story made it in Sporting Classics Magazine. They are a solid outfit. They treated me well and were more than fair with me. The highlights were a couple of boars with hounds, as well as a capybara, among other animals. I also met Danny Trejo on...

    Would you give up a 100 pounder if asked to?

    I don't travel to Africa to hunt elephant, or any species for that matter, for the purpose of appeasing someone else.... especially an absolutely unappeasable crowd. There isn't a single anti-hunter who would be ok with you shooting an 80 pound elephant because you turned down a 100 pounder.

    East Cape Hunting Package

    I am happy to report that I booked this hunt with @ljsafaris ... It is an interesting package with an opportunity to hunt behind hounds, which I love, and everyone I contacted had great things to say about Juan and Lauren and their outfit. Also, I've been trying to get my best friend to Africa...

    Hyena taxidermy ideas

    From my Zimbabwe trip in 2015 with @MARTIN PIETERS SAFARIS and @Dalton Tink . Done by Randy Gilmore in St. Louis, Missouri. I told him what I wanted, specifically with ears like that and the mouth at that angle.

    Hello from Bwana Moja. Africa is NOT "The Dark Continent"

    Some people will search far and wide to find something to be offended by. This is the culture we live in, and quite frankly, we don't need this $hit in the hunting community. I really couldn't care less what you think of me or anyone else using the term "dark continent." It isn't about race. No...

    North American big 5

    Cool thread. Hard to compare with African game. It's like the difference in fishing for bass in a lake or fishing the ocean with bait as big as the bass. NA Big Five (danger to hunter because of all involved in hunt) 1. Mountain goat (especially late season, probably most dangerous hunt due to...

    Debating whether I should step up to 375 H&H?

    I think for that particular bag your best bet is the 30-06...but you should definitely buy the .375 barrel because it is an awesome caliber.

    What really is "Big Game"?

    Great question. I bet everyone is different. I consider all ungulates big game, including dik-diks and tiny forest duikers. I also consider wild turkeys big game because of how they are hunted even though they technically fall under upland game.

    Buffalo or elephant?

    Have done one of each on the same hunt (bull buff, tuskless cow). Both were amazing hunts, but elephant wins in my book by far. Nothing like it.

    When does your kid start skinning?

    I don't think there is a correct answer. I will let my 11-year-old start when she wants and when her fine motor skills seem sufficient to not hurt herself. She has gotten some small game, turkeys, a cougar and a moose, but hasn't done anything with a knife quite yet. I want to edge the line...

    Alec Baldwin Movie Set Accident

    I do agree with insane as it seems to responsible gun owners and hunters, Baldwin will walk free other than probably a confidential settlement with the girl's family to avoid civil court that we won't hear about.

    Alec Baldwin Movie Set Accident

    Definitely crazy. The situation is so sad and serious, but it is ironic that this guy paints gun owners as idiots when the concept of firearm safety is simple and second nature to most gun owners, and especially hunters. Maybe a rule change can happen for the better. If I were king, I'd make...

    Alec Baldwin Movie Set Accident

    I see what you are saying, but the problem is right in your answer. As soon as someone else is responsible for another person shooting and killing someone, everyone starts pointing fingers and nothing is learned. Baldwin is 100% responsible for anything that comes out of the end of a gun while...

    Alec Baldwin Movie Set Accident

    I just have to comment....maybe something is wrong with me, but when I hear people talking about the armorer, and the "Hollywood gun safety rules," whose fingerprints are on the gun or bullets, etc, it kind of sits wrong with me. While I think those are valid questions, the person holding the...

    6.5 Creedmoor

    I do, however, agree with those who think there are more appropriate calibers for larger African plains game...despite it's potential lethality on elk-sized game. It just doesn't pack much of a punch.

    6.5 Creedmoor

    Haha true. Thanks. It is a Bergara HMR and has some plates that can be taken out to shorten the stock. I had a suppressor on it too which helps with recoil for her. Problem is that it is too heavy for her to carry and I had to pack around a tripod for her. It all worked in the end. Her and her...

    6.5 Creedmoor

    My 10-year-old daughter got a bull shiras moose with my 6.5cm this past weekend at 270 yards. Normally I wouldn't have used that for moose, but she is a small-framed kid and it worked. 143gr Hornady eld-x. Not ideal, but the gun fits her and doesn't punish her with recoil. The 6.5 caliber is a...

    Tuskless Elephants should be the target?

    Yes. Mankind has helped perpetuate the gene through poaching, so mankind should keep it in check through hunting. Also, tusks serve multiple purposes. It is a shitty gene to have in the gene pool. And they are fun to hunt.

    COVID vaccination required by Safari Company or not, your suggestion

    Travel problems going thru Doha and Dallas

    I did not not take guns with Qatar for this exact issue in March 2021 because they will not tell you if they will for sure take your rifle until you depart to Doha....meaning if you have a connection in the US they make you recheck it (as you detailed) and THEN say "yes" or "no" to your rifle...
