    Before and after

    Some before and after pictures of a deers life ending on a high note. Myself and the dog did not participate in the ingredients of the finished product other then eating this smoked culinary delight. Cold smoked and 6 weeks of hanging and turning into a most righteous stick of animal heaven...

    Woke is marxism evolved to take on the West

    WTNR, most people, on this forum would disagree with your ideology, that will not change regardless of how you present your point of view. So obviously you joined this forum for the same reasons that most of us have. I read your response regarding “ your credentials “ as we are all hunters and...

    Meat is important in the human diet

    I felt like the picture of health after consuming this culinary delight, bone marrow butter takes it to the next level.

    Vegemite the story

    Made ham salad last weekend, country ham, pickles, onions, garlic, celery through the grinder , mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper. A most righteousness spread. My wife very much enjoyed it.

    Cooking a steak well done is a mental disorder, if you like to eat a steak this way you should seek professional help, there are probably many other things wrong with your life.

    Vegemite the story

    I had a similar tasting product in Namibia, “Beefy Bovaril” a salty brown paste that was put on toast. A non-vegetarian version of this Australian wonder spread. Being made from animal parts had an appeal. Without the shedding of blood there is no proper meal.

    I Finally Joined The 505 Club

    Welcome, my last trip to Zimbabwe I used 525 DGX on Buffalo and had the beast drop with the first shot. I leaned to far forward and also shed some blood. A marvelous day. ,

    Favorite game to eat on your safari

    I’ve never had a bad meal in Africa (except buffalo stomach). Which I was advised not to try. Zebra and any antelope is always good eating. But Eland is the finest meat I have ever tried, seasoned and rare it is fantastic. This June I will be hunting in RSA at Kwalata with @Doug3006 he has...

    ZIMBABWE: March 2023 Amadundamela Forest Reserve Management Elephant Bull Hunt With CMS Safaris

    An amazing hunt and a well written account. Very much enjoyed the tale and felt as if I was there with your writing style. I had the pleasure of hunting buffalo and plains game with Allan in the Zambezi valley in 2021.

    L.O.P & Positioning?

    Myself and @Doug3006 were at the range practicing for our upcoming trip to RSA in June. We had a friend join us who wanted to sight in a red dot he had recently mounted on his turkey gun. He was trying to pattern his shotgun shooting 3.5 12 gauge turkey loads. We had heard about twenty shots...

    Kudu Bull Over 60 Inches Pictures

    That is so absolutely untrue. Everyone knows that sometimes older Kudu are propped up with sticks and that sometimes it looks like they have been dead a few days. All the 60”+ Kudus ( one so far) that I have found were that way.

    Haven't A Clue What Header To Put....but This Is Not Correct

    Every once in a while it’s important to turn some people into pillars of salt, this has worked in the past. “Professing to be wise they became fools”. Our world is not doomed, things can often seem dark if our faith is based on the deeds of men. I find great humor in the liberal ideology which...

    GoldGhost, it’s hard to sell an item on AH as a new member. I see where this gun was purchased on February 18th from Orange coast auctions. Do you have any pictures other then the auction photos. Welcome to AH and good luck with your sale.

    Crazy Auction Prices

    I ran into this phenomenon several times at live gun auctions. Rather then trying to find a good and fair price on what is available, the auction becomes a competition. I can appreciate this if the auction is a fund raiser for a good cause, however this was not the case when I saw people pay...

    Loose knee replacement

    My wife had a knee replacement 10 years ago, her surgeon recommended a cementless procedure, although it would take longer to heal the implant would be less likely to have long term problems such as slipping. I’m sure procedures have changed greatly since then but this has worked well for my spouse.

    UFOs are actually attracted to aluminum so are tornados, crowed trailer parks with piles of beer cans seem to pull these objects of terror right out of the sky.

    Do I need a 7mm Mag

    If you don’t have a 7mm then yes you do need one. You got rid of a lot of guns, I find this disturbing. I understand trying to ”simplify things“ or “trade up”, actually I don’t understand this. I look at guns like children, more is better. I have bought plenty of used guns and appreciate that...

    .22 magnum on bigger varmints

    I will be bringing a 22WMR along with my 375 this June to Africa, I have a 204 Ruger which is a good varmit gun but turns small creatures to a red mist. I shot a Javelina with it a few years ago and the offside exploded, I used a 223 that belonged to @Doug3006 and had a Javelina I could mount...

    Pre Safari Physical Training P.T.

    60 degrees today in eastern Missouri, did a 4 mile hike. Time to start getting back in shape and loose a few pounds, back to Africa in June. Cutting down on the carbs as this picture shows, no potatoes.

    in the 60’s when the the mosquito spraying truck slowing traveled down the road all us kids would ride our bikes in the DDT fog. When you skinned your knee you rubbed dirt in it to make it stop bleeding. If I cried about anything my father would remove his belt and “give me something to cry...

    It was a several day journey to our location, the first stop was a BBQ place in Tyler Texas, “texas best smoke house” Doug and I each had the Dino rib, good food but was in a gas station. Good impala hunting Africa would return the same results as good BBQ in Texas, too much information.

    Americans Not Taking Paid Vacations

    Who is this “we“ that sit playing on their phones, if you can’t put in a good week of work then that speaks volumes of your work ethic. If you can‘t show loyalty to your employer then leave. This entitled lazy attitude that seems more pervasive in the work place is not something to be...

    Having them mounted in this position allows them to be move like furniture when your wife wants to rearrange things. Santa hat is optional.

    I know that the younger generation drinking less is a good and positive thing, maybe it’s financial after paying for heavily inked and pierced skin there can’t be a lot of money left. $7.00 lattes don’t grow on trees and an Iphone 13 is more then I paid for my first three cars combined. Now...

    So what comes to mind is Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder. One must always keep in mind is that alcohol should work for you and not against you, I call it drinking for success. A recent run from the Fitzgerald still.

    Brass Needed

    I have around 60 rounds of once fired brass, they are yours if still needed. Yesterday I received 505Gibbs bullets from a member who no longer needed them. I will return the favor and send them if needed. The same price I was charged free.

    Prayers for Mark

    Mark and Scott, prayers for you both. As we age the penalty of years lived becomes more apparent. None of us escape the deterioration of time. We are not promised a life of ease but in fact the opposite. God walks with us all the years of our lives and reminds us that the best is yet to come...
