    Going to SA to hunt? Be prepared for power blackouts

    I was in Limpopo SA in March this year, load shedding 3/4 times a day, but the Outfitter was set up with a good generator system so no major inconvenience. I would advise to ask your particular Outfitter their current situation if you're heading over soon.

    Which scope for a Model 70 in 416 Remington?

    Trijicon Accupoint 1x4x28 or 1x6x28. Run it on 1 and turn it up for distance shots.....use it professionally every day and trust my life to Trijicon Optics.

    Taking bullets (not ammunition) to Professional Hunter

    You should have no issues, I take brass and bullets to my Outfitter and PH each trip in my checked bag. The only thing you need to worry about is the bag weight.

    Toughest Scope: Trijicon? Leopold? Others?

    I am a SWAT Team Leader and have used Trijicon more years than I care to share at work, active duty down range and on most of my hunting rigs…. I bet my life on them. They’re bomb proof and I’ve never had a POI shift. Just my .02

    Courteney boots are about done

    I've got two pairs of Courteney's, one from 1999 and another from 2018. First pair look as good as the second and both are in good shape....I use leather conditioner and bees wax to keep them in proper order. Also, about to invest in my third pair, just because.

    My second rifle choice

    It is subjective as to what some folks call quality.....pocketbook dictates most. If you have unlimited money then the big three you mentioned, but if you're a blue collar guy and may be limited in funds go for Leupold, Bushnell Elites, Nikon or the like. I'm a big fan of Trijicon and Vortex...

    Anyone use the .270 Winchester?

    I’ve taken whitetail, mulies, pronghorn and various exotics with a Winchester 70 270 130gn out to 600 yards. It’s an excellent round for medium sized game in my opinion. It’s flat shooting and easy recoil. I’m a 30-06 man but the 270 will get it done.

    My second rifle choice

    A Winchester Model 70 Featherweight CRF is a perfect firearm to carry and shoot. Top it with quality glass and it’ll last a lifetime.

    In memoriam - Riaan Naude, Murdered

    Also just saw this on MSN. Sad sign of the times, the article that I read stated that only a pistol was taken. Based on that I would speculate that robbery was not the motive. Condolences to the family.

    What do PH’s like to see for sights on Dangerous Game

    With the Trijicon RMR, how are you accessing the battery compartment? Don't you have to totally remove it and lose zero to change the battery? I use a RMR and MRO every day at work. Yes, you have to remove it to change the battery (we change annually but they normally last up to two years with...

    Wounded animal?

    I guide on several ranches and the written rule for all of them is if you draw blood and the animal isn’t recovered you pay for it. Had a situation a couple of years ago where a client shot the left main beam off of a 150 class Whitetail just above brow time. Ranch owner said no harm and client...
