    Simple Camp Set-Up

    For an over nighter or two, just pack with sleeping bag, water, muesli bars & chocolate, maybe a freeze dried meal, bivy bag if it’s raining ! I’m out bush in the NT right now, I don’t think you need any sleeping bags at the moment ? Got the hunter a nice big Buff Bull yesterday, saw a lot of...

    For Sale CZ 550 458 Win Mag

    May also feed better as .458Lott, I love all my .458Win Mags & never had a problem with the ZKK 602 I have used but I hear the long case feeds better in that long action ? I have put a ZKK 602 .458Win barrel on a ZKK 600 action & it fits much better, even feeds a few from the 30/06 mag but I...

    Trophy Hunting Pictures JKO HUNTING SAFARIS - 2023

    Thank you for posting some great photos of awesome animals, could you say how long that Impala was please & is that a Red Flanked Duiker ? When I was in Kenya I saw a few Impala I believed looked that size, I was thinking 34-36in but haven't seen any hunters that have shot any that long, could...

    What Have You Killed with Your .308 Winchester?

    New Zealand also fought most of those Wars along side Australians & Americans, many of my Fathers friends fought (I think he was a little young) in Vietnam, my buddies Dad fought in Korea & another's in the Malayan Emergency, not sure if the USA fought in that one ? Sorry going off topic !

    Single Shot 500 Nitro Express

    @TMac is that the Rifled Barrel model, if so I have one to & yes for sure is a bit light for heavier loads ? I had some very nice Ball loads for mine many years back & you sure knew when it went off ! I think that is a very good price & they are under rated as a killing machine, with the right...

    What Have You Killed with Your .308 Winchester?

    This is a little like asking "what have you killed with your .22LR" as most people have had experience with the .308Win & if using any where near the right Bullets for game being shot it will work nicely ! I'm a 30/06 & bigger guy but have shot many hundreds of Deer, Pig, Goats, Horses, Donkeys...

    Crocodile takes another fisherman

    This is one of the guys that lived next to our camp in the NT, we crossed this Billabong most days in a Dingy half his size, he had one eye shot out by a fill in guide using a .375H&H which made him invisible for a well, much later he took one of the indigenous Rangers & was shot some more but...

    Hunting In Africa With The Remington Model 8 rifle

    One was on my list also, in .35 Rem but after the Big Shoot Up we lost all our semi auto center fire rifles, the worse of it was handing in the ones we had, knowing they are going to be crushed, I lost heaps but the .401 1910 Win was plain sad !

    If this is lion hunting…. You can have it

    @Rare Breed, that sounds like a much better idea, are you also sure on the 3 Months bud, a big lion will eat a lot of game in that time, couple of Sable or Roan & its off the scale ? I looked hard at one of these hunts I could live with & managed Lions was the closest but still out of my...

    Using a Southern Impala Cape on a East African Impala

    What are the thoughts on using a Southern Impala Head Skin/Cape on a Old set of East African Impala horns ?

    Purchase .303 / shotgun ammo in Botswana and/or South Africa as a tourist

    No bud, I believe there will be no way for you as a Foreigner to buy ammunition in SA, Botos is also hard or impossible for you to. A licensed South African resident has to show the license of the firearm in the caliber of which that is in his name, each firearm has its own plastic license in...

    Purchase .303 / shotgun ammo in Botswana and/or South Africa as a tourist

    I'm sure your plan will not work bud, in SA you can only buy ammunition for a firearm/caliber that is licensed to you & show it when buying that ammunition, it is not a easy thing for a foreigner to do.

    500 Nitro Express Pistol

    You would think so, my hottest loads in 45/70 made it feel like a grenade had gone off in you hand & a little numb & tingling !! Not to mention barrel lift ! That .600NE is crazy but in a lot more heavy frame with added strength. Emm it is way loaded down to, my 45/70 was worse than that & if...

    I have only assisted on the one Lion hunt & it charged after being wounded (grazed) with a Cross Bow bolt, my guiding partner shot it in the head with his .416 Rigby (I later asked why the head thus wrecking the Skull he said F#@K him !) before the hunt when talking to the guys they said expect...

    Well Bob that is sort of True but aimed mainly at Dingos or Dingo X Feral Dog, or Dingo but they want to get away with culling them & say crosses ! Dingos in Australia are a bit like Coyotes, some times taking out bigger animals then Coyotes I think & some of my hunters have said the Dingos are...
