    If you’ve ever been to Rhinoster Hoek you have no doubt Warrens feeling about jackals. Spawn of Satan comes to mind.

    Dangerous snake defense

    I second that! Dang cottonmouths scare the crap out of me. Struck twice while hunting the Mississippi Delta, fortunately had on snake boots.

    .416 Ruger For Sale

    Charlie not my business but i wouldn’t want to part with a rifle you have that Much history with. Of course if it was a left hand I would be urging you to sell it!

    Wouldn’t disagree with that, experience is huge. Last I read, less than half of their tanks were not mission capable. If the tanks won’t run then experienced crews would be novice infantry?

    Russell or Courteney - Safari Boots...

    The PH guiding my friend wore a pair of Rogue Trans Africa. He swore by them so I ordered a pair from a place (sorry would have to look it up). I have to say I like them as well as anything I’ve worn. Well enough I ordered their light hikers to try them out. Both boots comfortable and quiet...

    Budget Scopes - Sightron?

    I’ve got a Sightron (s2 maybe) thats mounted on a TC muzzleloader. It’s very clear, holds zero and the adjustments are accurate. That’s my only experience with them. I’d say go with it. He can always upgrade later if he wants.

    I’ve been struck twice by cottonmouths during early bow season in the Mississippi Delta. Fortunately my snake boots protected me. Scared the living crap out of me (no pun intended). But it hasn’t left me with any love for them. Which has evolved to see the snake kill the snake. Not a benevolent...

    Darn you guys

    Think I’ll stick with 9mm and 45ACP in handguns. Shot a 500 sw in 4” version a few years ago and didn’t find it enjoyable

    Darn you guys

    I like the looks of that rifle! And they make it in left hand which is good for me. I’m just partial to the Ruger no. 1 and couldn’t resist when I saw that one on gun broker.

    Darn you guys

    I blame all the AH members for this lol. My new (used) Ruger 1-H in 375 H&H. Alaska Arms QD rings with a Meopta 1x6x24 scope. I figured if I bought it I would have to return to Africa and use it. Apparently one trip is all it takes lol. I plan on using it this fall to whack a deer or two. My...

    New Zealand Council Plans To Ban All Pet Cats In Bid To Protect Native Bird Species

    Thinking of getting a new "truck gun"

    My truck gun is an AR15 pistol in 300 blackout kept in a tennis racket bag. Slung over passenger seat rest behind seat half zipped for access. Sadly we have a lot of dangerous critters on two legs. 4 murders in 3 days in a town of less than 45k. Previous truck guns have been a Ruger 10-22 and...

    Shooting accuracy

    You didn’t mention your trigger but that can make a huge difference in shooting. A good trigger with a crisp 3 pound pull can sure improve your shooting. You’ve had lots of good advice here already. I shot a 180 grain Barnes ttsx in my 3006. Sight in 2 inches high and that’s dead on at 200. 8...

    Emirates and alcohol

    You go to another country you play by their rules. If you don’t want to then stay home. And anywhere you are getting aggressive with law enforcement is a poor strategy. She broke their law and had an out of just going home and didn’t take it.

    How many animals?

    I agree with Hogpatrol. I’ve only been to Africa once but it’s been on my mind every day. Like everyone my eyes are bigger than my stomach....or wallet. I’ve decided on two must haves for the next trip, possibly a third and culls to round out if possible. On my trip I didn’t get everything I...

    It’s just a neat place. Warren and Belinda are awful nice folks and made us feel right at home. The food was excellent! And seeing those first kudu I was thinking “dang I’m really hunting in Africa” lol. Seems like once is all it takes to get you hooked.

    SOUTH AFRICA: First African Hunting Trip With Rhinoster Hoek

    Seemed like the time to go would never get here and then boom it was right there. My buddy Mark and I flew out of Little Rock to Atlanta with Delta and then on to Johannesburg on May the 6th getting there at 5 pm local time that Monday. Thanks to all the folks on here posting their stories, we...
