    Questions About the CZ 550

    My CZ550 in 375 H&H is named Hennie, after the toughest, meanest and funniest PH I ever met is SA... My buff, plenty of African & Australian game have been taken and it’s my favourite rifle without question. Ado

    Taxidermy or next safari?

    No other storage options but I guess many have said don't sell as in years to come you will regret it. Not all my trophies are equal - perhaps I can sell some but keep just a few that are very special... like the buff. Ado

    Taxidermy or next safari?

    Ahhh the memories... but seems like selling is a better option so I can go back hunting again. Hi Sounds like you have it all sorted. We have been together for 13 years - a bit late now to try and lay down the law! Considering the quality of woman she is it's a small price for peace. Ado

    Taxidermy or next safari?

    I believe so... it looks like I could get between $15,000 and $20,000 AUD for the lot. Not often this sort of thing comes up in Australia for sale especially as a collection. That would buy a lot of safari! Ado

    Taxidermy or next safari?

    Hi All, I have two problems and wonder whether anyone else has faced the same issue, or has advice on what I should do next. 1. Too many trophies from my safaris, a wife who refuses to allow them in the house, and no space for them to be displayed. 2. Insufficient funds to allocate to going...

    KRUGER PARK, SOUTH AFRICA: Where Poachers Are Hunted As Much As Their Prey

    Drawing an equivalence between black people and rhinos to make an environmental point... disingenuous or downright evil. I have a rather crazy idea... don't break the law. The law is colour blind (or meant to be at any rate) but these twisted idiots conveniently ignore that point. If you gave...

    My greatest peeve is when the hunt finishes. You know you have to go home and start the dreaming / planning all again... On the walk Vs bakkie point, I believe we should make our own choices they way it's suits you and your mobility. A much more concerning issue / peeve for me is when...

    .458 Winchester vs. .458 Lott

    I avoided this predicament by simply buying both! I like the WM but I love the Lott. I am considering chambering the WM to a 300H&H for plains game... but as always money and wife means no progress!!! Either is great. Ado

    ZIMBABWE: Has Anyone Hunted With African Sky Safari's In Zimbabwe?

    I have hunted with African Sky Safaris four times in South Africa and they have been brilliant. Planning an elephant hunt in Namibia with them in 2018 and I have full confidence they will deliver as usual. It's all about the PH and concessions... no complaints thus far. Whoever you book enjoy...

    Bow hunting large animals - is it ethical?

    There is a lot of talk about bow setup, and that a bow cannot stop a charge. This thit like saying a 30-06 can kill an elephant, and rely on the PH to stop a charge? What am I missing? It sounds like a bow is worth a solid 200gr from a 30-06? Ado
