    Powders, primers, bullets,.....prices and lack there of....and what substitutes?

    It's the small rifle I was referring to. Large rifle and large rifle magnum can still be found pretty easily. Just gotta buy enough to justify the hazmat. :A Banana:

    Powders, primers, bullets,.....prices and lack there of....and what substitutes?

    There is definitely a shortage of some things and others seem to be ok. Try and find small rifle primers. :A Banana Sad: I buy most of my stuff online as I find I can get if cheaper in most cases. I love Powder Valley and

    LR shooting

    SAAM is awesome and I want to go back and do their "precision " (long range) class. I did their DG class before my first safari and it was worth every penny. I've never really shot long range but do plan on changing that here shortly. I just got a 6.5 Creedmoor for just that purpose. Will get...

    PETA is after a guy in CA - article mentions AH

    So what happens when they begin to attack your words, which they will. Do you scramble and try and hide those too? No hunt reports? Have old hunt reports removed? Try and get rid of all of the words you felt were reasoned and thoughtful because others now don't think they are? Terrorist attacks...

    Sight, sound or smell, which evokes African Safari the most?

    I agree. It's all of the above for me. I cant say that I have better memories of one over the other.

    Reactions instead of Likes

    Although I agree it's a possibility I dont think it will happen. The other place sure didn't need a mean face to be, well, mean. I suspect that we will continue to police ourselves as we always have and that dislikes will be used infrequently and in a civil manner (except for @PHOENIX PHIL , but...

    It's there - on the "New Posts" page it's on the right at the top - "mark forums read."

    And this thread is down 2, to 12. I like the addition of the up and down arrows and position changes. That's slick!

    By "logged out" I'm assuming you mean you're closing your browser and not truly logging out of AH each time you're done. When on the log in page there is an option right below your password that says "stay logged in" make sure it is checked. If not, you'll log out when browser shuts down.

    My very first dislike !!! I'm digging the new forum ! LOL Truly didn't realize we now had "like" options now. Pretty cool.

    Weird how some people seem to have that issue more than others....? I've had it happen but not in several years. How's the new forum working from your smartphone Kevin? :A Tease: :A Outta:

    AR-type Rifles

    Helpful. So for general purpose use there are a LOT of good options, including but not limited to, RR and DD. Pick an AR, any AR.... Caliber, barrel length, do dads, whatever.... Make it how you want. Another option if you're doing this partly for fun is to build your own. It's not that...

    AR-type Rifles

    What's the purpose? Saying you're in the market for an AR is only slightly less vague than saying you want opinions on which hunting rifle to buy?

    Issues with the Artistry of Wildlife

    Agree. And the badger was much bigger than mine! LOL It is also certainly reasonable for a simple cell phone picture to be taken as he's told you the work has already been completed. 30 seconds of time tops would stop some of this.

    The 2 hides have been returned to Dennis and the stuff that was found has been received by my new taxidermist (except my Hyena skull that Dennis said was found but didn't make the trip). So still lost is a set of bushbuck horns and various skulls. Getting closer.

    Is any kind of hearing protection used on safari?

    All up to you. I take my custom earplugs and use them when checking zero on rifle but not while actually hunting.

    There is another site that hasn't kept up with that times and it damn well shows! I'm not always a big fan of change either, but it is inevitable and needed. By the way, I love having "likes" in the private messages. Wantsd that for years! I also hope that the "sideways messages" posting of...

    Tailor Made Hunts With Takeri Game Reserve Zambia

    Takeri is a special place. Nancy and I enjoyed getting to see it last year and our only regret was that we didn't have more time. Mike was wonderful with Nancy and made sure she saw everything. My wife is NOT a hunter. But she enjoyed putting a stalk on a 44 inch sable. Well.... She did until...

    I did receive a response back from my e-mail to Dennis late last night. He confirmed his address so the hides that don't belong to me will be shipped out and returned. It sounds like all of my horns/hides are found (bushbuck is still a question - I sent him a pic to verify). He committed to...

    Well wishes for our friend Dennis from The Artistry of Wildlife

    I haven't seen any potshots here, although I may have missed or forgotten. I've seen legitimate questions and concerns that began before any health issues, along with rebuttals where some don't think the concerns are warranted. This is a good and fair point. @BRICKBURN - perhaps it's time to...
