    So lets not give them footage of when things do not go as planned, simple...even a seasoned hunter would not approve..... If a lion chows you, that is part of the deal we all accept as hunters.....

    PETA is after a guy in CA - article mentions AH

    I take it most have not seen the actual video footage of this hunt. A disgrace for hunting as a whole, so much ammunition for the antis it is scary....how stupid, the hunter, videographer, outfitter and anybody else who was part of this hunt to allow this footage to be published on social media...

    168gr Accubond....LR.....2900 fps...not the right way to go..... Which ones do you intend hunting? What is a Cape mount? Just neck and head or shoulder mount?

    Best Caliber for Tiny 10?

    WOW! so anything within 200 yards can be shot in half, although most hunters prefer to do full mounts on these little guys....only one I would even consider at 350 yards which is an extreme shot is klipspringer, if the average hunter is even going to hit it at that distance is another...

    Best Caliber for Tiny 10?

    Depends on which one you are hunting at the time. As an example if you are slow stalking in a thick area known to have resident red duiker you will have a solid chambered rifle in hand ready to take the shot. If you are out hunting in more open area and a common duiker or stein buck is spotted...

    NO NO NO "pants on fire" YOU SAID You never mentioned use a 375..... And then said. Exactly recommending a bullet which does not exist, except in target format which is even a worse idea..... Stick to hunting an impala with head or neck shot for the meat....

    500 Jeff exceeds everything I have ever needed done unlike the 458 WM...get some practical field experience with a 500 Jeff on DG game and then get back to us.... Have you ever shot a 500 A Square with 600 gr bullets @ 2470 fps? Nope totally over board with horrendous recoil.... Your tea is...

    Best Caliber for Tiny 10?

    But you advise on what to use for Tiny ten trophy animals which are exclusively hunted for the trophy not the meat(although it is utilized as a by product of the hunt)....so why are you advising on something you clearly know nothing about? Stick to meat hunting if that is what you prefer.

    Best Caliber for Tiny 10?

    Everybody hunts the Tiny 10 for the trophy and not for the meat.... Who is he?? The one you do not know what part of the animal he brings back? Whatever caliber or bullet is used, the neck(any part of the neck is the last place to aim). Behind the shoulder, unless using a shotgun, that is all...

    Best Caliber for Tiny 10?

    You clearly have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to hunting the tiny ten. Why do some people have opinions, recommendations and are adamant about their opinions even if they are totally wrong? Have never hunted these animals, do not intend hunting these animals and clearly do...

    Loads for .458 Winchester Magnum

    450 gr from 404 Jeff or 416 Rigby can achieve that. 500 gr from 458 Lott can exceed that so can the 450 Rigby. 450 gr bullets are not the realm of the 458 bolt action calibers...

    Cape Buffalo solids or premium expanding...let me give a few example's where I was present or involved.

    Bullet for Cape Buffalo

    Wrong way to go about hunting Cape buffalo or dealing with the charge if it happens... Banging away at the rear end of a departing buffalo with solids is often where more issues arise, in particular when a second buffalo gets wounded in the process. Been there seen that on more than one...

    WOW!!! I did not realize that.... I have always yearned for a 410 3" shotgun just because....lost a deal on a name brand Spanish one recently.... Here however only practical caliber is 12ga or 20 ga although there are many 410 available... I passed up a 7x57R/16 ga Heym combo for my daughter...

    Strange what bullet where you using? Shot placement is also a factor....too far back can really rip up a Stein buck....very soft skin around the belly...duiker are more tough skinned in this area.....

    I bought my daughter a double combination today. Savage model 2400 12ga 2 3/4 -308 Win combination. It looks well built and apart from some dings on the stock(safe queen) seems un-fired. It also has two fully adjustable fittings for regulation(one up front for wind-age and one midway down...

    Convince Me I Am Wrong

    Many double rifles are built to accommodate scopes in the medium bores. It is not only about a scope it is rather the inability or incompetence to be able to handle a double rifle....although most shoot better with a scope.... Bolt or double scoped or not I ques if they cannot shoot they...

    Convince Me I Am Wrong

    What he said..... A scoped 450/400, 500/416 or 375 Flanged Magnum with QD mounts make a lot of sense if choosing a double..... Very few visiting hunters are competent with a double rifle and even less with open sights.....they simple do not prepare properly before the hunt..... It is often a...

    Bullet for Cape Buffalo

    Just to be clear, big difference between an insurance shot and a back up shot on wounded DG. After the first shot by all means keep shooting just make sure it is the same animal and if you have decided on using solids for back up on buffalo, be very careful of pulling the trigger unless you are...
