Have an open mind listen to your PH and if at all you dont feel comofrotable with the shot don't take it.
Buffalo happens fast in thick country and can go pear shaped very quickly.
Chat to your PH tell him what you can and cannot do you must both be comfortable and with each other and expectations.

Ken Moody has pulled out some great buff recently form pictures I have seen.
So the bulls are there and good that you have 10 days.

OH and don't admire your shot reload and shoot again if there is an opportunity.

Enjoy your hunt!!!

That Tacoma should last you a while longer and worst case you can likely sell it for almost as much as you paid with what used one's are bringing.
It’s a 2009. He’s at 265 600 miles right now.

The market is totally crazy.

Here is one of my practice session:

4 shots with the 375
That's a great shooting drill.

I love your city and my gunsmith is just east of you. A great area! Je suis desole mais je ne parle pas tres bien le francais.
I will watch for your hunting report though! Have a safe trip :)

Thanks for the advice. I think my PH will appreciate hunting with me. I have no problem creating good link with people.

One of the things that kicked my decision of doing it at 50 YO, is because I have an aortic valve stenosis and I will need a valve replacement in a few years. It's caused by a malformation of the valve itself.

I booked my hunt feeling good, but my last exam in march showed that the stenosis evolved a little in the last year and is approching severe condition. That will probably trigger the surgery in a few months/years. Right now my heart is working 25-30% more to push the blood from the left ventricle into the aorta than if I was normal.

My cardiologist doesn't felt worried about the hunt. She just told me to don't push to the extreme. I don't feel it in my everyday activities and I can walk the ass out of anybody. But even if I can still jog at a slow-moderate pace for 5-10 km, I realy feel I can't push it as I was able just 2-5-10 years ago.

That's a good drill! I do the same. I use 10x12" wood blocks (they are reactive when hit) from about 50 yds on in. Shoot farthest, then next, then next, then next. Then practice reloading while moving.
Good luck!
