    I currently have a CZ550 375H&H with a PG safari planned for 2019.
    My wife came to me today and said..."What's after Africa?"
    Africa will certainly be back on the list, but I'm looking for a little variety.
    So I have the one gun to hunt the world, and a wife willing to go with me to do so.

    Where would you take a 375 and what would you hunt?
    Please know I will steal any and all ideas and pass them off as my own to my bride.

    Russia does sound good.
    Will need to convince the bride that the bears and moose are bigger and badder than in AK.

    Can you clue me into what "Bongo" is please?

    Well, you can shoot two and it's nothing to see over 10 bears a day.... Every day. Just be careful not to slip on the moose Patty's.

    Like salmon? 1/3 Rd of the world's salmon come from there.

    Excellent, very good.
    I will inform the Department of Finance now, so as to lessen the blow when I bring it up again in a few years.
    Should go very well, yes...very well indeed.

    Did I mention that I may have bitten off more than I can chew with this thread?
    Keep it coming gents.

    BTW - BRICKBURN, I love the ivory tips on your Bongo, a real beauty.

    Great post. I think to justify the weight you lug around it would have to be somewhere where the animal poses a serious danger. I have taken mine moose hunting but the rifle bulkiness gets to me in that terrain after a while. Having said that, I think Alsaka, North BC are perfect places.

    I used the .375 when deer hunting the islands in Prince William Sound, Alaska. You never knew when you would bump into a brown bear. Hinchinbrook Island bears are particularly grumpy. I don’t know for certain that it is true, but I am told that problem bears used to be relocated to Hinchinbrook until they decided to just shoot them. Good story and the attitude of the bears there would certainly support it. Kind of a bear penal colony.

    The world is your oyster with a 375 H&H that you can shoot well, make your pick, you will be just fine with the King of the medium bores.

    Now there is an agreement!

    Everyone makes it, pretty much everyone can shoot it, you can get ammo world wide, with the propper bullet and shooter it will knock everything down close up and you don't get a hernia carrying it around.
