Adrian,
I did not enjoy this and we fight with USFWS and CITES every day to protect our hunters. I will share this with a few key people to hope a change will come in the near future. Thank you. Robert

I Agree Robert, so few people actually know! I was unaware till I read it the other day.

Well done to Jerome and the team.. a sterling effort amidst unpleasant threats and issues!!
I live in South Africa and have hunted my whole life and support EVERY effort that AH does to maintain our spirit and aims in this wonderful sport of ours.
I am available to take on these "antis" and keep our flags flying!!

Hi very new to the page so I hope you don't mind my views. I've always been a firm belive that negativity only ever breeds negativity however, after recently having a number of my photos, blogs and writings stolen and publicised in a big way, I found that for every one negative comment another ten positive ones were recived.
I would hope all the threats, negative comments etc are kept for future reference or even evidence should that situation arise.
I feel that potentially publishing these comments could be just showing the antis the attention they seek.
I am however always up for a laugh so would be happy to leave it to your discretion to post either snippets of antis making fools of themselves or anything you feel we really need to know.

I would absolutely start a thread on the hate mail and threats you and other administrators receive. I would keep track of all the email address but not show them in the tread, you don't want folks getting into email battles or worse having one of them with a fake account here sending treating messages and the antis doing something like "see what the hunters sent to me"

Jerome,

All threats of any nature should be sent to the FBI.

Other than that ignore them.

Regards,

Philip

Assumed so....

Iceland?

Are they branching out? Isn't it usually from Malaysia or some place in the east?

Yes they are branching out, Iceland is an emerging country for server safe haven... See:

Intesting Jerome. That is something I didn't know, although as I typed I seemed to recall something about Assange and Iceland.

Ironic how too much of a good thing is actually bad isn't it? We can't live without water, but drink too much and we die.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
