Africa 5 times, USA - most western states including Alaska and Hawaii.
Beautiful buffaloes, beautiful rifles, perfect shot placement.

However, during the activity shown with about 53 seconds remaining, through about 57 seconds remaining ...... not one but TWO of the fellows trailing that PH, carried their presumably loaded rifles, pointed at the PH’s lower back.

Upon the video being edited, and noticing such cavalier disregard for my life, I’d have had words with those two.

I fully realize that rifles don’t just fire themselves nonetheless, reckless handling of power tools always gives me the hiccups.

Yip fully agree. Not very safe.

Being so close and action being imminent, better to carry that fully loaded double in both hands.

Not re-loading the fired barrel after the first shot and then walking up that close for the last shot is also a foolish thing to do no matter how big the stick is you are carrying...

Beautiful place to hunt and exceptional double rifles!

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
