Just thought I'd let everyone know that I'm going in for small bowel surgery tomorrow morning. I had a similar surgery back in 2006 for Crohn's disease, and now I have scar tissue built up in the area where my previous surgery took place. This is causing me to have intestinal blockages. So, they will have to go in and take out the scarred section, and put it all back together. I will be in the hospital an estimated 4-7 days.
So, I'd appreciate a few prayers and good vibes sent my way if you don't mind. It will be a long uphill climb to complete recovery, but I've done it before and hope to do it again!

Thanks!
Good luck Toby! Hope all goes well!

On the bright side, the last time I had this surgery, I had it in December 2006, and was hunting brown bear the following fall 2007. So I'm hoping I'll be able to go back to Africa this year if travel bans allow.
Good luck Toby, hopefully there will be many hunts to come.
Perhaps you can write up a bear hunt if you feel up to it in recovery.

Im sure you are in dreamland by now. Sorry I missed this yesterday or I would have given you a call.
#1 son, you are in my heart and thoughts on this serious day. Keep positive and this soon will only be a dwindling memory.

Oh this will be a perfect opportunity for you to spend time writing more music! Maybe even a short story? I do enjoy your music and reports on AH!

Toby, my thoughts and prayers go with you. Out of curiosity though, what gun catalogues and or inventory lists did you take to the hospital for perusal?

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
