Hello! Ive been reading on here for several weeks now and have decided to finally join. I have lived in Alaska for the last several years where my hunting rifle has been a 45-70, taking deer, caribou, moose and grizzly bear. However, my family and I are planning on moving to Botswana toward the end of this year, and I am soaking up all I can, knowing that I have to make some big changes. I look forward to all of the advice and new friends.

I just returned from a month over there. I am a horseback outfitter, and am working with an established lodge in Ghanzi to start a new outfitting business there for the Kalahari. I am not a ph, of course, but will want to do my own personal hunting as opportunity arises.

Welcome!!!

What a couple of places to live... I'd love to move to Alaska, or someplace in Africa. I'm fine with either... :)

G’day Geoff,
Mate, I noticed you purchased a rifle from overseas.... can you tell me the procedure of importing a rifle to Australia from a private seller?
Cheers
AGNK
I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

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
