    Good day all,

    I've been out of the hunting scene for a while. I hope to be able to read and learn, as my knowledge might be a little out of date.

    Wish you all the best, and as my fathers buddy from Alaska always said, shoot straight.

    Welcome aboard Drakensburger, hunting knowledge is never out of date. However at times the curator may be a little rusty. Do you have any hunts planned for the near future? What firearms do you own? do you reload?

    Busy planning a meat hunt later in the year.
    I've done nearly all my hunting with a 8x57, but age and thousands of shots caught up with the old rifle. I now have a 338 wm. Hope to get a 308 or 30-06 soon. Just something that is a little cheaper to feed.

    Have you thought of getting the 8x57 rebarreled? The action can also be trued up if necessary. It's not that I'm against buying new rifles, but that I have a thing for old rifles and prefer to keep them up and running as well. Obviously you were very comfortable with your 8x57.

    Welcome to AH Drakensburger! How about some pictures and a little write up when you go on your meat hunt? Sounds like a fun thing to do.
