Saw this group whilst searching the web for some good hunting stories.

Started by reading a Tanzanian hunting Report from Bluey and what a read it was.

Grew up in South Africa hunting with my dad and it's a bonding experience we enjoy to this day.

We are planning a buffalo hunt next year if God allows us both to still be alive and healthy.

Attached are some pictures of the Ballie and me on a previous hunt.

(Ps The ballie and his Gemsbok featured in Sa hunters magazine (a local hunting magazine.))

Corne de Villiers, welcome to the AH forum! A couple of fine trophies there! I havent taken a hartebeest yet, but it’s on my bucket list.
Looking forward to a report and more photos from your hunts.

Welcome aboard Corne. Hunting with Dads can become a tradition. I've hunted with my sons for over 40 years, now I am hunting with grandsons as well. For male "bonding time" hunting together can't be beat. I'm looking forward to seeing more reports of future hunting trips.

I'm at <pappas@mtaonline.net> Send me an email with your phone and I will call you about a skull I have. I went to school in Boston and am from Bernardston in the west part of the state. Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.

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).
