Hello ,
My name is Professor Anayeth Mawla . I am based in Bangladesh and a close friend of Major Poton Khan , whom I understand is a forum member here . I am a hunter , a former war time serviceman ( conscription based ) and an author . I teach Environmental Management to high school children , for a living . I have hunted in Bangladesh , Europe , Australia and the United States . I do dream on going on an African Safari on either 2022 or 2023 for a mixed bag hunt . My dream African game to bag include ( but are not limited to) a hippopotamus , blue wildebeest , gemsbok , klipspringer , forest duiker , spurwing geese , guinea fowl and crested francolin .

I own three arms ( till now , anyway ) , which I am extremely fond of :
* A .458 WM ( Winchester Magnum )
* A 12 bore
* A .22 LR ( Long Rifle )

Aside from hunting for the pot ( intertwined with recreation) , I have also taken the following dangerous game :
- 18 cheetah baagh leopards ( all marauders )
- A Royal Bengal tiger ( a marauder )
- An Asiatic elephant ( a rogue )
- Wild boar ( too many to count )
Nothing worth bragging about , but these experiences certainly were unforgettable to me .

I began hunting in 1972 and I have authored two books till now . One deals with our Bangladesh Liberation War and the negative effects of conscripting children into service . The other deals with hunting . Below is my book , which details my hunting experiences between 1972 and 1982 .
C71E50FD-CAD8-4F69-99D4-52B0B4ED6E5E.jpeg

It is titled “ Jokhon Shikari Chilam “ ( When I Hunted Dangerous Game ) and I initially tried to have it published it in 1994 . However , the book finally saw publication in 1999 . Recently , my close friends ( Including Major Poton Khan Sir ) have influenced me to have an English translation of the book published for international hunters . Hopefully , this should be out by January ( if not sooner ) .

I joined this forum mainly to learn from much more experienced hunters than myself . But also to share a few of my hunting stories , as well . Nothing too exciting . But maybe , they might interest some people .

Regards ,
Professor Anayet Mawla

PS : English is not my first language . So please pardon any grammatical errors . I will try to improve my fluency , over time .

Welcome! Some of us that English is our native tongue have grammar problems too, so don't let that bother you.

Welcome!! I'm shocked any friend of the majors would own a 458 WM !! Just kidding lol. Can't wait to hear some stories!!
Well ... It successfully laid low a brutish rogue bull elephant and a man eating royal Bengal tiger , RMC . I suppose that I would be unjustified in complaining about the .458 Winchester magnum caliber to our young professor .

Hello Professor Mawla,

Khomas Highland Hunting Safaris of Namibia, welcomes you to the greatest forum on earth.

From what I have read, the original / 1950’s vintage ammunition in the .458 Winchester Magnum, had some problems.
However, evidently when loaded with today’s modern ammunition, it has developed into an excellent cartridge for large, dangerous animals.

For a short time, I once owned a Heym double rifle, Model 88B, in .458 Winchester.
Unfortunately, did not get a chance to hunt with it because, I needed the money more than the rifle and had to sell it.

As others have already said, I too look forward to your hunting stories.
Thank you for joining.

Kind Regards,
Paul (Velo Dog)

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
