I accidentally found this site and decided to join since it looks like an interesting site. I've lived in Alaska for almost 45 years. I came here in early 1974 and did environmental studies during the construction of the Trans Alaska Pipeline. I've hunted moose, caribou, Dall sheep, mountain goats, and Sitka black tail deer, along with small game spruce grouse, ptarmigan, snowshoe hares, ducks and geese. I've never considered going to Africa to hunt although I do have a Remington Model 700 .375 H&H Safari grade rifle. I bought it after a bear swiped my moose but it has never been fired. I thought it would be fun to hear the stories of folks that have hunted Africa.

Thank all of you for your warm welcome. I've looked at some of the videos and other photos. I particularly liked the photo of the cougar sleeping in the tree, something I'm not likely to see here in Alaska. Not only would it be a bit to chilly but the mosquitoes would be having a picnic.

Hello longtimealaskan,

And, welcome to the greatest forum on earth.
What part of the Greatland do you live in ?
I’ve lived in Los Anchorage most of my adult life.
So, if you either live here in the big city as well or, if you ever visit the big city, please do look me up.

You can either PM me via the forum message feature or, my contact information is shown at the end of all my postings.
(If you’re using an I-Phone however, you have to turn it on it’s side for my regular contact info to pop up).

Best regards,
Paul.

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
