Hello all,

I’ve been stalking AH for quite some time now, and figured I’d better just join!

I’m from Alaska and primarily hunt moose, caribou, bear, and small game. I hunted Africa for the first time last year (PG in the Eastern Cape) and am hooked. I mostly hunt with a .338 Win. Mag., but recently purchased a Guide Gun in .375 Ruger (which I’d love to take with me on my next trip to Africa).

Welcome to AH sir. That guide gun will open up the world of DG hunting.
Hope you will share some pictures of your last hunt.

Welcome aboard Frog Morton. Now that you are shouldering a little more horsepower what is on the docket for your next hunt? I would be remiss if I didn't remind you that the story and photos from your first hunt are in order. There a number of Alaskan AH members, do you know any of them? Whereabouts in Alaska do you live?

Thanks, everyone, for the warm welcome! I don't have my next African hunt specifically planned out yet, but would like to go again next year or the year after, and hopefully add a buffalo, hippo, or a cat to the bag. I figured it'd be smart to get as much practice in with my new rifle as possible before then, though. I'm also planning on using it for moose and bear up here in Alaska (where that 20" barrel and light weight will definitely come in handy!).

I'll see what I can do about putting together a hunt report and some pictures!

I live near Wasilla, which is just a little ways north of Anchorage. As far as I'm aware, the only AH member I know is Mac Baren, who, coincidentally enough, also happens to be my brother. . . .

Welcome Frog Morton - have you considered Namibia for your next African adventure?

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).
