Hello my name is Michael.
I have been living in British Columbia, Canada for the last 20 years. I was born and raised in the Yukon Territory where I lived for 30 years.
I am a graduate of the Colorado School of Trades Gunsmithing Program. I was a full time gunsmith for about 15 years.
I have hunted in the Yukon, B.C., Colorado and most recently South Africa.
Nice to meet everyone !

Welcome to AH.

Do you happen to have a hunting report you'd like to share from that trip to Africa?
Please share it when you get a chance.

A gun smith in the mix won't hurt at all.

Man that's a good question. It's been 20 years , but I have some good memories from nights at the Kopper King up on the highway. The 98 and the Capital were always crazy. But who knows now. Different times and crowds now I suppose.
Sorry James I can't be of much help.

Nelson. Is this message a PM format. I want to send you my email, but don't know if this is the cirrect way to do it. 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).
