Hello all,

I've lurked for a while and decided to sign up. I'm looking forward to learning, seeing other folks hunts and getting ideas for new adventures. My wife and I hunt Upland birds over our 3 setters throughout New England every fall and have hunted in Namibia, South Africa and Romania. I also love casting flies.

Yes, there are still hunters in Massachusetts!

Welcome to AH! Been on the turnpike across Mass from the west border to Boston, very pretty country. If you get a chance please share some of your hunting stories.

Welcome Atticus! Love to see some pictures and read a report of your Africa hunts!
I have an old GSP I've hunted behind for most of the upland birds out west...Huns, 2 types of sharptails, prairie chickens, bobwhites, scalies, pheasants, dusky grouse, ptarmigan, chukars, and probably some others my white hair can't recall right now. Hunting behind a dog is a grand sport whether you pull the trigger or not!

Atticus, glad you joined us. I too would enjoy reading about your previous hunts and seeing your trophies. What kind of rifle do you own? What caliber? Do you reload. Did your wife hunt in Africa as well?

Welcome to AH sir. I had every confidence that there would still be hunters in the land of the Red Socks!

Thanks for the warm welcome all. I'll try to post some photos of past trips when I get pix onto a new hosting site.

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

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
