Welcome aboard. What caliber rifles do you own? Plains Game hunting in Africa is a "hoot." Nothing like it in the States. Have you already booked your hunt with an outfitter? What animals are you planning on taking?

As far as calibers, I have most of the usual suspects: .223, 7x57, 308, 30-06, 300WBY, 375, and a 416 Remington. But I've done most of my hunting with 22-250, 300WBY, and a 12 gauge . I have booked a plains game hunt with Karoo Wild Safaris for next April (my 30th wedding anniversary) and hope to take kudu, nyala, eland, bushbuck, impala, gemsbok, warthog, and zebra.

From another centennial stater, welcome. Congrats on your upcoming hunt to Africa.
Took my wife on first safari last year, also around our anniversary. Even thou she hunts with a camera, she had the " best vacation of her life"
She now understands my addiction much better, and Africa is not a one time deal for many. Enjoy all the great information on this site.Tight lines sir.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

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.
