Greetings from the foothills of Boulder County!

Lifelong Colorado elk hunter, with experience hunting deer in Kansas and hogs in Texas.

I am a Research Engineer for a DoD contractor and a prior service active duty Army O3.

I am also a connoisseur of vintage firearms, with a moderate multinational collection of classic military/sporting pieces, and a strong appreciation of African hunting lore and equipment.

Depending on how things go, an African hunt could definitely be on my radar screen in the next decade or so, especially after my son gets some good elk experience under his belt.

[Edit to add that I joined last year, but did not get around to posting until today...]

Welcome on from CO.
Asking questions is the best way to get excited about going to Africa.

Welcome to AH from another (hate to admit this) Boulder County, CO member! I don’t know how old your son is, but my 12 year old granddaughter just got her hunters safety certificate and now she says she needs to go to Africa with me(y)! My next trip is suppose to be for lion, but I may have to change that!:eek:

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.
