I just found this site and love it. I will be leaving on May 1 for my first African trip. I will hunting with Thorndale Safaris out Port Elizibeth. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I'm sure it will be a lifetime experience.

Congratulations bwheasler, you are almost there. I have not been to the East Cape but I hear it is beautiful and that the game there is abundant. What are you hunting? Don't forget to give a report when you get back and let us know how things went. Jim

I'm heading to the East Cape on May 6, to hunt with Russ Field. So good luck bwheasler! I'm hoping to get a Kudu, bushbuck, impala, blesbuck, nyala, and red lechwe.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
