    My late father worked for Caltex Pacific Indonesia and shot this tiger with a shotgun. I thought it might interest some readers

    Thank you flatwater bill. I plan to practice at a military range outside Jakarta next week using a wooden tripod and my Dad’s .375 which he got as a retirement present in the early 70’s. A real hassle just to get a permit to take it to the shooting range.

    I spend time in Australia and Indonesia. My brother and I go hunting for Sambar Deer in Gippsland regularly. Although it is not easy to get a firearms license in Australia, once you have it, it is so much more simple than Indonesia. It was easier before though. When I was a kid in Melbourne I remember shooting pest birds in my gradfather’s vegetable garden with tiny .22 ball cartridges.

    Other than that I engaged a private trainer to improve my strength and endurance. I am 67 but thank goodness don’t have any significant problems.

    I have also been reading books on buffalo hunting and looking at Youtube videos, some better than others.

    Marius from KMG tells me we will be hunting near a town called Alldays in Limpopo and it will be 30C (86F) with thick vegetation. We plan to visit waterholes and follow buffalo tracks from there.

    It will be a totally new experience for me.

    Best wishes,

    Sjakon

    Thanks, SJ............I was curious if you had access to a shooting range. It sounds as if you do.....with a little red tape involved. It will be nice to use your dad's 375. .....FW Bill

    Thank you. That was in 1972. No I think my mother gave it away. Our Dachshund kept chewing the claws and ears. It ended up looking quite disheveled.
