Hello,

My name is James. I am 37 and live in NJ. I am an avid outdoorsman. I am a licensed USCG Captain OUPV up to 50 tons offshore. My passion is offshore fishing. I run a 36 foot Albemarle Express with twin diesels for tuna, swordfish, shark and sometimes marlin. I got into hunting on my own, late in life, at age 31. Most of my hunting is coastal waterfowl in NJ. I run a 13' Duck Invader for that. My experience is mostly limited to waterfowl but I've done some wild boar hunting in the south.

My cousin, uncle, brother and I just booked a safari in South Africa for 2023. I am eager to learn a lot from this forum.

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.
