Welcome aboard TMac. On AH all hunting experiences and expertise are on a par. It is not the game per se but the hunt is what we share in common. African PG and American White Tails, Elk, Moose and Pronghorn behave similarly, and fall to appropriate sized rifles. For most of us, an African PG hunt costs the same as a guided Western hunt, but you are much more likely to bag your quarry. How about sharing some of your hunts' and photos with us? What caliber firearms do you own? Which is your favorite or go to rifle?
Thank you. Not much of a writer about my hunts, do have a few pictures scattered here and there. I may dig a few up if I have time. Much of my hunting is for meat, wild game is our red meat in my house. That said, I’ve managed to take a number of very good Mule Deer (mixed bag of 30”+ and 180+ for the best of them) and several Antelope that grace my wall. Taken a pile or two of elk (most cows for the table)... Have one big Cougar I stopped at about 3 feet, suppose there is a story there.
Most of my rifles are off a 308 case or 30-06 case, including both parents. Only magnums I own are handguns. My go to is generally at 25-06, 270 or 280. When I Moose hunted it was the 30-06 and it was fed 180 TTSX’s. Last few elk fell to the 270 with 130TTSX’s and a 280 with 175 partitions. If I had to pick a fav for what I have hunted to date, it’s one of my 280’s.
Shootist43, a pic of a pic of a mid 180’s mule deer. Man cave currently tore apart, so the mounts are in piles in the garage. Best I can do right now. He’s very tall & narrow, one small eye guard, and a good sized in-line and kicker. What I’d call a 5 x 5.
Welcome! Nice mule deer!
