Hi
I have hunted since I was ten years old starting with catapults and air rifle before going onto shotguns and rifles. I worked as a professional gamekeeper and stalker for ten years, served as a soldier in the British Army and now teach gamekeeping with wildlife management at a local college. I stalk deer regularly and control foxes along with rough shooting during the shooting season.
I have always been interested in African game since reading Ruark and Hemingway as a youngster and hope to go to Africa one day on a cull hunt. I enjoy using open sights now and again usually with a Swiss K31 straight pull in 7.5x55mm and shot my first roe buck of this season.
I look forward to reading and digesting as much info as I can, I have been impressed by Peter Dafners videos on You Tube.
Best regards
Garry

Hello Gary,

And, welcome to the best forum.
If you get the chance, do read the excellent book; "Hunter" by your fellow Scotsman, J.A. Hunter.
But be warned that, it will drive the needle of African addiction deeper into your soul.
Likewise, it might inspire you to sell your house and buy both a Magnum Mauser in .416 Rigby, as well as a .500 Nitro double with ejectors.

Seriously though, Welcome to AH.

Cheers,
Velo Dog.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
