Hi,
I reside in the North West Province of South Africa. We are a family of four who love the great outdoors. My 20 year old twin son and daughter share my passion for hunting. Although my wife does not hunt herself...yet, she adores the lifestyle. I hunt with a 30.06 and my kids use a 6.5 x 55 swede. Most of our hunting is in thick bushveld. Thanks for the add. Look forward to being a part of the community. Happy and safe hunting.
Cheers

Thank you for the welcome. Enjoy your Safari. Good luck. I am in a town called Zeerust. You most welcome for what is renowned to be an awesome cup of coffee, if it is convenient for you.

Welcome to this group. Please give a brief report of your last hunt. I need some hunting stories to tide me over until we go to Namibia in August! Thanks for joining. Your friend in Wisconsin, Brian

.45, welcome to a very enjoyable forum! I so enjoy hearing of a family hunting together.
Shootist43 will soon be on here admiring the fact you use the 6.5x55 Swede! :A Thumbs Up:

Welcome aboard .45. Your kids shoot my favorite rifle. The Swede became my go to rifle back in 1996 when it was only 100 years old. For accuracy, few are equal and none are any better. I reload for mine. Generally I use a 140 Gr. bullet but I have used 156 Gr. Norma Oryx and Woodleigh 160 Gr. The heavier bullets are used on animals larger than deer and or hogs. I've given each of my grandsons their own Swede.
