Hello ladies and gents. Iv'e been lurking for a while and decided to join. It seems that there are some very nice people on here and I can learn a lot. I used to live in Africa as a kid..and now want to go back and hunt. I'm a newbie so please bear with me:).

Welcome. This is a fantastic site! You can really get some useful information and the "Daggs boys" on this site are really helpful with tips for successful hunts and information on African hunting.

Hey spike!..I have an Heym 88 PH on layway..it's in 450/400 and I should have it out in a few months. I'm looking for my first safari in two years and wanted to go classic with a double. So...hence the name. I know I could have bought less expensive and used that money for safari..but...I'm hard headed and right now have the opportunity to get a heym. So..I look forward to learning a lot from you guys on how to plan my first safari. When I was a kid...I lived in Ethiopia..saw a lot of stuff. Now ..retired...I want to go back while still in my fifties. Hope this makes since to you guys LOL :confused:

Now you need to get back to Africa and do some lurkingaround in the bushveld. Welcome.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

On the vx6 2-12 what does the zl2 stand for?

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
