Watts48, welcome to the AH forum! In the past, I’ve spent a number of winters on the Gulf of Florida kayak fishing. Great times! I still plan to return once this ”epizoodic” virus is controlled. Enjoy the site!

Welcome to AH watts48, I used to shoot a Pistol Match in Tampa back in the 90(s.) It was called the Mid Winter Nationals and held on the Tampa Police Range. The wife and I looked forward to it. Please tell us a little more about yourself as a hunter, things like what have you hunted in the past, what kind and caliber rifles you own, do you reload. Are you thinking of hunting Africa any time soon?

We all started somewhere. Have you looked into hog hunting in Fla. with your AR? I've never hunted with that caliber but others have. I suspect one of the heavier bullets would perform better.

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.
