Good morning

I am of Rhodesian extraction now living in Cornwall UK

I'm very privileged to work periodically at a private hunting reserve in Mozambique

Amongst other calibres I'm the proud owner of two rifles built for me based upon Mauser 98 actions - one in 9.3 x 62 the other in 404 Jeff

Hello Bowjijohn,
Welcome to AH. I still live in Zimbabwe, have a Ruger No1 in 375 H&H, a Verney Carron O/U double in 385 Flanged and a Marlin in 30-30. Zim is like heaven, 3 to 4 hunts a year. All good.

Welcome aboard Bowjijohn. I like, and maybe even envy your part-time gig, but I like your rifles even better. You are a lucky man my friend. How about some stories and photos of your previous hunts? Do you have both rifles in England?

Both are in the UK and both permitted for use here for deer hunting (it is called stalking here).

getting ‘permission for use’ is a big deal in the UK as every firearm purchase and every calibre must be approved by the police.

the 9.3 is used for shooting for the pot the 404 (a recent addition) is yet to be used but will serve as a DG rifle and as a ‘modest’ charge stopper when running conservation and anti poaching courses in Moz

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.

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.
