Hi guys,

I've been lurking on this forum every now and finally decided to join in the conversation.

I'm from Namibia, grew up mostly in South Africa in the Kalahari and have been hunting since I can remember. I probably fired rifles before I could ride a bike. Although I have not hunted DG myself, I have hunted in almost all Southern African areas, in varies conditions and hunted most available game in our country.
 
Welcome to AH Hennie! Looking forward to your contribution.
 
Hennie, glad to have you here! Looking forward to your input.
 
Welcome to the posting side.
 
Welcome aboard Hennie. What caliber rifles do you own? Do you have any near term hunts planned? If so, for what?

Hello from Minnesota USA
 
Welcome to AH sir.
 
Welcome aboard, Hennie.

Whereabouts in Namibia do you come from?

Hi, I was born in Windhoek but reside in Swakopmund at the moment.

I resided most of my life in South Africa though and only relocated back to Namibia 3 years ago, I let go of all of my rifles in South Africa (It's such a pain importing rifles from SA to Namibia).

I had a .223 Brno and 2 x .308's with Musgrave actions; one with a Krieger barrel and the other with a Madco barrel.

Then you have heard correct :) Namibia is indeed a great destination. We are unfortunately hit by quite a drought at the moment.

As I relinquished my rifles back in SA, I have basically hit the reset button on my hunting gear. I am in the market for a good .375 H&H. Preferably a Winchester Model 70, but the search has only started a little while back.

I have only 1 x hunt planned for June, back in SA in Limpopo province, near Thabazimbi. This will be for a few Blue Wildebeest of which the meat will be donated to my favorite charity in South Africa.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?
Thanks,
Gary (Just down the road in Springfield)

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
