Hi there! My name is David I am 59 and work in the offshore industry.
I have just returned from my first trip to South Africa where I had a magnificent time on a dangerous/plains game trip.
Managed to take my first Cape Buffalo, an Impala, Blue Wildebeest, Waterbuck & a Warthog!
Fantastic time & can't wait to get back there!

Welcome to the best forum and congratulations on your first African adventure.
If you get a chance, perhaps you can post some photos for those of us who cannot afford to go for another year or two.

Welcome to the forum David good to hear you had a great time in our wonderful country.

Cape Buffalo can sure get addictive but I guess you know that by now.

Best Regards
Louis van Bergen

Welcome to the forum David! It surely is the best forum on the web.

Congratulations on your last hunt, and especially on that Buffalo you bagged.

All the best,

Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
