Hello from Texas. Going on my first trip to SA in June. Really looking forward to it, but I have a lot to learn in a short time. Will be reading up as much as I can on this forum. I see a lot of good info here. Thanks in advance for all that you have and will provide.

Welcome aboard. Where will you be hunting? Who is your outfitter? What game will you be hunting? Rifle or bow?

Thank you all. I'll be hunting with Donovan Steynberg with Restless Africa Safaris. Recently met Donovan for dinner, and am more excited than ever. He is a true gentleman, honest, helpful, etc. We will be after plains game being this is the first trip over. I haven't made up my mind yet on the exact species though. I was going to take a .375 Ruger and a .300 Win Mag, but have decided just to use the guns in camp. This will be not only a hunting trip, but also a vacation for the family. Both my wife and in-laws are going, and we will be spending time at Victoria Falls and Dubai on the way back. I really would like to use my own guns, because I am more familiar with them, and I believe it would make a better story, but with the whole family going, I really do not want to take the chance of spending extra time in customs, missing flights, etc. I am currently looking for luggage for both my wife and me. I understand soft is the way to go, and no rollers, due to having to go in trucks and small planes over there. I've got my eye on the North Face duffel for the checked bag, and an Osprey backpack for the carry-on. I'm sure some of you have used these, and have reviews, or have opinions on what you would suggest we use. Thanks again for the welcomes. I can't get enough of this site.

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.
