    Hello ,
    I have joined this online forum today . I was in fact introduced to this website by forum member ,@Major Khan who is my close friend , compatriot and former commanding officer during the Bangladesh War Of Independence in 1971 .
    Major khan very kindly narrated one of my hunting stories on AH ( African Hunting ) forums last week , which can be found here .
    https://www.africahunting.com/threads/in-pursuit-of-the-fabled-black-panther.55807/
    He also encouraged me to join this online forum .
    I am a passionate lover of the Majestic art of hunting ( or “ Shikar “ as it is called here , in Bangladesh ) .
    Although I certainly enjoy hunting ( and do hunt ) most species legally available for Shikar in Bangladesh , my No. 1 favorite mammalian species to hunt in my country would have to be the Axis Deer ( Known in Bangladesh , as the Chital ) . Among birds , my No. 1 favorite upland species to hunt , would have to be the green Harial pigeon and my No.1 favorite waterfowl species to hunt , would have to be greylag geese .
    My experience with dangerous game is limited to only 25 man eating Hunting Leopards and half a dozen Asian Sloth Bears , which I personally consider to be quite unremarkable .
    My dream is to hunt in South Africa next year with my grandchildren ( preferably Namibia ) . My dream African species to hunt for my first time to Africa , would have to be the following :
    * Cape Buffalo
    * Eland
    * Impala
    * Sable
    * Tiny Ten
    Bagging an elephant or an African lion are also quite desirable to me , somewhere down the line . However to me , my very first African dangerous game species MUST be a Cape Buffalo .

    My No. 1 favorite rifle calibre of all time is hands down , the 7 millimeter Remington Magnum .
    My No. 1 favorite shotgun maker of all time , is William Wellington Greener .
    My No. 1 favorite factory loaded ammunition , would have to be the Remington Core Lokt soft nose cartridges.
    MY No. 1 favorite bullets for hand loading , would have to be Barnes TSX soft nose bullets .
    Some of the calibres which I have used over the last 55 years for Shikar include , but are not limited to :
    * .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire
    * 7 millimeter Remington Magnum
    * .375 Holland and Holland Magnum
    * 12 Bore
    * .303 Military Ball ( for two legged quarry during war time only )

    I hope that I can learn a great deal from this group of passionate hunters from all over the world . I also hope to share a couple of my stories of pursuing man eating Hunting Leopards over the years .
    With very best wishes ,
    Panther Shooter

    Hi welcome aboard...... And I think only 25 man eating leopards and a few sloth bears is slightly more than a limited amount of DG hunting :D:D Beers:

    Thank you . It shall be my pleasure to me a member here . I have actually been reading all of the articles and threads on this forum for quite a while ( ever since Major Khan originally began posting his marvelous articles on AH Forums . ) . However , I finally decided to no longer be a spectator and to actually jump into the forum myself.

    Welcome to AH, I enjoyed the article that @Major Khan posted on your behalf so I will be watching for more. I like your choice of rifle caliber, I have hunted North American game with a 7MM Rem Mag for over 35 years and has yet to let me down, I also used it, along with my .375 H&H for plains game my first trip to Southern Africa.
