Hi everyone. As promised, another hunting clip (very much abbreviated) with Gar Rodside (jnr) the day before his 12th birthday. Not a bad opening to his first safari in Africa, or a first trophy. He used a .270 rifle. Enjoy :)

Here's the video:

That young man can provide some shooting lessons for a lot of us.

I am glad the fellow with the snow camo stayed behind for the stalk.
I wonder if he ever took any trophies in that get up?

Thanks for the video. It was great watching that young man shoot his first African animal and what a nice Kudu it was.

Thanks for all the positive comments everyone. I'm leaving on another safari in a couple of day's time. Will be sharing some more hunting clips with AH members as soon as I can.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
