So sorry to hear!
I'm scheduled to hunt with NB next month and was so looking forward to meeting him based on our communications.
He had a style of writing that just let you feel his smile as you read his pros.
RIP

Hammerguy, from what I gather your hunt will still be great with the PH's he worked with you might never have met Neil but like you said you had a good feel from him from his writings.

Oh No! I have watched all of his videos on YouTube! Condolences to his family. He just responded to a comment I made on one of the YouTube videos maybe two weeks ago! What a sad bit of news.

Oh my God!! I was talking to him 2 days ago!! I just can't believe this has happened!! This tragedy has left me completely at a loss. My sincere condolences to Debbie, their children, family, and friends.

He sent me a gift of a skinning knife he had specially made for me. I only received it last week - and now he's gone!! I just can't believe this.

Debbie sms'd me last night saying Neil's funeral will be held on Friday for those wishing to live stream their attendance.

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.
