I very much enjoyed the story and am glad things worked out well for the hunter and all other involved parties. Truly lessons well learned and great follow up advice.
I must say that while reading the story I winced at the mention of the hunter having to fiddle and reduce the magnification on his scope. A similar incident long ago was my teacher. But I cringed when it was mentioned that low end optics were being used. Never a good idea and an especially poor idea when away from home territory on an international hunt.
All ended well with congratulations to the hunter and PH. A terrific story with great advice and a happy ending. It doesn't get much better than that.
Congratulations to both, no, all three of you; too often the tracker will be overlooked in the scheme of things. Now I know why I'm so happy to receive your regular updates. My hopes and plans still focus on two or three of the bigger spiral-horned animals: Kudu, Waterbuck, Sable, Eland. That would just about break the bank.
A couple of questions: A 9.3X64 (admittedly in a Ruger #1 currently being "built") should be more than adequate? 286 Woodleighs (or heaver)? scope 1.5-6, and bring a spare.... ?
Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
