I watched Black Death and Use Enough Death and I learned a few things about different calibers, bullets and stopping power. As far as Mark Sullivan's ego, well I live in southern Alabama and we got some hunters down here with ego's as high as friggin Mt. Everest. I can live with that plus the man broke no laws which is more that I can say for the other hunters with big ego's. When Mark is gone we'll probably all realise that he wasn't such a bad guy after all. We can still learn something from him even if we don't like him. Just saying.

The problem with the guy is well known. You don't even have to have inside information to see and understand it. In Black Death, near the beginning of his "career", he purposefully walks up to a wounded buff on the ground to stimulate a charge- the camera was ready and all was set. Only ONE reason to do that! Many who make their living (or massage their egos) by peddling stories or videos (or earlier film) have similar mentalities- MS isn't the only one. IIRC back in the 50s, Donald Ker quit participating, out of disgust, in similar escapades.

There’s a right way to go about it and a wrong way to go about it. Sullivan definitely lives in the wrong camp, in my opinion. The question isn’t whether what he does is legal, but whether what he does is ethical (after all, there are plenty of laws which allow actions some would consider very much unethical, abortion being a classic example).

Mark Sullivan gives us all a bad name. Seriously, his productions are rocket fuel for those who would lobby to end hunting.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
