Headed to Namibia with @Jaques Spamer next month and as with all hunting trips the anticipation is mounting.

At first I thought Covid and the testing requirements were going to be the toughest hurdle associated with the trip. However as the weeks have passed since booking, the airlines have changed or canceled my fights 3 times. Of course Jennifer with @TRAVEL EXPRESS has worked it out each and every time. I’m certain if anything else changes she’ll handle it as well.

A few years back I shared a story here of a missed opportunity in Botswana. I really thought that after that encounter I would never get another opportunity like it again. Below are a couple of pics from my missed opportunity. They may give you and idea of what I’m after.

Then you are heading to the caprivi. What concession are you hunting. I got back from there in mid October. Hunt report is filed. Good luck. Anything else on the plate besides jumbo?

Have you got room in your luggage for another hunter. I'll pay the excess baggage.

Of course it’s a non exportable tag. Memories are what I’m after.
Exactly my opinion since I have no space for much of anything! Oh Am I envious! I can’t wait for your report and pics!
Have a grand time!

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.
