    Welcome sir, The buffalo in my avatar was shot in August of 2017 when I was almost 60 years old. No tree climbing necessary! Black death hunting is an incredible experience. Enjoy the planning stages and please feel free to ask any question. My advise above all is the right bullet!

    Welcome Huntdog.
    Love the pictures of your first hunt.

    You will find many members here more than willing to assist you in the spending of your hard earned $$ on a DG rifle.
    Start with reading the forums here about DG hunting and see what sound reasonable to you.
    Then you can start to judge what you want/need/can afford...etc.
    Another option is using one of the outfitters rifles.
    This has benefits and drawbacks as well, which you can read about here also.

    Good luck with your upcoming hunt.

    Thanks. I have about decided on a CZ 550 in .416rigby . I know there are other fine rifles/calibers,but there’s the whole nostalgia thing. I may look into AHR and get it customized. Hunt isn't until 2020 . Does anyone know how AHR works? Do you just buy a rifle and then send it to them?

    AHR works in two ways.
    Buy your own CZ and have him customize it or have him make one from scratch.

    I had a CZ before I knew about AHR, if it was the other the way around, I would have him make it from scratch.
    A bit less expensive to buy a CZ and have Wayne work it.
    However a full custom AHR is totally worth the money and less expensive than most full custom African rifles. (Rigby, Mauser...etc)

    Good luck with the rifle and the hunt.

    Welcome to AH, @Huntndog . Hunting over hounds is a very traditional way of hunting, down here in the Eastern Cape. Many PH's here use them for tracking. I get a little bit excited when I get to put my two terriers on a wounded animal.

    Take Care,
    Marius Goosen
