Welcome to AH! Most elk hunts, even on public land will cost north of $2500 DIY. African hunt probably $7000+ for a good safari and multiple animals. Taxidermy definitely adds up more $$$!

Welcome aboard from east Texas. What part of Arkansas do you hail from?

Also, have you hunted black bear in Arkansas? My .405 double is itching to take one.

Welcome aboard from east Texas. What part of Arkansas do you hail from?

I started out in Montgomery county, lived in Little Rock for about 8 years, and now reside in Bentonville.

I have hunted them, and seen several, but have never seen one with a gun in my hands. With the quota, and private land baiting, season is usually over almost before it begins in the areas of the state with good bear density. I would have to get really lucky hunting public land to get a shot, though there is sign everywhere.

My poor man's "big bore" Marlin 45-70 is also waiting for its chance. I was very close to one a couple years ago in the Winona WMA. Every trip to the woods revealed new sign, and I mostly ignored the deer, trying instead to get him figured out. One warm misty day I found lots of large rocks had been rolled over in a small wash, and the ground was still dry where the rocks had been moved from. A little earlier, or a quieter approach, would have at least yielded a sighting. It was an exciting chase. One I hope I get to repeat.

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.

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.
