    Welcome to AH The Grey Rider. Sounds like your hunting "Dance card" is filled up for a couple of years. What is on the menu for your planned New Zealand and African hunts? What rifles do you own and or hunt with other than your favorite 7 MM Mag?

    New Zealand- stag, tahr, chamois

    RSA- kudu, zebra, sable, Blue wildebeest - usual PG hunt

    Guns owned - nothing special.

    Best trip ever- solo week-long canoeing the White Cliffs area of the Missouri River Breaks, Montana. Followup trip to rifle mule deer hunt. Can’t wait to return. Lewis and Clark were true explorers.

    Favorite book- The Lord of the Flies by Sir William Golding.

    Current reads - East of Eden by John Steinbeck and A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leupold.

    Another great read - The Long Walk by Slavomir Rawicz

    Most respected modern explorer- Ed Stafford, read “Walking the Amazon” - the guy has a pair, made of titanium.

    Happy hunting, The Gray Rider.
