Hello. Been on the site as an anonymous visitor many many times. Have learned a lot from many of you. Thank you for sharing your experience (always), your humor (often), your wisdom (more often than not), your passion (no, really?) and your patience (sometimes).
Been hunting for 40+ years in Europe and US/Canada. Experienced with Chamois (European mountain goat), Roe Deer (European deer), Sanglier (wild boar), Whitetail Deer, Black Bear, Moose, etc. Never been to Africa. Was poised to do it 20 years ago but had to send 5 kids through college; 'nough said, right? My Jules Burry .450 #2 ended up killing tuition bills instead of buffalo...
Out of that stage of life now, and planning to go this year for a cow buffalo hunt and some cull plains game. All I can afford at the time...
Shooting a Mauser 66 (telescopic action predecessor to the Blaser) in .458 Lott / Docter Sight with A Square Dead Tough and Monolithic Solids left over from 20 years ago, for what stomps; a CZ 550 in .416 Rigby / S&B 1.25-4x20 30 mm with A Frames for what bites; a Weatherby .340 / Zeiss 2.5-10x48 30 mm and a Winchester Classic 70 in .300 wby / S&B 1.5-6x42 30 mm with Nosler Partitions for the rest.
Looking forward to keep learning; maybe sharing a few things learned here and there, from the French Alps to Newfoundland and British Columbia, to America; and always continuing dreaming of THAT day.
Thank you all in advance.

welcome and with some planning I am sure you will get to Africa soon. Cow buff I think is a good choice for a lower cost hunt.

Welcome! Seems that you still have some good shooting irons left even if you had to let go of your 450! I feel for you, regardless how much you love your kids, it is always hard to part with a dear rifle!
I spend a fair amount of time in the great state of AZ chasing critters.
Cheers,
Cody

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Nelson. Is this message a PM format. I want to send you my email, but don't know if this is the cirrect way to do it. I'm at <pappas@mtaonline.net> Send me an email with your phone and I will call you about a skull I have. I went to school in Boston and am from Bernardston in the west part of the state. Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.
