Greetings to ya'all. Lifelong Hunter and Fisherman.

Found this Board thru Gerry, vongruff of New Zealand. He built a most awesome hunting and skinning knife for me. I am well pleased.

Africa Hunting is a great place to be, Thanks for the Welcome P.H.

Welcome aboard. I agree Garry makes awesome knives. I have two of them. What have you hunted in the past? What kind and caliber rifles do you own? do you reload? Do you have any thoughts or dreams of hunting Africa?

Thanks for the welcome......I have hunted Canada, Mexico and most of the western states here at home. I live in the mountains so I hunt the local game including Black Bear and Mule Deer and various upland game birds.
I have a .458 Win. Mag. Bolt gun,.338 Win. Mag. Ruger No. 1, .280 Rem. M700 and of course the .30-06 in a Rem. 7400. Plus various centerfire .223's
Africa is one of those dreams that I carry around all day everyday on my mind.......Safari is in the works but I have many questions to ask......Oh and I Handload Everything. Love the Barnes Bullets.
............Have a gooday Shootist43...........Mike.

Hi and welcome from another Ca guy. Been to Africa 2 times and loved it. 1st time for 20 days with my daughter and this year for a month by myself. PM me if you want to talk about anything. I have hunted Ca, Nev and WY but want to hunt other states. I would like to pick your brain about other states if you are willing.
You will enjoy this site.

Welcome! What part of "The People's Republic of California" are you from? I have a friend that is about an hour south of Reno and he has quite a few critters running around his place, including black bears.

I have a @Von Gruff knife waiting for me when I get back to the state later this week.

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.

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.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.
