Been shooting for 60+ years. Have hunted off and on for much of that but it’s been mostly birds. Decided it’s time to bring home some meat.

I know that I will never get to Africa but man do I wish I had given myself that 20-30 years ago.

By the way, this is far and away the best firearms and hunting site anywhere.

lots of people still even do DG hunts well into their 70s. You're only as old as you think you are.

And anyway, how old would you be if you didn't know the day you were born?

T3x7SAUM, welcome to the AH forum! I made my first trip t 69. I’ll soon be 74 and am working on my #5 hopefully for another cape buffalo or two and a leopard. Dont count yourself out! “Don't let the old man in!” as the Toby Keith song goes. It’s all up to you!

Believe me this forum will help you keep the old man away from your door!

Welcome to AH and the addiction!

It’s never to late and you will cherish the experience...and inspire those others that are slightly “past their prime” to take the leap. ;)

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
