Welcome to AH Hawkeyesatx. First off, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVCE. There are lots of "Ex" G.I.(s) here and more than a few Cops (no slur intended.) Please tell us a little more about yourself as a hunter. Things like what have you hunted in the past, what kind and caliber rifles you own. Do you have any favorite calibers?
I have been an avid predator hunter, mostly coyotes. I use my Ruger American Predator in 6.5 Creedmoor for that.
Big game here in the States I like to hunt is Whitetail deer, Mule deer, elk, and occasionally moose. Deer hunting I use my Remington M700 BDL in .30-06, and that can double as my elk rifle. For elk, and moose I use my Weatherby Grand Slam in .300 Win Mag.
As of yet, I don't have any heavy calibers, but have had an Interarms Mk X in .375 H&H, and loved that rifle, cartridge combo. That one was more of a push when fired, not the slap like a .300 Win Mag.

Hello Everyone from San Antonio, TX.
I'm brand new ro the forum, and am a reloader.
I am prior military, and prior police officer.
I love ro hunt, and be outdoors.
I haven't been to Africa, yet, but would hope to go to mark it off my bucket list.
I've read the exploits of Craig Boddington and his hunting adventures in Africa. I've also read a couple of articles by Ron Spomer and his trips to Africa.
It looks like I will really enjoy the knowledge, and expertise members have on this this forum.
