G'day I'm John from Australia. I live in Northern NSW and hunt pigs, deer and goats. I may never get to hunt Africa, but if I do I have this idea that I'd like to do it "properly" not in a bit of private property where the animals are shot from hides or even vehicles. I have no wish to hunt Elephant or Rhino, but a Cape Buff would definitely be on the agenda, as well as some of the plains antelope on particular a Sable. My most "African" rifle is a CZ 550 full stock in 9.3x62 which I also hunt Asian Water Buffalo with.
Cheers,
John

John, welcome to AH.

There are plenty of places to get out and walk and stalk.
You may be in Africa sooner than you might think.

Welcome to AH, John. Most places do it walk and stalk. All the best. You'll be over sooner than you think. ( Especially hanging around this crowd.)

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.

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.
