Hello guys

Been a while since I've been active on the forum.

Thaught I would give an update on our season so far.

As we enter the last quarter of our hunting season with a few special hunts left on elephant, buffalo, hippo, croc and lion a look back at the success, and new friendships made, also meeting a few of our active AH members in camp. We have successfully taken al together on big 7, close to 40 animals already, which includes buffalo, lion, elephant, hippo, croc and to add as a special trophy, spotted hyenas. Plenty of plainsgame as well which does not make out part of this though.

Thank you to all the support from everyone and all the great times shared on hunts so far this season.

Happy hunting

We have had lots of rain and cold weather from yesterday, its still raining as we speak, but none the less it made our buffalo hunt interesting! Took him yesterday after tracking a few miles, and shot him while therainwas cominf down hard. What a great hunt.

We need the rain. Its beena very dry season up here.

Still raining down your side Charlie?

Yes Sir he did. But with the rain and humidity, they are still in the salt. Remember the timeframe for the skins. I will also make contact with Mike direct and arrange to get it there, and let you know right away when I had it delivered, part of my job :)

Please give Matt my congratulations as well! Love the gnarly bosses on that bull.

Good luck on the wart hog... Matt is a wart hog nut so find him a whopper!

Will do. The rain has stopped during the night and have pretty much clear skies today, so we are off on our quest again for Matt's wart pig.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
