It is a privilege to make your acquaintance , Krish . I wish you the greatest success in your African Safari.Great encounter Major Khan. I have read few of your articles and they are very impressive. I am kind of new to this forum. I have spent most of my time acquiring fire arms. I reload all my calibers. May be in a year or two God willing I will make my trip to Africa. By the way I am a Hindu Hunter in the US.
Here, now ... you sound like a gentleman with most excellent taste , Krish ! I stayed back in Bangladesh permanently after the 1971 Liberation War came to an end on the 16th of December . And your experience sounds enviable ! I always dreamt of shooting an American White Tail deer or an American Elk some day .Well I have from 270 winchester on up to 505 Gibbs. My favorite is 340 why. After a long time I acquired a 375 wby mark v DG last month. Normaly I acquire brass ,bullets, and dies before the rifle. I enjoy reloading the cartridges. I left India just few years after the Bangladesh war. I got a few Ruger RSMS each in 375hh, 416 rigby, 458 lott. Currently trying to get a 450 rigby. It is lot of fun. I hunt for white tail dear, wild boar, Elk. Not no where near your experience.
I cannot begin to describe how fortunate I was , PARA45 ! Not only did I end up surviving the entire ordeal.... But I ended up surviving this close brush with death COMPLETELY UNSCATHED . It was as if the Lord Himself sent old Tobin to rescue me on that fateful day .Wow Maj Khan, another fantastic story full of adrenaline. You are one lucky man to have had your friend there to save the day. Again, thank you sir for sharing your great stories.
Of course not , PARA45 ! Those retards who currently run India have banned hunting since 1972, after the passing of the so called " Wild Life Protection Act - 1972 " .Maj Khan sir, are you still living in India, and do you still hunt?
It is my utmost privilege to share my reminiscences with such fine gentlemen such as yourselves , Shark ZA . I was 29 years old in 1970.Thank you Major, this has brought visibility to a whole era of hunting I have not read up on and I value this content.
I was born in 1970.
It was bone chilling to have to live through it , Ridge Walker ! If I ever have to contend with an unwounded male royal Bengal tiger ever again , then I will have you behind me with your .375 Holland & Holland magnum calibre Winchester Model 70 , in order to act as my reinforcements !Yikes! Reading this sent chills up my spine! Another exciting tale! Thanks again!
It is my privilege that you have enjoyed this article , Uncle Sauce . Thank you so much for your kind words . Keep a weather eye open . I shall hopefully be writing a brand new article tomorrow night .Wow! What a heart pumping story Major! They just keep getting better and better! Just amazing! Thanks again for another great story!
