Who inspired your interest in hunting?

Like many of you, my Dad was the impetus of hunting for me and my brothers. As I learned later, I was responsible for getting him back to hunting after a couple decades long sabbatical. I'm forever thankful for the beginning he gave me and have been blessed to be instrumental in getting my son into hunting (he was 6 months old on his first hunting trip), as well as my grandkids. 36 years later, my son and I will be hunting elk in a couple weeks as we have done (almost) every year.
Reading old Field and Stream and also The Field British mag. I would pore over the pictures and imagine. We grew up with air rifles, I only got a firearm of my own when I was 63!

looking for 300 h & h flanged ammo
Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
