good luck on getting that back, but how you go about trying to hook it in 860 metres (2820 feet!!) of water is beyond me!! :confused:

470 fathom , makes it sound easier ,mike
will need a heavier grapple hook and some long heavy chain
so I can direct onto the hard bank and the tow it down hill and hopefully hook straight on to it and pull it off backwards .......
sound esay don't it ......

was dreaming of Africa , wanting to get back there , and not watching what I was doing and towed to far, when it happened .

Cake walk. Hope the new tech gear makes the target look bigger.

Enjoy sharing the tale and pics with your family and mates at home.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

On the vx6 2-12 what does the zl2 stand for?

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
