"Hopefully you chased him to Nengo and he'll decide to lay low there for about 10 months. "

Nengo is a great camp and area with excellent variety of habitat types and game!! You should do well there! The camp is built into a small kopje where there may live a large monitor or two. The only downside is chalet #1 and possibly the others may a bit of aroma-de-bat... but they do keep the bugs under control. :):)

Hey Cody - I'll flip you for Chalet #1!

Thanks for the read. It made me finally get of my but and put my notes from my last safari (2016) into the computer. I may have to post my report soon (a little late, but better than never)

Sounds like something you could do in the Devil's Pool!

Great write-up Hank! You had a great trip to a wonderful place. To top it off you got to share it with your wife! Well done! Love the buffalo by the way...perfect!

I'm a little late to reading this report, but it was worth the wait.

Another great adventure recounted by one of AH's master storytellers. Thank you for sharing!

And best of luck on your final spiral horn!!

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
