Congrats, thanks for the hunting report! There is nothing wrong with appreciation of the beauty of Africa! Patience is a virtue.

Thank you sir!

Thanks for your interesting report. I am definitely somewhat ignorant but can you explain to me the comments concerning more information with a private e mail. Sorry if everyone else understands—I am perhaps just thick. Thanks for your patience.

What I am saying is members can feel free to PM, call, or whatsapp me for more to the story.

I am not a beginner, and would have also been letting the lead fly. This despite all my better judgement. I have no self restraint. Well, very little. I truly become immersed in the moment, and next thing I know, I hear myself say “Yeh, that is one beautiful (fill in the blank). Let’s go after him.” I have no regrets, except when I have to delay the next adventure because I blew my budget like a Nor’Easter. Oh well, ones man’s restraint is my next opportunity. LOL

I have had little to no self restraint in the past, but because of that house space is now limited, and taxidermy has started turning into euro mounts. Since I went overboard on three recent safaris, i had to be more careful on this one, for a number of reasons, also including do I really need another or a third one of (fill in the blank here with species) because its big?

Anyways, it was tough to walk away from some of the animals I encountered, but I'm ok with that and had a great time and hunt!(y)

Sounds like a great adventure. I bet you get what you're after. You are right though the experience is the most important thing after you been there a few times.

We had a great time and experience! If we both make DSC I'll tell you more about it.

Just finished reading @whitetail ’s report and yours, looks like you fellas had a great time! Nathan shared some info on his “rest of the story”, hopefully will get to talk to you in Dallas and get your story.

That waterbuck and sable would have been in trouble!

Thanks for sharing!

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).
