Nope !

They don't allow hunting ,,,,,,,,,,, so there is No game left outside of the game parks .....

The Countries that have Safaris have plentiful game herds, because the money paid by hunters supports Game Wardens and Game management.... The money from hunting makes having game worth a lot to local people groups ...  Plus they get the Meat ....

 

I do work with A local group in Northern Uganda, Called "Rays of Hope for Uganda " We now have safe drinking water , a good School ,, Etc... You can see the Group on Facebook or their Website ...

 

Coffee fer da Grumps ...

But I do have a rifle that I hope to use in Africa Someday ,,, a .375 Ruger ...

Jabez,  Pale Wolfs local club is the "Orygun Old West Shooting Society"(OOWSS)  in Shedd  .  That's about 70 miles south of Portland right on Interstate 5.  Best make a date for that meet up cause he has been known to travel a bit.  Shame we won't see you at the National,  ya needs to get that kid to get is priorities straight.  ;-)

Great shoot with some good long range and team shoot ...

Thanks for the info on Pale Wolf ... When's a good time to catch him in his Den ???

Best thing to do is PM him.  He goes to most of there matches, at least he's there just about every time I go.  As for Palmers Gulch, when is it and who's running it now that Lefty retired.  Oh, and will I still have to kneel to shoot through that damn low window at the bottom of the hill.

SWMBO is out and slowly coming around.

Expensive treatment here, where we are at the moment, but insurance will cover $$ except for any deductible.

Oh well, at least it's warm.

I think Stranger shot with/mentioned a Swallow Fork from a match at Barrie, a couple of years ago.

Nice to see folks older than my 74 years still out playing cowboy, (Like the over 80++OK Valley Kid!)

But the Kid is too up-beat and happy to really fit in here!.

I shot with a very lovely Widow Lady that started shooting at 90 years of age she shot CAS for 3 years then Visited for 1 more year before she passed ...

She was loved by many ,,,, and Missed by All ... Heaven is a richer place with Sure Shot Shirley there ....

She was not a gun person until almost 90 , but she took to Cowboy Shooting like a Duck to water ...
