When I was a kid my father went hunting in Africa a few times and even took me once. How ever I am not financially able to go to Africa to hunt, the best I have done is Alaska.
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.
all 25 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple
