I have no doubt that Africa is amazing. A booking agent came very close to convincing me once. I just can't see a Range Rover taking the place of a fine horse. 😉

true, but lions, cape buff, leopards, rhinos, and as on one of my safaris, agressive hippos a few miles from water dont kill land rovers so i think that may have something to do with their choice of hunting transportation 😁


Yup, it?s a beautifully hostile place! That?s what makes it so appealing.

THERE WAS A RESTAURANT ACROSS THE RIVER IN MEXICO THAT HAD A HUGE FULL SIZE MOUNTED JAGUAR. JAGUARS EXIST DOWN SOUTH NOT EVEN 100 MILES FROM BROWNSVILLE. WITH BALLS AND MONEY YOU CAN STILL HUNT THEM (ILLEGALLY) BUT THEN YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING WITH THEM. THE LAST JAGUAR IN THE U.S. WAS KILLED SHORTLY AFTER WW II ABOUT 20 MILES FROM BROWNSVILLE.

JAMES: "THE BALLS" IS A REFERENCE TO THE VENUE OF THE HUNT AS PARTS OF TAMAULIPAS CAN BE REALLY DANGEROUS, AND THE "UNDERGROUND" NATURE OF THE NON-SANCTIONED HUNT, AND NOT JUST THE DANGER IN HUNTING ANY OF THE BIG CATS. THERE WERE SOME TEXAS LION HUNTERS THAT RAN DOGS AND WERE RUMORED TO BE HUNTING JAGUAR IN SOUTH AMERICA, AND EVEN SNOW LEOPARD IN THE HIMALAYAS.

Alaskan Moose for me. I've got elk, black bear, deer, turkeys, marmots, and some other stuff, but never hunted moose. Gun would be my FA .454. I like hunting with revolvers. I do use a Vortex Viper as I can't see open sights to well anymore.
