Always amazing.

Never disappointing.

It seems to me that anyone that develops an affliction with big iron, needs to see THE DOC.

Just like your articles in the discontinued HHI Sixgunner. Please keep sharing your adventures with the terminal performance data! I have most all my issues starting in 1995, when I question caliber or bullet use, I pull them out and pour over your data. Enjoy your ground hog season, around my place I might see two per year.

You Sir are an inspiration. I have the book that Larry Kelly and J D Jones wrote years ago, Hunting For Handgunners, and you wrote a chapter in it about various handguns and loads and what works, for you, and I find that it?s just as informative today as it was back then.
I enjoy the stories, keep it up.

You beat me to it Shortgun,
I just bought and read that book this winter. definitly a good read and enlightened me to some of the true mavericks in the handgun hunting world.

Doc James and the others have said it already, A WHITE RHINO with a revolver! just do not see that often. very cool.

How are rhino steaks?

Thanks for sharing, Doc! I always love reading about your hunts. Now that you?re retired, this would be a great time to write your book - it?d also give the ground hogs time to regenerate😜.
