  • Back from Agrica, 2022

    Back home from South Africa on Sept 2nd after nine days hunting and four days flying. The Springfield went with me again. I am writing up the stories for HuntTalk and have posted the first four chapters in pdf format. Let's see if I can attach them here for your reading enjoyment. I had a great time hunting new animals and new territory but brought something back that I didn't want. Chapter One.pdf Chapter Two.pdf Chapter three.pdf Chapter 4.pdf

    Click on the story and you'll be prompted to download. Then it should ask if you want to open the file. If you don't get the prompt, look for the chapter in your "downloads" directory. Lots of photos.

      Great story Honker... now THAT is some Field and Stream content. Not one political advisory from start to finish. It sounds like a lot of work with the travel and all but what an adventure. The areas you hunted remind me of landscape in the midwest where I've hunted antelope, mulies and prairie dogs. Those are beautiful animals indeed. Your Springfield looks great in the pictures and did its job for you. Very nice! I'm impressed with your writing ability. I couldn't put it down after reading the firtst few pages. Thanks so much for posting this.

        Thanks. Glad you enjoyed it. I shot eleven animals this trip so there's a few more chapters to come.

            Chapter five is done. Enjoy. Apologies for misspelling Africa in thread title. No way to correct it after posting the thread.

              Excuse my impertinence for daring to question the mighty honk, but please, oh Herculean slayer of slow moving geese and pre-located animals: Where, on this planet, is the country, continent, or kingdom of Agrica located?
              Is it somewhere in Europe, behind the Russian steppes, or possibly in the Antarctic wastes, or is it strictly in the hidden recesses of your shallow little mind, inspired by the arduous reading of old adventure magazines and the writing of genuine hunters and authors from which your tales of the adventures of the mighty honk are plagiarized, with little attention to alteration?
              Please, oh mighty honkster, inform those of us whose geographical expertise does not include the locale of Agrica as to the whereabouts of this mythical place you have returned from. We, in our ignorance, compared to the mighty honk, do humbly beg you to enlighten us.​

                I have met five old women this week, and you, my friend, are four of them.

                  From Grete: "I have met five old women this week, and you, my friend, are four of them."
                  Well, first off, congratulations on your success in the dating circles of the nursing home and elderly dating circles.
                  Secondly, I am neither old, nor a woman, so your remark does not apply.
                  Remember, I have to value your opinion before it matters to me.
                  Have a nice day with the old ladies.

                    Nice to hear from you again 06, I hope all is well.

                    Thanks for the laughs.

                      This is good stuff!
                      It is honest, with all of the mistakes that do happen. You are a good story teller. I know what you mean, when trying to remember everything, as it all becomes a blur. Darrell a good friend of mine who has been to Africa more times than I can imagine, told me to keep a daily diary, for the very reason of remembering. You get a lifetime of hunting, in a very short period of time, that is surreal...as you know.
                      Again excellent material. I can read stuff like this any day-Thanks!

                        Great job on this one Honker. A great story told about as well as it could be done. That nyala was a monster and will be an exceptional mount. The hunt of a lifetime for sure. That looks like rough country and I'm glad you included the pictures. It would have been hard to imagine what you went through. Great job!

                              We came down to south Texas to spend a few days with the youngest.
                              We helped assemble a chicken house/run.

                              I knew a cattle rancher back in central Texas who shot an aoudad that had wandered onto his property, having escaped from an exotic game ranch.
