I have no idea of how many handgun hunters have taken tahr in New Zealand but I do know that is no longer possible. With that in mind it was an easy choice of what game to take while hunting in Texas.
Used my ever faithful FA`s 454. That handgun has taken its share..
PS- this was on one of SCI sponsored handgun hunts at the old YO.. I don`t know how good those horn`s are size wise but he lives on in my reload room......

Well done as always!


It takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger squeeze.

That is pretty cool! James what do you do with the meat off of an animal like that, is it fit to eat.

LH, All the meat from the game taken on those hunts was donated and I believe it went to the Salvation Army for distribution....
